The Mallrat Collection focuses a lens onto my adolescence. During this time, I spent a majority of my days at the mall with my friends. This project replicated the construction of the mall with abstract representation, displaying forty of my closest friend. The piece contains lights, which mimic the neon lifestyle of public shopping. The surface is made of old Magic the Gathering cards, recollecting the hobby in which we all shared.
As many of you know, I recently got married at the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse, New York. Our wedding, was a masquerade, and I decided to make customized masks for each of the groomsmen. All photos are taken by Kevin Schoonover at Flying Whale Studios.
This Halloween, I had the privilege of working with the Morris-Jumel Mansion in New York to develop and produce 20 unique leather masks for a masquerade gala celebrating the life of Eliza Jumel. These masks pick of their designs and colors from the architecture of the house, and demonstrate various qualities of Victorian horror.
I've always wanted to be a cartoonist. Ever since I sat in front of the television to watch Chuck Jones and Tex Avery and Fritz Freling and the works of William Hannah and Joseph Barbera, I've desired an involvement in animation. I finally have the tools and skills to attempt this monumental technique!
Workin' Progress tells the story about the process of choosing what concepts to address in artwork, and how to technically address them. Often times, self-induced limitations, parameters, and rules become the soul of the final product itself.
Made for the PECO lights, this piece utilizes the vertical struts of the projection screen to create an illusion of depth. The animation takes full advantage of this, allowing the scene to read as a dragon moving through a bamboo forest.
