Topography Interior Design for Basecamp Hotels

March 13th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Art, Digital Process, Topography

So I was pleasantly surprised to get a message from Bascamp Hotels in South Lake Tahoe a few weeks ago. They liked some were interested in collaborating after seeing some previous work on the blog and wanted to see if we could work together to create some interior visuals. Their logo incorporates the California bear. This kid of reminds […]

The Bison Thing Explained Pt. 3 — Concept and Execution

July 7th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Art, Bison, Code, Comments on Process, Concept, Digital Process

On my first visit to Memphis I walked into Graceland with a mild appreciation of Elvis and the tacky souvenirs he left behind. But by the time I left I fully understood the world’s infatuation of this human being. The image of Elvis was defined differently for me. This was a similar experience to the […]

The Bison Thing Explained Pt. 2 — How I got hooked on Bison

July 6th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Art, Bison, Comments on Process, Concept, Digital Process

It all started with the book American Buffalo, in which author Steven Rinella wins a lottery and gets approved to hunt Bison in Canada. Along the way he explains the history and myth of the American Buffalo. Soon after the book I found myself infatuated and started on a mission that is the subtitle of […]

The Bison Thing Explained Pt. 1 — What’s up with all the Bison?

June 28th, 2011 · No Comments · Art, Bison, Code, Comments on Process, Digital Process

I bumped into an old developer friend recently. It was a brief encounter in which we quickly talked about what we were working on at work and at home. Before I walked away he said, “What’s up with all the Bison stuff? I don’t get it. Is it a design thing?” To which I replied, […]

Bison Mint Concept

January 23rd, 2011 · No Comments · Art, Bison, Code, Comments on Process, Concept, Digital Process

It’s been some time and I still can’t get bison off the brain. “Indian Head” or “Bison” nickels were always an object of curiosity when I was young.  I’ve been experimenting with creating a little mint of my own from assets from my first bison sketch. I’m playing with the idea of creating a bison […]

Drawing Bison

February 10th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Art, Bison, Code, Digital Process, Drawing

I read this book a while back. The American Bison as a symbol/metaphor was one of the books main themes. The animal was powerful, abundant, and dumb as a rock. There are some interesting bits about Buffalo Nickels in the book. Buffalo nickels were a part of my childhood. I remember studying the powerful beast […]

Updated Nest

October 2nd, 2008 · No Comments · Art, Code, Digital Process, Drawing

I took the nest a bit further. I sketched out some twig shapes, scanned them in, and traced them into vectors. Also added some color variation. I might play with pulling color information from an image w/ getPixel and maybe write it out to a massive PNG and get it printed. I’ve got some other […]

Simple Nest

August 13th, 2008 · 3 Comments · Art, Code, Concept, Digital Process, Drawing

I’m learning to draw with code. A lot of what I’ve seen out there in the interwebs is based on mathematical theories named after dudes from the sixties and seventies. I’m inspired by all that, but I’m also interested in recreating systems in nature through generative art. Here is a simple nest I drew with […]

Pink Box

August 2nd, 2008 · 1 Comment · Art, Code, Concept, Digital Process, Drawing

Behold, my very first generative comp. The image of a neon hot pink, scribbled, slightly-rotated square popped into my head one day. Maybe I’ve been listening to too much Justice. Made w/ Actionscript 3 and the Bezier curve fitting function built into Tweener.
