Look what I found while cleaning up my drafts folder. It’s some exploratory stuff from the Bison project. If I remember right, each square was rotating based on how luminous the pixel underneath it was.

Bison — Complete

September 16th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Bison, Digital Process

So I’ve been holding on to these images for a long time and it’s time to let them go, and end the bison project. These images were pulled from a set that spans years 1902-2000. I can’t tell you how much I’ve wrestled with calling this “done”. You can see how this project changed over […]

Bison Contact Sheet

July 22nd, 2011 · No Comments · Bison, Digital Process

I’ve hit a little block in the whole end product here. Really, I think I’m just scared to finish and I have a few different options…more on that later. But here is the contact sheet for the whole batch. The cool thing here (at least to me) is that old worn out pieces of US […]

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 […]

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 […]
