New Years Resolution Win

December 27th, 2012 · 9 Comments · Comments on Process, Digital Process, Processing, topo, Topography

Seldom do I make a new years resolution. But when I do, keeping one is even more of a rarity. I’m happy to report that in the year of 2012 I kept a promise to myself. My 2012 New Years Resolution was: In 2012 I will sell a piece of art to a complete stranger. […]

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 […]

July 2nd, 2010 · No Comments · Comments on Process

The inactivity on this blog is a special kind of irony. Summed up nicely by our friend ZeFrank: If you don’t wanna run out of ideas the best thing to do is not to execute them. You can tell yourself that you don’t have the time or resources to do ‘em right. Then they stay […]

Masterpiece

May 21st, 2008 · 2 Comments · Art, Comments on Process, Concept, Digital Process

A co-worker and I were recently drooling over some of Jonathan Harris’s more recent work. It made me realize that the projects I talk about here (and occasionally engage in) are very disconnected and hobby-ish. They do NOT form one cohesive body of work. They are more about the journey of trying different things almost […]

Just a little while ago I made some comments about Chuck Close’s process. Since then I’ve revisited Joshua Davis’s site and downloaded his presentation from 07. For those that don’t know Joshua Davis, he is an artist that takes design elements and uses random math in Flash to position things, generating a thousand new compositions […]

The TwitterFace project is getting close to finished. I’m modeling this project after an old school NES game. Recreating some of the NES experience has been one of my main tasks. It’s been a lot of fun creating an 8-bit avatar, which I will post soon. I found the perfect font. And now I’m trying […]

Okay, the holiday season is over, I’ve become accustom to the sleeping patterns of a newborn and I have just finished up on two freelance projects, which should lead to a return of activity here. After the TwitterFace project is complete, I’m thinking about going analog on the next project. I have recently obtained a […]
