Weekly Works is an ongoing selection of personal work. Most times for fun and experimentation. Usually created late night after obsessing over some tv show, comic, video game, song, artist or movie.
Neil deGrasse Tyson has become more and more visible and outspoken these days. He's one of my favorite astrophysicist and champions of science. I believe the most important thing I ever learned in school was the scientific method, it's a good way to approach all unknowns in life. It encourages us to explore and dream. Dr. Tyson has a rare talent for communicating astronomical ideas in science with relevance and aproachability. A perfectly capable successor to the late great Carl Sagan.
I love graphic design and owe a lot of my life to it, however sometimes I wish I could gaze upon the world without having to visually deconstruct it. After formally learning about graphic design it became near impossible to unsee what lies beneath all design. The closest thing I can compare it to is when I started skateboarding, I couldn't help seeing skate lines everywhere I looked. I'm sure this experience crosses many forms of art and creativity.
If you've been on Turntable.fm then you probably recognize this little guy. Lately my friends and I have been DJing for each other through the site. After hours of searching for songs and jokes I start to feel like our little wobble-headed ginger friend here. I think we all descided no matter how many points we rack up, we're going to stick with this avatar.
This spring Design Is Love hosted another of their Design Fund projects. The contest was to design a poster with an "Outer Space" theme. The cool part was the winning design would be screen printed using a choice of 2 inks and 1 paper color. I chose the black speckle tone paper with a metallic gold and a white ink. I may make this available on my society6 page for purchase but I really think it works best with the ink and paper combo.
I'm definitely going to pick up a print of the winning poster for myself as well.
