Raindrops on the Kitchen Floor by Mason Jennings - Music Video

The concept came about when I saw these two remote controlled Robots, called Zibits, interacting. I thought, what if the two robots (sold as a pair at Toys 'R' Us) where separated? Would they search for each other? Would one come to the other's rescue? Thus begins the blue robot's search all over the city of Atlanta for his long lost companion, leaving the comforts of home and familiar toys and into the bustle of the city with psychedelic and freakish toys and unbathed Occupy Atlanta demonstrators.

The song by Mason Jennings just fit the quaint, heart-warming story perfectly.

Printing Business Cards

I recently had the pleasure of working with Bill Paulus, who has to be one of the most passionate enthusiasts when it comes to letterpress. He has rebuilt/restored a number of these historical machines (one from 1917) in his basement. We had a great time experimenting with paper stock, inks, and printing techniques. I was fortunate to have found Bill.

Collaborative Book Spread

Here is what I have so far for a collaborative book project centered around the theme of... wait for it... death.

I remember when I was a voice major, the professors would ask a student what the song they just sang (in german/french/etc) was about. If the person had no idea what the song was about, they would typically respond with, "uhh... death?" I guess because it must be the most prevalent and overly-utilized artistic subject.

It has been said that Death is the Great Equalizer. I think you can trace that concept back to King Solomon in about 935 B.C. when he wrote:

Where Do Your Taxes Really Go? Infographic

In retrospect, taxes as the subject for an infographic maybe wasn't the most impetuous choice. Taxes are incredibly complicated, and it is difficult to find statistics that agree.

The focus is on where tax dollars are spent. With staggering figures in the billions, I wanted to present the information in the simplest way: Where does One U.S. Dollar go? So if you paid $5,000 in taxes, you could multiply that by $0.17 and determine how much of your taxes went to the National Defense. Really exciting stuff.

Independent Voice Project - Screen Printing

For my Independent Voice project I would like to make a screen printed poster (2-3 colors). Screen Printing is something I dabbled in early on, but never truly had a chance to explore in depth. Below are some options of what I may want to use for artwork. Please leave any suggestions as to what may a good choice.
