A brief animation transforming some fine art classics into Lisa Frank worlds. A healthy mix of candy, space, rainbows, magic, unicorns, and the renaissance.
Posters and event flyers (both digital and screen-printed) created between 2009–2012.
Books, zines, and other publications created between 2009-2012 for school and for fun.
Through the Tiny Press Practices class at CalArts (taught by Jen Hofer) I created this small hand-made zine. It is filled with gems from my notebook (handwritten = original, typeset = overheard), screenprinted on various kinds of paper, and each is bound with a separate disposable photo. Check out the brand new Tiny Press archive!
In February, Lianna KV of CalArts asked Thea Lorentzen and me to design the first issue of a school newspaper entitled the Calarts Eye. Our job was to create a basic format for future designers to jump off of, since each would be designed by someone different. We also helped naming some columns, as well as drawing and commissioning editorial illustrations. The articles can be viewed here.
Sample spreads from a magazine which celebrates competitive beard and mustache growing.
A primate-centric book of imagemaking.
Our BFA2 class at CalArts collectively decided on a topic (“Electric”) and a fixed height, and each made a small publication. We then bound them together (each in whatever order we pleased), and created unique packaging for the book. I chose to make a small book of illustrations about Nikola Tesla.
We were given a selection of photos, and asked to choose one, come up with a word/phrase to sum it up and create a typographic tshirt, packaging, and documentation for it. I chose a sears-portrait of a tiny dog, and thought ‘chaos’ fit quite nicely. (Shirt models: Tiffanie Tran and Pocket Datau)
