Back to School

School will be starting up again soon. 

Not really looking forward to school starting up again. I did not miss all the all nighters I pulled last semester. continue...


 Feist Music Poster 

Huge Feist fan. I got this book called "Master Poster Design" There are small companies of teams who freelance music posters as a living. People like Hammer Press, Aesthetic Apparatus, Patent Pending Design, and Heads of States are just some of my favorite from the book. I wanted to do a promotional art poster for her concert in Toronto. 

I'm looking forwards to exploring more silkscreening process this coming semester. 

Illustrative Book

Illustrative Book

Vector cut out these images and used the laser cuter to make these small hand charms.

For J.T.'s Illustrative book class I made a children's book about two best friends hanging out over the time span of one day.  I posted some of my favorite spreads but they lack the text layout. 

The merchandise I made to accompany the book was two best friend necklaces. They fit inside each other and also some extra necklaces for fun. 

Typography 3: Wave Book

Type III

We were given a project to design a book given a single word. My word was WAVE and Icreated a 107 page book with articles and stories related to  major world known genocide events. My book depicts the feeling of waves movements. 

Manifesto: Destruction, power, repetition and purification are the actions but the results are life changing. fascinated with the history I wanted to explore a topic that related the physical characteristics produced by physical water waves. Waves like genocide are destructive, cleansing, repetitive and powerful. Theses are the aspects of wave. They surround the bodies of land in out small planet and affect us all no matter your location. The politics of human/civil rights of different societies is challenged by the idea of ethnic cleansing. I wanted to discuss the waves of genocide through the story-telling of how we are all affected by the endless wave of limited thinking.
