I like to think I bought these shoes from Old School Shoes in Santa Cruz, CA, but the more likely story is I had to order them online, because it’s rare to find the shoes you want in my size (10) in a store.

You’re The Puppet

Of the many absurd sound bites that Trump has subjected Americans to, “you’re the puppet” remains my favorite.

A Day at Facebook

Avery labels. This was a collage I made for a zine assembled by my colleagues at Facebook, intended to showcase the side art skills of our writing team. I was attempting to capture the mildly frantic pace of life involved at working there, which involves a lot of fast walking to back to back meetings, and long freeway commutes in private shuttles.

Fishing Lures

Colored pencil.

Not great drawings THB, but I am fascinated with this subject.

Mushroom Card

Felt, random paper I bought at Seattle South Lake Union Goodwill.

I won’t ever tire of 70’s craft motifs, mushrooms in particular.

Typewriter #6345

Sharpie. I drew this freehand and always enjoy the mildly warped perspective this produces. It’s interesting to think about how a drawing like this is a visual impression communicated to your hand one line at a time. How that can result in a recognizable drawing is amazing, for someone who doesn’t take drawing ability for granted.

Stare Bears: Risograph

Risograph print, Facebook Analog Research Lab

This project represents a mild act of bravery, as it took courage to actually operate the risograph machines available to us at work, which is otherwise only used by career visual designers who use it to produce tastefully sparse corporate propaganda posters with precise typography.

VR Lyfe

Paper by 53, iPad. I drew this series to accompany a presentation for a VR-themed communications event put on by the University of Washington.
