A friend, and fellow co-worker, Ben has started his own web site dedicated to the beauty of typography. Thought type was boring? You're not exposed to thisdayintype.com. If you got what it takes, you may just be able to make his calendar.
I even got to have a go at Memorial Day.
Finally, I am being recognized as the model I truely am.
This is the latest Nixon ad we've made, starring skate phenom Paul Rodriguez Jr.
Of course, anyone that knows my work (or my smarmy jacket) will realize that it's my wrist highlighted in the shot.
I wasn't threatened at all to have P-Rod in the ad as well. I hope it gives him some street cred.
A nice mashup of work from two amazing photographers (Jason Nocito and Ray Gordon).
It was fun how we pulled this one together.
Now I sit back and wait for the royalties roll in...

I have been reading this book lately and really digging it.
I especially dig it because it was written by my favorite Portland performance artist-come-movie director-come-writer.
The fact that most of the storries are both messed up and beautiful helps too.
Oh yeah... and the jacket that comes in either yellow or bright pink.
I liked the yellow.
I've been meaning to post this for a while.
My good friends Marty Schnapf and Tahni Holt and a few other folks put together a little performance/ concert about a month back. It was all for the finale of Marty's installation at the downtown Stumptown called "the swallows", in which Marty had projected a series of words on the wall of Stumptown.
10 of us (Marty, Tahni, Sarah Farrell, Tom Thorson and Nancy (interiors project), Jesse Lichtenstein, David Neevel, Liam Kenna (Megadome, Snuggleups), and Katie O'Brien-Clarke (Iretsu)) all created a song around the words from Marty's show. The fun part was that each of us joined in and contributed to each others songs. It was all strung together by a performance/drinking game conceived by Marty and Tahni. Hard to explain, but it worked.
Lots of folks showed up for the performance, and although we didn't have much of a sound system (or stage for that matter) everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
The best part for me was meeting a ton of cool new people. I hope to stay in touch.
