Abstract Piano Cover

Album Production

One of the many joys of being an artist is the ability to tackle many art forms. I am a designer, photographer and a musician. A lot of my personal art (art I create for myself) is abstract in nature. This is a sweet release from the corporate imagery I work to create everyday. While personal projects are easily put on hold in order to finish up client work, I’m making a true effort to complete a couple personal projects this year.

Fairy Tale Photo Composition

Creating a Whole New World

Fairy Tale Photo Composition
I’ve been super busy in Photoshop over the last few weeks creating fairy tale lands for an upcoming project in 2012! Most of you know my artwork is mostly abstracts mixed with a little photography here and there. This is the first project where I literally dove head first into photo composition thus, unleashing completely new Photoshop powers.

{ART BREAK} Cafe Serre

Great animation paired with a storyline full of little laughs and surprises is what makes Cafe Serre so magical. The animation style is reminiscent of Pixar’s greatest films and yet, a small team pulled this animated short together. With the help of 3dsMax, Photoshop and After Effects, the team was able to create a very real 50’s style diner complete with a donut eating cop who just so happens to stop a burglar without ever intending too! Perhaps lack of focus/awareness can come in useful after all!
