Love is a Wicked Game

| 0 comments |

Sometimes I thought what I was doing was all for the better. But there are universal occurrences words cannot describe nor can we predict. Love is one of them.

They Looked

| 0 comments |

Sought after the fact, they looked for a sign. Something. Anything. An affirmation of the radicalism that their brothers once left. But in the end, all that was left was an eerie beginning. That tended to keep eyes wandering, eyebrows raised, slowly questioning the true meaning of their deposition.

Yea, this is my infamous Civil Fields piece created a few Summers ago, now canvas printed, stretched, and framed. I must say, it looks quite lovely.

Beautiful Mellow Yellow

Ain't nothing like mother fuckin' yellow to get you through these lame ass heat waves this summer. I feel bad for the folks in DC. It's gonna be 126 degrees F and 100% humidity there. Hipsters with substantial bearding are expected to die.

Someone Once Asked

| 0 comments |

I was once asked why I got into design. And when I say design, I do speak of the many languages of design. From interior of baths to the canvas, music to the digital wireframes, design is what I largely have set out to do.

So why design? Why not medicine, law, construction, or education? For one, I feel good design excels with an emphasis on respect - consideration for everything it encompasses. I'm not saying it is unbiased compared to the other industries mentioned, but it does not deny its biases nor points its finger at its shortcomings. It is what it is - good design will flourish while bad design is universally rejected.

It is... unlike our fragmented political system of today. Where it feels like watching we're all watching the WWF, except the actions of these individuals are creating real ramifications down the line. Design does not strive to have an Agenda. It is there to solve problems - real wicked ones. To connect the dots and bring a truer reality to light, not what some man on pedestal is telling us.

In a way, design can be labeled as a distraction. A distraction from how fragmented we are as people. Or how angry we are at problems we can't seem to grasp. The fact is, everything is ultimately connected, and design seeks to expose this. Even in an age where technology is moving faster than we could have ever imagined, it has hasn't really solved anything over the past few years, only revealing how fragmented we are as an entire generation.

My intent is to use the tool of design to flatten the canvas and draw connections that are not based on political agendas or self-serving motives, but the unbiased language of humanity itself. The only problem with this approach is that humanity is inherently biased (as am I), leaving me pondering if what I'm setting out to do is possible at all. It couldn't hurt though, right?

This post-neon period should last about 2 more months. Then it's back to black and white.

I think I'd be lying if I were to say one of my dreams wasn't to set up a hype machine/ad/marketing agency one day, but I think I'm already on my way to finding the top models. This is Paola from Guadalajara, Mexico. She likes kittens and Iron Maiden and has agreed to be on my A-team.

Lykke Li is a Blessing

Sometimes I think Lykke Li really should do a performance on the moon. Her sweet Swedish tendencies may prove to the aliens once and for all that we're not all trying to blow up things in the Middle East.

GTA IV in Real Life

| 0 comments |

No, not the Chapelle skit (that was good, too), but I'm talking about the recently released community-developed realism mods for GTA IV. Makes me wonder why Sony couldn't pull their shit together and make Playstation Home look like this instead of the steaming pile doo-doo it is right now.
