Home Is Where The Art Is

This is the latest iteration of a project I’ve been working on for Able + Baker. Jen came up with the idea, and I’ve been trying to find a simple but playful way to represent it. The font is Quicksand and is F-R-E-E.

Sometimes the best concerts are never meant to be. In this case, the stellar lineup of Phat Battery, Hot Tub Love Spell and the game-changing Pharaoh Phaucet can only be accessed in our collective imagination. Maybe GAMH will reconsider this show after seeing the poster…

Sweet Tunes

Assembling a decent setup for listening to records took me a lot longer than it should have. It turns out there are a lot of key pieces involved besides a turntable. I need speakers? And a receiver? And something on which these items can rest?

In my case, I got the turntable from a very generous friend, the receiver from an amazing (if earthquake unfriendly) shop, and the table from a random street corner about a block from my apartment. I really hope someone wasn’t moving.

This painting is meant to commemorate this too-long assembly process. It should be available on the Able + Baker website soon, and prints will also be on hand at Unique LA this weekend.

Finally finished this illustration… it’s the third in my series of cityscapes. Each one is loosely influenced on a particular region, so I guess this is the “Russia” scape. I’d be interested to know if it reminds anyone of a different part of the world, though.

Important Questions

I finally got around to finishing this project: a set of interview questions.

Last fall my job at the Lawrence Hall of Science ended, and I was forced to enter the sometimes formidable, often confounding and always esteem-crushing world of the job hunt. Graveling for work is not easy or fun, but it did give me a chance to observe, repeatedly, my interviewer struggle just as much as myself. Much to my complete amazement, all the stereotypical interview questions – the ones you’ve heard in every movie and sitcom for your entire life – are, well… still in heavy rotation.
