Typography -- Newport

Some pretty good, metal-cut typography found on a fountain downtown Newport, Kentucky.

Font Design

This is a simple font design that I drew up on paper some time ago. The font is designed with a modern, san-serif look based on the Cyrillic alphabet, which consists of 33 characters. This design was never turned into a usable font on the computer.

Website Debug

As you probably know, I recently launched my new website. The design is completely HTML based, something that I am new to (my previous sites were Flash based) and there were a few bugs that showed up across different browsers/resolutions. I think I have the majority of these issues debugged and I will be able to sleep more peacefully. If you run across any bugs, please report them on this blog or via email. Thanks for your continued support.

Heredity and Training.

New print design, Heredity and Training. The basis for the typography is a partial quote from Mark Twain's, A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court; quoted as, "We speak of nature; it is folly; there is no such thing as nature; what we call by that misleading name is merely heredity and training." The photography was taken downtown Cincinnati.

Distortion Experiment 1

Wanted to do a little bit of experimentation on photo manipulation/distortion. This is pretty basic, but I think the result is interesting.

Joshua & Proverbs in Print

Here is some photos of the printed works, Joshua & Proverbs. Thought you might want to see. Enjoy.

7M3 Poster

I made this just for fun. I have been looking over a lot of musical event posters lately (mainly at and I was inspired to try my hand at the style. Seven Mary Three was one of my favorite bands several years ago (their American Standard album is still one of the best in its genre) and I wanted to feature them on the poster. Let me know what you think.

An overexposed photo I took of one of the bridges going from Newport to Cincinnati this evening. The treatment is up for interpretation.

Planet of the Apes

This is one of the best movie posters that I have ever run across. It blew my mind. The design is by Todd Slater.

New Prints -- Proverbs & Joshua

Here are a couple of new prints that I just finished working on (I will be posting them on the website soon). These posters are inspired by quotes from the Bible. These are a few quotes that stood out to me and I wanted to present them in a manner in which you probably are not accustomed to. Both quotes are presented in a low contrast colour layout which emphasizes the fact that they have to be truly look at and examined to absorb the meaning behind them (you can't take everything in at a glance).


Finally, I have the new site up and running (smoothly, I hope) and I have time to post some of my work again. I hope to be able to make regular posts once again on this blog, so stay tuned in. Here are some pictures I took of downtown Cincinnati. These were taken with my Canon 350D.
