Laughingsquid founder Scott Beale took a picture of me years ago when I was working at Caffe Trieste. I don’t remember him taking it, but I stumbled upon it today while doing a search.
Using Chrome’s Build application, I built a virtual house out of Legos.
This is a simple house I build out of virtual LEGOs in Google’s Build app.
Here’s the link to my virtual Lego house in Australia.
It works like a simplified version of Google’s Sketchup app. If you have worked with Sketchup, or even if you haven’t, you should be able to figure it out pretty quickly. But once you do, be prepared to waste a lot of time working with virtual LEGOs.
I created a banner in Adobe Illustrator, a pretzel cart in Google SketchUp, and then laid out a presentation with Adobe InDesign to show to the client.
I haven’t drawn anything in a while, so I spent the day at work doing some drawings on my iPad. This is probably the best one from that day.
My work Lego Nude – which is, well, a nude rendered in Legos – won the People’s Choice Award at the Del Mar Fair. But, it didn’t even win an honorable mention with the judges.
So I’m going to interpret that result as demonstrating that I am too cutting edge for the establish hegemony, and chalk this up as further validation of my status as the preeminent post-post-modern art genius.
have had another work of art from my wallpaper series on display of a pigeon on a coffee table at Caffe Trieste that I call “Trieste Regular.”
will be was on display at the 2011 Del Mar Fair now through the end of the fair on July 4th.
I taught a class on Adobe Captivate. I created a video tutorial on Photshop to test the software out.
I participated in a Photomarathon on October 17th.
We had to take 12 images on 12 given topics, in the same order that the topics appear on the list given to us on the day of the event. The 12 topics were:
Inside Out; Infested; Flavor; Drama; Twenty-six; My Secret; Seeing Double; The Path; Highs & Lows; Birds Eye View; World in Motion; Self Portrait.
And here’s what I came up with:
This is the 4th or so time I’ve designed a logo, and again, it wasn’t the job description. I was just making a web site. It’s pretty cool though.
The company does asset protection, which is to say, they make it so people that have a bunch of money keep their money.
Argent is the silver color used in family crests.
I used a shield to reference a coat of arms and to symbolize trustworthiness and protection. The color argent shows up in crests usually as white, so I employed a lot of white in the logo (the grey background is not part of the logo).
