One More Jersey Design for Open Air

December 4th, 2012 Permalink

openAir5_1-1 I uploaded the final file for another Open Air Bikes jersey. Apparently Open Air sold all of the last ones I designed for them, so they re-upped and ordered a third design. That’s pretty cool! This design was my favorite from the get go, but it didn’t make the first round. I’m happy that […]

This design was my favorite from the get go, but it didn’t make the first round. I’m happy that it’s going in the second.

Dead of Night Poster

Dead of Night Poster I did this little poster here for Moorpark based Dead of Night. This is the web version – we made different versions for the printed 11″x17″ posters and the 4″x6″ post cards. I shot the images of the skull in my studio. It is a styrofoam prop Amelia had left over […]

I did this little poster here for Moorpark based Dead of Night. This is the web version – we made different versions for the printed 11″x17″ posters and the 4″x6″ post cards. I shot the images of the skull in my studio. It is a styrofoam prop Amelia had left over from Halloween.

I love doing rock posters, so I’ve been pretty excited about this job. It takes me back to my days as a fledgling designer when I was making band fliers with black construction paper and Letraset, printing them out on a Xerox machine.

Dead of Night will be playing on Friday December 7 a Arena Sports Grill and bar in Simi Valley, CA.

My Slack Time Has Not Been Unproductive

October 27th, 2012 Permalink

So, I guess that I’ve been slacking way hard with this blog lately. I got really caught up on a really big web project that took months out of my life. I don’t think that I ever really recovered. That’s not to say that I haven’t been keeping up on my own projects. Just in […]

So, I guess that I’ve been slacking way hard with this blog lately. I got really caught up on a really big web project that took months out of my life. I don’t think that I ever really recovered. That’s not to say that I haven’t been keeping up on my own projects. Just in the last few weeks, I knocked out a few images for my Fillmore series. I’ve been kind of focusing on taking pictures of the town as well as the usual images of trees and farmland.

3 Icons: Home – Work – Contact

Driven by the misguided notion that I could somehow determine the personality of my new web page by creating some funny images, I made these three icons for my website.

The new Freekmagnet site is here. The interface has be completely designed and all of the Flash heinousness has been removed. There’s a couple of new images in the series that I shot at about the same period of time.

Freekmagnet is a collection of images I put together in 2002-2005. At the time, I was obsessed with the works of such photographers as Lewis Carroll and Julia Margaret Cameron and I spent most of my time reading Victorian adventure novels for inspiration. Most of the images were shot in my warehouse in Emeryville, CA. I lit the place with a pair of 750w fresnel lights and a couple of halogen work lights. I used a Kiev 88CM and an old Speed Graphic for cameras. The models were friends and acquaintances from around my neighborhood. I made the props myself.

In 2005, I collected the works and published a book using rubber stamps and an inkjet printer. The collection was exhibited at a small art gallery in Oakland, CA.

I must confess that this announcement comes a little late as it has been a while since I finished the new site. This blog appeared mere days after the freekmagnet.com site was finished and I’d completely forgotten about the update.
