Shorter, more frequent updates. The main meat of the site will be static pages describing my more complete or noteworthy projects, which […]

After Long Silence

With only two posts in the last nine months I thought it was time to make provide another missive as proof of my continuing existence… I’ve been toying with an idea, likely never to make it into the material world, but fun nonetheless: The “faceless watch”, an idea I haven’t seen before.

What’s In A Gauge

Back in the USSR

New Business Cards

Simulating Spin-Out Skid Marks

Sometimes you’ve got to write a script- like to generate a wreath out of cams… but for some things you’ve just got to bust out the magic markers and rubber bands- Gave me just the information I needed-

Creative Radial Clones: SVG with Inkscape and PHP

Lately I’ve been working on drawing up some graphic desgin ideas I’ve had, mostly centering around the race team “Project Fate”… thinking along the lines of logos to try to figure out a team identity, aesthetic- imagery of engines, oil stuff, with a sort of old fashioned simple powerful monochrome theme.
