Completed in the summer of 2010, the multi-colored yarn moustache was conceived as a going away present for my friend April. In addition to being one of my best friends for more than a decade, she taught me to knit. A tribute yarn bomb seemed like the perfect gift to send her off to Philadelphia. I enlisted my weekly knitting group to help adorn James Tyler’s Brickhead 3. The giant head sculpture is in Davlan Park on the 400 block of Mass Avenue. The yarn bomb lasted a few weeks, then mysteriously disappeared.

A project of the Indy Film Fest, the Bigger Picture Show features re-invented movie posters for an art show/fundraiser. I took a stab at one of my favorites, Waiting for Guffman. Though it’s one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen, the tragedy within the comedy offers some of the most interesting moments in the film. When Corky erupts on the city council because he’s been denied budget for his production and threatens to go home and bite his pillow, the panic the acting troupe feels when they see that the folding metal chair they’ve reserved for the critic is empty, the moment Corky St. Clair realizes Guffman isn’t Guffman at all, just some random bloke. The spinning propeller of his beanie cap and over done eyeliner seem to mock the tragic deflation in his expression.
Lewis Van Arnam established LVA Represents in Brooklyn in 1977, and since then has been representing high caliber fashion, beauty and lifestyle photographers. The emails for LVA Represents and LVA+ are sent to creative directors and art buyers around the globe. I create and analyze the results of each email for Wise Elephant.

Dr. Jamie Lopez hired me to design her logo, website and business cards for her private mental health practice in San Jose, California. Jamie requested that her identity elements convey professionalism and modernity. She picked the green, gray and black color palette and asked for a simple, geographic brand mark.
I knit with a group that meets in Broad Ripple in Indianapolis. The founder hired me to create some identity and web banner graphics for the group. My only directives were to base the designs on yarn and knitting and to include the group name, Pick Two.
I had a blast combining my love of knitting with design.
