What's one way for everyone in a company named Bluecore to have personalized and one of a kind company t-shirts? Well we dyed them ourselves! With indigo!
Inspired by astronaut suits and space shuttles, while under heavy influence of science fiction... Mostly science fiction... I declassify my top secret project, the S.A.C.K. Space Adventurer Carry Kit.
Inspired by Kintsugi, let's embrace the damage we've already dealt to our planet, and take a positive approach to our energy crisis. The fractures on this globe, like the environmental degradation don't represent the end but rather a turning point in our history; and the golden repair lines don't aim to hide but rather beautify the cracks. “The world breaks everyone, then some become strong at the broken places.” –Ernest Hemingway
Don't feed the Rat Race
New Yorkers don’t break for lunch, they break their backs and social plans – but they don’t break for lunch. We’ve become accustomed to a city that demands new content every hour, and careers that offer paid time “ off.” We bring sad leftovers or buy pre-packaged meals with questionable quotation marks around “cheese-food” and “meat-imitation flavor.” Our lunches are as unbalanced, unwholesome, and unsuitable as our working lives in this hectic city.
A cheese pizza slice, symbolic of everything that’s corrupt and convenient in our daily lives, fits easily in the breast pocket of every over-worked New Yorker. The easiest things to carry are often the most destructive.
Don't feed the Rat Race was a project created for a group show during New York Design Week 2015, the custom tailored shirts had the honor of being window display pieces. I mean if pizza doesn't entice passersby, nothing else will.
Couldn't have done this without Daniel and Lisa. And my alluring models Erica and Woody!

The “Fold Gold” pretzel project was a side project I decided to embark on when my friends from Toronto asked me to send them something uniquely New York City. In all honesty, I’m not sure the pretzel is very unique. But these stale pieces of dough that are cured out in New York’s exhaust sure caught my eye. Inspired by the New York pretzel, and Rold Gold’s 16oz bags of pretzel thins; I present my inedible golden pretzels.
Here are some extra illustrations that were proposed and rejected for the "Fido Health Center". Some more obviously declined than others.
When I lived in San Francisco, my mother would always warn me of the earthquakes and urge me to move to another city, thus the inspiration of the book <Rubble>.
When you're riding your bike and end up with a flat tire, the next best thing to do is to go home and illustrate different types of bicycles.
Bring home the christmas tree
A book highlighting the lack of tolerance between motorists and pedal cyclists.
A series of eleven promotional posters were designed for the Academy of Art University’s Wellness Week. Branding, identity, and logo design were taken into account. The posters come in three sizes and appeared across the campus as wild postings and were featured on the campus-wide television network.
Arlo the elephant
Arlo the elephant started out as a fun little side project with Karisa while in college, illustrating a young elephant discovering the world.
I'm not trying to be pushy or anything but you should really buy the books, or at least a plush toy...
