Font Aid V: Made For Japan

Font Aid V: Made For Japan


Back in March I designed three glyphs for Font Aid V: Made For Japan. The goal of the project is to raise funds to expedite relief efforts after the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Nearly 300 contributors from 45 countries sent in over 500 glyphs in a single week. Several months after the project was initiated, Font Aid V: Made For Japan is now available online!


The font is being be sold for $20US and will be available through Ascender Fonts,, Linotype, Veer, and MyFonts.


Please support this worthy cause! Domo arigato! どうもありがとう

07/30/10 Redesign


Let's face it. It was time for a fix yourself a nice, tall, cool cocktail and have a look around.


While you were at the beach getting a nice tan, I was slaving away on my summer project! I like my old site, but six years is a long time in terms of the internet. Technology changes quickly. Computers are faster, screens are larger and browsers are better. I've tried to take adavantage of these things so I hope you will enjoy the new design.


I've included a lot of work that's never been posted before. Beyond the illustration and design, I've added a miscellaneous section featuring more experimental things like doodles, photos, paintings and animations. Down the road I'll be setting up a shop too. I'll be trying to update things and add new work on a regular basis....promise. Cheers :)

Kitsune Noir, Magic: The Designing Contest

Takashi Murakami card


Kitsune Noir, a design blog that I visit every day for inspiration, had an interesting contest back in March:


"Idea: Make a deck of Magic: The Gathering cards based around current and classic designers....The reader should design a Magic: The Gathering card for your favorite artist/designer/architect. "


For those of you not nerdy enough to be familiar with Magic: The Gathering, it was a fantasy card based game that was very popular during the 90's.


I chose Japanese pop artist, Takashi Murakami as the subject of my card. Illustrated in his style. My entry didn't win but Bobby Solomon (the blog owner) was kind enough to include mine as one of his favorites, as it made him laugh! Mission accomplished.

Sore & Steal Artwork

Sore and Steal


I recently designed the cover art for the new recording from the ambient, experimental group Sore & Steal.


"Many Moons A Go-Go" is the long forgotten album recorded by Sore & Steal. The sessions were recorded 10 years ago. After being remixed several times, these pieces are being released for the first time. Sore is Ian Masters on saw (ex-Pale Saints. Spoonfed Hybrid, ESP Summer, Oneironaut, Wing Disk, Ashioto, Two Sun Tears) and Steal is David Rothon from The Redlands Palomino Company on Steel Guitar.


The album is available as a free digital download at:
