  • Untitled Drawings


These drawings are part of an ongoing series. Intentionally awkward and “anti-compositional”, they attempt to capture the beauty that can happen when legibility and form are compromised in favor of expression. These particular drawings were done specifically for this show. They borrow and aim to share wisdom from two of my favorite thinkers, Carl Sagan and Albert Einstein. I like these sentiments from them about life and existence and hope that others enjoy them as well.


After dabbling a bit in photography, writing, fine art, music, and audio, I went back to school and graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2005 with a BFA in Graphic Design. Since then, I’ve made a living as an interactive designer for clients such as Oprah Winfrey, Burger King, Craftsman, DieHard, Butterball, and Motorola. Outside of work, I continue to investigate art and design through self-driven explorations and freelance projects for various art and music related events and organizations. I spend far too much time staring at a backlit screen and am convinced that, in addition to suffering from carpal tunnel, I will be blind by the age of fifty. And hopefully still dabbling.
