Movie Poster

This is the movie poster i came up with for our poster assignment. I tried to give it a vague title and i based the look of the alien off of an old movie poster i had found.

One-Flag Design

This is my One-Flag design. Rather than come up with a flag that represented the people of the world coming together I came up with a flag for when robots take over the world. Its a possibility so with this flag I might get on their good side.

Chinese Takeout Box

Want to buy noodles from Bao-Bao. This is the box you get. :P

proposition 8

This image was created to accompany an editorial supporting gay marriage, focusing on the recent passing of Proposition 8 in California. The recent ballot measure outlawed previously legal same-sex marriages in the state.


This poster is for a French contemporary art fair held in Paris every year. The name comes from "Foire Internationale d'Art Contemporain" (fiac). I wanted to allude to Duchamp's urinal by using toilets as the background.

Modern Amusement AD

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

This image was inspired by the book, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. I wanted to capture the tragedgy of the American Indians and honor the victims of a culture that was lost to the greed and violence of my people.

From Wikipedia:
The Wounded Knee Massacre, previously known as The Battle at Wounded Knee Creek, was the last major armed conflict between the Oglala Lakota and the United States, subsequently described as a massacre by General Nelson A. Miles in a letter to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs.

This was my third investigation into illusion. Here I wanted to show the nature of the optical paradox. This was inspired by MC Escher, Shigeo Fukuda, Sandro del Prete, Jos De Mey, Rex Whistler, Octavio Ocampo, among many others from a book called "Master's of Deception."

This is my second study of art as an illusion. This work was inspired by artists such as Giuseppe Arcimboldo and Salvador Dali. I tried to merge animals and other objects into a human form. The person is underwater swimming. There are also many other 'things' happening in the drawing. Media used were colored pencil, india ink, and graphite.

This was my first investigation of art as an illusion. This piece is a progression series that tries to link two common ideas -- recycle for the good of the Earth/to save the Earth.
