KIND OF A BIG DEAL

I was kind of in shock the other day when I received a message on IG from Jeff Staple to ask if I was available to meet for a studio visit. If you don't know who Jeff is let me just say that he has been a source of inspiration to me ever since I realized what design was (Staple Design, Reed Space, etc.). I had the pleasure of hanging out with him today and was able to take notes from someone who has risked everything he has all for what he loves. I found out that we have a few things in common and it feels nice when someone you look up to shares similar interests and past success stories. Its funny you spend time working hard for moments like this and when they happen you think to yourself "okay now you have to do better" and that's pretty much how it goes, at least for me anyway.

STAYING FOCUSED

I have to admit these past few months I have been the worst at keeping this thing up to date with post but I promise you I have been very busy with all of the new transitions life has provided. Stay focused and keep pushing forward.

BACK FROM BERLIN

I made it back from Berlin in one piece and hit the ground running. Here is a recap of what happened while I was there. Sorry I do not have more pics. Warsteiner did an awesome job everything and I hope to be back someday to actually see Berlin (haha we were all busy painting the entire time).

GUERRERO GALLERY

Well today was the opening for the July group show at Guerrero Gallery here in San Francisco. It was an awesome turnout and I just want to say thank you to everyone who came out to support, I even had a few friends drive 3 hours just to come to the show and head back home (now that's love).

FREE THE DATA

Today I took part in a groundbreaking project that hits really close to home for me. I wont say too much as it is apart of a film that will be released soon and it will explain the topic better than I can. It has to do with cancer and family history. Being that my mother and godmother both had cancer I felt a necessity to take part of this project which included working closely with a scientist, director and eleven people who all carried a genetic BRAC mutation which can lead to cancer. For more info you can watch the documentary titled "In the Family" here Joanna Rudnick released based on women and men getting tested for the gene. The pictures below show the process and steps on how we (scientist and participants) took their gene data and integrated it with my designs and had each person fill in their cell within the piece.
