OLESKINE, the venerable Italian Notebook and Sketchbook maker asked me to create artwork for a very special, limited edition book.

Commemorating their MOLESKINE's vision for their 2013 SALONS SERIES ( #MSALONS ), this GOLD FOIL & EMBOSSED BOOK is something I've always dreamed of designing. It was a pleasure to collaborate with such a hallowed and timeless brand. The custom GEOCALLIGRAPHIC artwork references "Illuminated Manuscripts" as well as "Art Deco" motifs. Keep an eye out for much more coming soon ! TRUST ME - #WEOUTHERE #DOINGTHANGS !!! ^_~ !!!

prattfolio



lumni on the rise... As part of my ALMA MATER's ( PRATT ) 125th ANNIVERSARY, they selected their top 40 recent ALUMNI and named me as one of their "Rising Stars."

I'm amongst some amazing and inspiring company in the pages of this latest PRATTFOLIO. Some fellow PRATT LUMINARIES include my friend SWOON and the infamous JEREMY SCOTT.

I was doubly honored when PRATT asked me to DESIGN THE COVER of this commemorative edition of the PRATTFOLIO. I'm just so thankful and proud to be a part of such a great institution and to be a part of its rich legacy and heritage.


Below is the artwork entitled SPHERIC OBRA which was chosen as the cover for this special 125th Anniversary edition of the PRATTFOLIO. My thanks to Charlotte and the entire Prattfolio team who made this all possible.

kenzo paris





ENZO PARIS as seen through a Jungle Prism. I had the honor of working with Kenzo Digital and an amazing team of creatives to craft a Paris Fashion Week runway show as never before seen.

Celebrating famed fashion house KENZO's vision for their 2013 S/S Womenswear Collection, we worked closely with the designers at the helm of brand ( Carol Lim & Humberto Leon ) to create an experience that would immerse the audience in the lush & wild textures and colors of the KENZO line. My sincere thanks to Scott, Toby, Kenzo and the entire team who worked tirelessly to make this happen. Welcome to the JUNGLE!

It was a dream and an honor to design works which spoke directly to the heritage of KENZO TAKADA'S Iconic brand, as well as to the vibrance of the current collection.

audemars piguet


Design, photography, sound and film come together for a stellar Royal Oak 40th Anniversary worldwide exhibition. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Audemars Piguet's iconic timepiece Royal Oak, the world's first ever luxury sports timepiece which sparked a complete paradigm shift in the watch industry, the Swiss Manufacture from Le Brassus in the Vallée de Joux has put together a unique, ephemeral exhibition.

I had the pleasure of being invited to design some printed pieces for AUDEMARS PIGUET'S Royal Oak 40th Anniversary Exhibition. Anyone with but a cursory interest in horological excellence understands the significance of the AP house. They are the last remaining family owned and run brand of all the world's luxury watchmakers. It was a pleasure to work with the AUDEMARS Team as well as the talented artists who participated in this event and create works that speak to the heritage and craft of watchmaking.

My sincere thanks to everyone who made this project possible, to the Audemars Piguet family for having me involved in this amazing exhibition and of course, to one Amigo in particular for making this all happen! Saludos!

Check the images below for a sampling of some of the work and watch the video for an overview of the exhibition!

Like peering into the center of an atom, these exploded views of an Audemars Piguet Complication show just how much skill and craftwork go into every piece they make..

becks wild




ECK'S goes beyond labels and let's the art do the talking. BECK'S invited me to collaborate on a new kind of ARTISTRY program. I had the pleasure of working with some amazing folks from across the world and have had the opportunity to bring some of my artwork to the STREETS OF NEW YORK. I never imagined my artwork would tower over the borough of BROOKLYN as a 4-STORY tall mural emblazoned across a building.

Whether in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, The Lower East Side, or the streets of SOHO, keep your eyes to the walls and see if you can spot the visual remnants of this collaboration.

in thy light




spectre of what is to come. A premonition for the dawning of a new age. Let this offering stand as visual record of something much greater than the reality from which it's born. "The pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Parmenides taught that the only things that are real are things which never change... and the pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Heraclitus taught that everything changes. If you superimpose their two views, you get this result: Nothing is real."

If nothing is real, then I am but a story being spoken into existence... these images the illumination to those words.

Better late than never ever... Here's a snap of a Artist Series Tee I created for NPR. I was fortunate enough to provide this BKLYN CALLIGRAPHIC design for the NPR show, STATE OF THE REUNION.

All proceeds from this Tee go to Charity. Specifically, the Urban Word NYC charity. Urban Word NYC's award-winning programs utilize the written and spoken word to develop critical thinking skills and leadership in youth from across NYC.

There's only a few left. Get Yours Here! And help a worthy Charity ^_^ : ROPEADOPE STORE

earnest endeavours


Earnest : serious in intention, purpose, or effort.
Endeavour : to exert oneself to do or effect something; strive.
This is the birth of Something New : This is EARNEST ENDEAVOURS™

This has been over a year in the making... Beginning as an idea formulated by UK based friends, Terence Teh, Tom McCarthy, Alex Stevenson, Earnest Endeavours was just as its namesake suggests, an honest effort to create something new in a flailing and changing music industry.

I was honored when I was approached to partner in this endeavour and become the Visual Voice for the entire label. What has transpired over the course of the last yearis a solidifying of our collective interests and tastes. As true music aficionados with a penchant for the packaging and paraphernalia that for so long helped to define the music industry what we've endeavoured to do is to bring back the aspect of the "Artifact" to the music industry.

With our first release we proudly present BBRAVO. With a flair for the vocoder and a genuine "Cali-Vibe" it's hard not to want to drop-the-top on the whip and cruise into the sunset... Steady Mobbin'. Scroll down for a primer of what EARNEST ENDEAVOURS is all about !




◥ For more information on the label please visit : EARNESTENDEAVOURS.com
◥ Visit our SOUNDCLOUD to preview the BBRAVO EP : EE SOUNDCLOUD
◥ Please Support and Purchase the digital release on ITUNES : BBRAVO EP on ITUNES

The VINYL you see above is now available for purchase in Finer Record Shops and Boutiques around the world.




Keep watch as we're prepping for a massive 2012. Stay tuned for much much more.
