Artist, Designer, MADMAN

ARTIST

Ive always been the one to want to create. In fine art I never really found a happy medium or technique. I like to constantly use something the “wrong” way to create a visual experience that is completely different to what i’ve seen before. Anyway I can express my ideas visually if its drawing, painting or sculpture, the out come will be original and thought evoking.

DESIGNER

Seeing the potential in making a living at creating and telling a visual story i began to learn about design and its many applications. From print, to web design and even in to video production and motion graphics. The principles apply to all the mediums, its learning the process and applying the right touches to tell the story.

MAD MAN

I like to be told I cant, thats the wrong way, that wont work. Theres no better motivation and driving force of knowing that the cards are stacked against my ideas or outlook, and then prevailing and showing, that hey theres more than one path through this landscape. I think out side the box. I take the projects that scare the rest of you and make it happen.

"Have no fear of perfection,
You'll NEVER reach it."

SALVADOR DALI

Skills to pay the bills

Design

Design

Visually telling a story and creating an experience from pixels or paint. The concept the balance and composition are all the foundation for a solid final design and campaign.

Photography

Photography

The light the shadows the angle and timing. Capturing the world in the view finder through the glass of a camera, to stop time in an instant.

Video Production

Video Production

A moving composition sometimes is the only way to fully tell the story. Literally bringing an idea to "LIFE" through motion and design is a fulfilling experience. With the right lighting, pace, audio and imagery combined the ability to emote an emotion though the process is amazing.

Branding

Branding

Standing out in the watered down, re hashed, reused and over done visual land scape is a must in todays world or marketing and sales. Stand out! Be seen, and be unique. Lets build your brand.

The Ramblings of a Mad Man

A Trip to the Palace. A visit to the Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue.

I have been talking with Jason Flatt from the Friends to the Forlorn for a few months now about coming out to the palace and getting some shots of all the pups.

  Finally the time was rite and we could both make it happen. I went to the “PALACE” and met a bunch of the Pitbulls that Jason has rescued. I got to see the facilities and some of the day to day activities. It was absolutely overwhelming. Other than the fact that the dogs were SO HAPPY and excited to see someone new there, the very first thing i noticed was the smell….or should i say the lack there of. 30 or so dogs, you would expect the hint of dog in the air. NOTHING! The place is so immaculately well kept, and an amazing site to see. After meeting a few of the dogs…i looked at Jason and said…”SO HEY, BRING OUT THE SQUIGGS!” hahahaha this little rocket of energy, Mr. Squiggy Fisher stole my heart many months back. He has so much character and personality, its hard to not fall in love with him immediately. IMG_9985IMG_9977           Jason and i then hoped in the van and went to Fulton Animal Control to pickup 2 pups and to get them ready to place them in their foster homes. The trip to the pound was eye opening for sure. You read about it, you even see pictures and maybe a video or two about it…but nothing…NOTHING prepares you for walking down through the pound, seeing Pit after pit after pit for a solid 50 yards, 2,3,4 to a pin all with different stories…all to easily thrown out.

 

Im looking forward to the next few weeks of working with Jason and the rescue and chopping up some video and making some good things happen….if it helps one dog find a forever home, it’ll alllllll be worth it.

 

See ya soon Forlorn Crew, i cant wait.

Shot and Created for Rob Zombie’s “Epic Fan Horror Video!” contest, I took a dark horror inspired spin to the concept. Emphatic gives the audience an open window view of the creative process, inside the mind of a creative. This can be a very uneasy place at times. Emphatic Poster

 

 

I. Visualize: concept and seek the inspiration to begin.

 

 

II. Create: Build your foundation, construct your framework, live within your creation.

 

 

III. Infect: Seek out the flaws and lose the dead ends. Hold your creation high for all to see, shine bright among the darkness. Infect the world with your influence.

Powerman 5000 Unofficial Lyric Video

Read More
Ive been wanting to do some music video work for the past year or so. I thought i would get my feet wet with a few Lyric Videos and see what the consensus was on them. I really enjoyed working on this piece, layout the type and tweaking the different animations across the timeline.
