So I'll be taking over Minimal Zine's Instagram for the week. It's going to be all architecture & geometric shots with a new color theme each day. Take a look & follow along because it's going to be pretty rad!
So earlier this month I wrote a guest post for my friends The Explorationists about moving to LA, starting over & facing your fears. This was the first time I took a shot at writing, usually I prefer to just have the visuals speak for themselves, but the whole process was really satisfying. Not to mention the great feedback! So I hope you enjoy it & feel free to tell me what you think.
Really pumped to curate the Griffith Park neighborhood for On The Grid Los Angeles. On The Grid is a online travel guide made by designers for designerly people. It's one of the most beautifully designed sites I've seen in a while. Go check out their site & look through the ever growing list of neighborhoods across the world. And look out for the Griffith Park guide coming out January 15th. It's going to be killer!
I'm not ready to let summer go! So as a last ode to summerness enjoy these 5 free iPhone & desktop wallpapers in the SHOP. Go updating your devices with a psychedelic pattern & enjoy the last few weeks of summer my friends.
The first batch of kaleidoscope stickers are in & are prefect for sticker bombing things (your unsuspecting friends, ugly buildings, or anything for that matter). Now comes the fun part. Packaging design & branding & soon they will be up in the shop!
A couple weeks ago I packed up all my things & moved across country to the Golden State. A total of some 2,800+ miles over 6 days from Greenville > New Orleans > Austin > Marfa > Albuquerque > Phoenix > LA. It was one of the most amazing & daunting road trips I've ever taken in my life because I stubbornly decided to make the drive by myself! But broke up the trip with stops to see friends & family along the way & of course some beautiful sights like White Sands, Marfa, Montezuma's Castle & the Prada art instillation.
The full photo story is on VSCO Journal but here's a couple highlights.
About a year ago I joined Elle Luna's 100 Day Project on Instagram & decided to start making geometric patterns. It ended up being such an amazing outlet that I turned those patterns into framed prints, sold the rights to one & even started a few collaborations with other designers. So many good things resulted out of that last 100 Day Project that I decided join in again for round 2.
Yesterday, April 6th, was the beginning of the second 100 Day Project where Elle Luna teamed up with The Great Discontent. So join in, it's not to late!
This time around I'm going to be making Metaphorical Collaged GIF's. So we'll see where this goes! Good luck & let me know what you end up making.
I recently took a solo road trip up the West coast & was blown away by the beauty, architecture & colors that surrounded me from LA > Big Sur > SF > Portland > Seattle. Specifically in SoCal/LA, every day held a new adventure. Traveling solo was such an amazing experience too, it opened me up to the journey that came my way, something I've never quite experienced when traveling with a friend.
Here are some of my favorite shots.

Today is the day, the launching of my online shop!
Thank you for such a positive response to my 100 Pattern Collage Series & encouragement from friends & family. Because of you I realized that I needed to turn these designs into goods to share. So after a lot of hard work & a new collection of acquired power tools I present to you some selected prints & postcards.
Enjoy & stay rad.
