Animated Ink

They're probably not too far off in the future, right? Ever since Rob Banks over at East River Tattoo stamped a New England lighthouse scene onto my forearm last May, I've been itching to bring it alive in After Effects. This is probably the most time or detail I've put into an illustration/animation before (Illustrator feels like a far distant beast from my college studio days)... I started out in November but promptly forgot about it for a bit while making this site. Many little bits and pieces to this one scattering the post. Oh, and apologies for the for-sure-stuttering that this page probably has for those of you with slower internet connections...working on improvements!

Huge albums of the year

Huge Mixtape is a chatroom that I'm a part of at Huge where a small group of music-enthusiasts share tunes all day everyday. A few days before the end of the year, José Gasparian (@zefelipe) and I had the idea to create a site that wraps up our favorite releases of the year. Fast forward a few days and we had created (José mostly leading the design, myself handling most of the code) a site that expanded to collect album choices from Huge employees around the world in an office-wide poll. The site immediately took off, accumulating upwards of 35,000 page views and making its way to both the #1 & #2 spots of Muzli. Check out the site at mixtape.hugeinc.com.

Bay area #3

Trip number three to visit the homies (Ian & Bree) out West! Coming back to the colder East coast afterwards is a little harder each flight. This visit included a drive down to the many dope coast spots of Big Sur, as well as north of San Francisco to hike around Mount Tam. I didn't prepare well and brought a camera that died at the start of day two, but Ian was a good enough friend to let me borrow his for the rest of the trip 🙏. Music credits in this highlights video to the ever-addicting Twin Peaks.

One Second * Everyday

For the first 365 days after graduating from Penn State, I shot one second of footage. Each second represents a visual diary entry of the day, allowing me to remember with fairly high detail my first year out of school (and also serving as nice cinematography practice!). The final video spans Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York, California, Utah, New Zealand, & the Turks/Caicos Islands. Check out the video alongside a years worth of photos and gifs at seconds.cblls.com.

Self-E-Wear @ F5

Self-E-Wear: the only VR headset with the power to show you how cool you look wearing a VR headset. Equal parts interactive art piece, futurist dance party, and waiting in line at Space Mountain. Designed and built from scratch, the team at Dark Igloo debuted it at F5 Fest at Terminal 5 in '15 to huge smiles and several noise violations. No one quite knew what to make of The Future.

Nrml Mag

Normal sets out in exploration of the paranormal through the lenses of three characters: (1) Enter the life of Guy Kraus, our telepathic shut-out who entered a discovery of Awful that did not immediately take upon itself an unfortunate nature. Or read an exclusive interview with (2) Tommy Scarponi, a completely average college student with the ability to control gravity. End it all with (3), Yourself– reveal your future and inner being through the art of tarot. Senior year final design project, under Lanny Sommese.
