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.
A code experiment counting down from 9 to 0 using the same 10 dots to create each digit (some numbers fudge this a bit by overlaying dots). I built this using mostly just css, with js being used to trigger class changes on keystrokes. Play around with the page by smashing around on your number keys: open countdown
My little ghost guy submission for 2016's Gif-o-ween, thrown by Animation Block Party and Giphy. The party called to "get spooky, scary, creepy, and kooky with your GIF-making". It wasn't among the winners, but hey what can ya do. 👻
Headlines screamed "GIPHY'S LOOP DREAMS EXHIBIT IS THE INTERNET IN PHYSICAL FORM" or "GIFS IRL WILL MAKE ALL YOUR MEMES COME TRUE". Lots of things were said, capital used, and gifs created. Dark Igloo / Giphy reached out to me to shoot photos and videos of both the private party and public launch of Loop Dreams, the world's first gif gallery in SoHo at 201 Mulberry featuring installations by 25 of Giphy's artists. Gif curation by Giphy, event branding and design by the homies at Dark Igloo.
ListenIn is a rebranding of a concept for a client that got abandoned a month or so into the build (budget reasons). It's a social listening app (all of the rage in 2016) that lets users broadcast or listen in (get it?) to their friend's and favorite artist's streams, just by signing in with a Spotify and/or Soundcloud account. Listeners are able to browse and follow their friend's profiles, as well as travel backwards through time to listen to past streams. I messed up sometime in the last year and accidentally deleted the redesign's source files, so everything here is screengrabbed from a prototype of the app hierarchy...holy-quality-loss-batman. Oh, and sorry for the NSFW old folks cover, was really feeling The Hotelier while making this (and still am).
Here lies everything not deserving of its own post, a whole mishmash of of looping things. Bunch of weird shit, honestly.
In July of '16, a few of my close friends from school and I flew into Colorado for a camping trip in the Rocky Mountains at Estes Park for the first run of a yearly adventure. Many miles were hiked and we got to see Boulder, The Lake of Glass, The Pool, Cub Lake, Nymph Lake, Lake Haiyaha, The Loch, and realistically a few other cool spots.
