Portfolio Creative Staffing’s Summer 2009, Columbus Creative Events Calendars are out! The initial ideals of inspiration came from the late 60's, early 70's optical & psychedelic art movement, reflections to the radiance of summer, the use of hexagons & abstract sun flare elements, warm & intense color palettes, assimilating some of my personal photographic directions taken over the past years around the same seasons in Ohio, and incorporating a high gloss varnish spot with overall matte finish. This has been one of the most unique and challenging projects I have worked on to date! It has been a tremendous pleasure working on this quarterly calendar and once again many thanks to the Portfolio Creative Staffing for asking me to be a part of this project! And a very special thanks to Patrick Griffin at Canada Type for creating such a beautifully luxurious font!

Maeror Tri • Yearning for the Secret(s) of Nature

EE tapes out of Belgium re-releases the visceral and meditative sounds of drone legends Maeror Tri, which are now the beloved Troum and 1000schoen. This being the second limited release of the album, it was a pleasure to create the visuals for this legendary act I have admired for quite some time!

Gathering Blue with Aidan Baker

I have been fortunate enough this past year to work on a collaborative release with the very prolific Canadian musician and writer known as Aidan Baker. Aidan supplies us with a very heartfelt and enchanting release on Equation Records titled Gathering Blue. This album was pressed in three extremely limited editions of which most are already sold out. But if you look around hard enough on the web, there are still some copies floating around. Seems this might already even be a collectors item for some!
