SAVE YOURSELF SOME GOOGLING
For more than a decade, I have been applying my strengths toward educational, political, cultural, and entrepreneurial missions — all of which revolve around building and organizing communities and cultures. I am always happy to discuss the role community plays in these missions.
The short-version: authentic community is self-perpetuating, and the single biggest influence on people... and mostly not online.
SOME QUOTES AND OPINIONS
DRAW, CAPTURE, 3d PRINT, LEDs & LASERCUTS
A Mighty keychain. Hand drawn "mighty" scanned in Adobe Capture on ipad, tweaked in Illustrator, exported as SVG to Tinkercad, added background ovals with thinning profiles. Black metal 3d print with Shapeways.
A MightyWriter keychain. Hand drawn "WRITER" (check the different "R"s) scanned in Adobe Capture on ipad, tweaked in Illustrator, exported as SVG to Tinkercad, added background and ring hoop. Metal 3d print at Shapeways.
Trust the keychain. Same "Trust" digital file, tweaked to make pendant via Adobe Draw, exported as SVG from Illustrator, opened in Tinkercad to export to Shapeways for 3d print in metal.
Trust Happy Day. Hand lettered "Trust" and hearts, "happy day" from a label maker, all digitized and tweaked with Adobe Capture and Draw on ipad, and layered up in Photoshop, then printed on paper from Finerworks.
Elseplace cover design. For Laurie Filipelli's first book of poems Elseplace (published by Brooklyn Arts Press), I designed a cover layering elements of the book text with a drawing from fellow Austinite and friend Alejandra Almuelle.
Girl Paper Stone cover design. For Laurie Filipelli's second book of poems published by Black Lawrence press, I created some "Tarot" like cards for Laurie to use during public readings, Adobe Captured them, assembled mostly in Draw and then finished in Illustrator with a background image I captured of a utility box.
Literary Women in Action A hand-drawn, Adobe Capture and Illustrator tweaked logo for a fine set of literary women who are organizing and politicking and getting good things done.
You Me Rainbow Just a colorful giftable rainbow to remind you why we do this thing.
DOI! Bunny. Another little Adobe Capture and Draw illustration for the instagramz to change up and amp up colors from an Eliana bead creation. (Yaay, perler beads and 7 yr olds.)
LOVING RO<3OT loves you. A couple of layered drawings and captures in this one. Text is processed from a picture of a code comment, pixelated in Photoshop, digitized in Capture, tweaked in Illustrator, all compiled in Photoshop.
Secret Police. It is always fun to add some Capture/Draw tweaked label-maker "secret police" text to a likewise Capture-scanned doodle from my then 4 year-old daughter.
Hoppy Mother's Day. A variation of an original Buntitia 3d print, only with a sign in her hand. This image was created by Capture-scanning the printed 3d model and tweaking in Illustator for a Mother's Day card.
Buntitia Backpacker. A smaller 3d printed version of Buntitia with an integral hoop for hanging on a backpack, as seen here.
I Bunny You. A 3d metal print from Shapeways of a pendant co-designed with my daughter as a birthday gift for her fellow bunny-loving friend.
