"Mt Fuji" was my project for Creative Ideation at Art Center. I designed it as a platforming videogame, where the player plays a Japanese scientist who must climb a massive alien structure growing out from the peak of Mt Fuji, Japan, up towards the outer atmosphere. He is wearing the Climber Suit, a solar paneled motorized power suit. The player can choose to climb the Sun Route, where he can take full advantage of the solar powered Climber Suit's power to make daring jumps and grabs, or take the Shadow Route, where he will have less of the power advantages of the suit, but will take a grippier, safer route in the shadows. I tried to give the project a Japanese design aesthetic. Hope you like it!

This was a self promotion project for my Creative Ideation class. We had to find a pattern breaking way (as in not a business card) to promote ourselves. I wanted to promote myself as a "Futurist," and so I had to come up with a way to show people the future. I designed a clock where technology gets more and more advanced along with time. Starting in the year 2011 at the 1 o'clock position, with plain boring clock face, things progressively get more and more advanced as time goes on, progressing to the gears of current automatic watches around 2040 (4 o'clock), to mechanized swingarm business around 2300 (8 o'clock), all the way to a laser powered crystal focused "infinite" future at the 12 o'clock position. My name and website are on the hands of the clock, which along with the printed face, I set into a real working clock. In concept, I am "pointing you to the future." ;)

This was a poster I did for Creative Ideation that had to advertise Los Angeles in some unconventional way. I chose to highlight the people of LA's uniqueness, and how people here have been and will always be unique. The car culture here is a great example of this, and within that, Hot Rod culture is the epitomy of "Unique." A hotrod of yesterday, and a hotrod of tomorrow....

This was my final print for a screen printing class at SMC. I first sketched a full size illustration of the tiger. I then overlayed the drawing with frosted mylar and painted what would be each burn with black acrylic, and then burned each piece of painted mylar to different screens. Finally, I mixed three colors for each layer. I made 7 prints and 1 shirt.

This is my application project to Art Center College of Design's Entertainment Design program. It is a re-imagining if Ian Fleming's children's novel "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." It takes place in the year 2070 in Nigeria, Africa. I covered the design areas of CHARACTERS, PROPS, VEHICLES, and ENVIRONMENTS. The project could theoretically be used for a film (animated or live action), a video game, or Television. Feel free to comment, hope you like it!
The Nigerian native Commander Pott is the protagonist of the story. He is an inventor, mechanic, loving husband of Mimsie, and caring father of Jeremy and Jemima. With his hard work and inventiveness, he transforms Chitty Chitty Bang Bang from a junkyard junker to a sparkling beauty the Pott family can be proud of.
Mimsie is the tattoo artist mother of Jeremy and Jemima and wife of Cmdr Pott. She is sexy and creative and not affraid of anything. Especially needles, as she has ink from some of the best the future world of tattoo artists has to offer, including Horiyoshi V. If you get that one, good job
