Rare Batch

I'm finally graduating! As a fifth year senior, we create a thesis idea around which we design a gallery installation for the public. After an extensive research process, I created Rare Batch Brewing Collaborative to express my love for creative process. I'll probably create a separate project page with more in-depth info, but for now I thought I would post the summary text and a few photos. Enjoy!

"Experimentation with creativity and process are at the core of our passion for making beer, and so are you. Rare Batch is a working brewery who loves to put a twist on the craft brewing trend when you take home a batch with your own name on it. Forget the rules in the brew book! We set thew stage for the DIY minded who want to experiment, learn and play. At Rare Batch, you're the brewer. And better yet, your recipe can be voted into production and distribution as a seasonal release. Come hang at Rare Batch and enjoy some suds from the house or sign up to brew your own under the guidance of our experts."

Stuff.

Well howdy! If ya'll haven't seen my Instajam, it's a good place to look for new projects that I haven't had time to post on the site. There's lots to come when I have the time. Happy trails!

I recently completed a bookshelf I built using a mahogany stain and white paint

One of the typeface versions I recently cooked up from scratch

As always, I'm making screen-prints every couple of weeks. Here are two among about seven new ones.
I'll photograph and post more later when there's time!

I also made some happy hour illustrations some weeks ago. Large sword or tiny glass?!

Howdy!

I've designed TONZ of new work this Summer / Fall and simply need to find the time to photograph everything and update the site! Here's a little snippet of the latest screenprint I threw together among a handful of others. Here's to more time this Holiday Season!

Summer came and went

Well, for those of you who come across this page once in a while, you may have stopped because it's been so long since I've posted. This Summer has been filled with all sorts of exciting new work that I hope to share later this year. I've spent many hours having fun with the team at LPK this Summer along with a handful of freelance projects and artful pursuits. A few months ago, I had a fairly gruesome accident while re-purposing some antique furniture. I love(d) to woodwork and sometimes disassemble old tables to build things like bookshelves and desks that feature unique patterns where hardware and fittings were once attached with inconsistent finishes and such. I lost part of a finger while causing some other damage to my paws and it stunted my plans to spend my spare time backpacking all Summer. But it didn't stop me from designing! I've put in a great effort these last few months on some really awesome projects with the team at LPK. I was recently awarded in the Above the Fold Student Web Design Competition and did a little collab with the folks at LEAPframe as they continue to promote the fantastic things ArtWorks is doing for Cincinnati. My senior year has just begun, leaving me short on spare time as we head into Autumn, but I plan to chip away at collecting new projects to share. I've also been re-kindling my love and involvement in printmaking. Have a look at this screen-print I made last week to be on display during Final Friday this month at Rock Paper Scissors. Until then, happy trails!


New Work

I've been working on a few new projects, including this neat little lady. I'll post a lot more images soon, including some process shots. Things are wrapping up nicely as the semester comes to a close and I can't wait to join the team this Summer as an intern at lpk, a really great company here in Cincinnati.
 
As usual, there are some goodies I need to post and I've really been wanting to make some new screen-prints. If only I wasn't busy bottling home-brews and soaking up this amazing weather. New stuff soon - until then!

Sprheng!

Spring is almost here!! To celebrate, I took a break to do some backpacking in one of my favorite forests. Before I knew it, I was done fryin' flapjacks over the fire and back home with a lengthy to do list between class, work and extra projects. There are several I'm waiting for time to make presentable and publish. This is going to be a great Summer and I'm looking forward to the time to enjoy it. Until then, cheers!

Annual Show

Well it's once again time for the annual juried student exhibition! I was asked to design the poster this year for a call to entries and show. I'll post more photos once we have it printed. My plate has a heaping pile of life on it right now, but there really are some great things in the works. Photos will trickle in during the weeks to come. Until then, happy trails!
