New works to share!

Just posted a bunch of new stuff to the danklife portfolio and Behance, as Dr. Brule says, "Check it out!"

New Work in the Wild: Maui Brewing

Being big fans of Hawaii how could we say no to doing some product renders for Maui Brewing? I simply can't. The fine folks at The Butler Bros reached out and asked if I could do some renders of their brand redesign and I jumped at the chance. Check out the full project here.

More Animations on Behance

Posted some new animations of before and afters on Behance. Have some Nike Swim work and Nike Football / Soccer to check out. Enjoy!

New Work In The Wild: adidas Samoa

Did some CGI set building for the fine folks at Kamp Grizzly the other week and it looks like adidas relased them out into the wild. Some fun, clean and simple sets.

Excerpted from How to Fly a Horse

Learning to say, "No" is probably the hardest thing to do in business and art. Here is some more reading up to help us all with that.

Time is the raw material of creation. Wipe away the magic and myth of creating and all that remains is work: the work of becoming expert through study and practice, the work of finding solutions to problems and problems with those solutions, the work of trial and error, the work of thinking and perfecting, the work of creating. Creating consumes. It is all day, every day. It knows neither weekends nor vacations. It is not when we feel like it. It is habit, compulsion, obsession, vocation. The common thread that links creators is how they spend their time. No matter what you read, no matter what they claim, nearly all creators spend nearly all their time on the work of creation. There are few overnight successes and many up-all-night successes.
Saying “no” has more creative power than ideas, insights and talent combined. No guards time, the thread from which we weave our creations. The math of time is simple: you have less than you think and need more than you know. We are not taught to say “no.” We are taught not to say “no.” “No” is rude. “No” is a rebuff, a rebuttal, a minor act of verbal violence. “No” is for drugs and strangers with candy.

New Work for ConocoPhillips

The talented photographer Jamie Kripke brought me on board to help with some background rebuilds for a project documenting the new look of gas stations for Conoco Phillips. Really had to dig deep to build all these up. Lots going on here in the before and afters. Check them out on Behance or in the portfolio section here
