Back Story

Always A Good Idea

In college one evening I decided to ride over to a girl’s house to introduce myself instead of going home. I had previously hesitated to talk to her (out of shyness) — now she’s my wife. Today biking is a great place to get a workout, clear stress and get the synapses firing — often producing great inspiration.

Printing Winter

This design uses metallic silver as the base ink to help convey some of the reflective qualities of a fresh snow and printing on dark paper provides great opportunity to play with negative space and figure/ground relationships. I really wanted to combine clean geometric shapes of the bike and its rider with dot patterns for texture, and more organic illustration for the trees and snow accents.

Creating With The Next Generation

I love everything about design and am constantly noticing the small details in daily life — things that are great, and things that could be better. Growing up I spent most of my free time drawing, and art has been a constant in my life. Now with two kids, there is nothing I enjoy more than creating with them.
