FUN

Cville Love

The day the violence happened in my hometown of Charlottesville, I was in California.  That day, I sat down at my computer and made this logo for my city.

Days later, Van Yahres Tree Company bought 100 shirts and give them away on the Charlottesville mall.

One week later and a local teenager spent his own money to give away 300.  

To keep up with the demand, I opened an online store and mandated that 50% of all sales go to HEAL Charlottesville and Legal Aid Justice Center.

A month later and my logo had raised thousands of dollars. 

Hate came but we wore it away.

Art vs. Gun Violence

After the Parkland school shooting, I created artwork hoping to help.

On the day of March for Our Lives, Ad Age selected my design top pick and placed it over Times Square.

A tribute to Barack Obama

In 2007, Barack Obama called my grandmother to offer his condolences for my grandfather's passing.  I created this video in 2017 with a friend of mine as a way to say thanks.

Air Jean

During the 2018 NCAA Tournament, Sister Jean from Loyola Chicago became famous.  I decided to give her a logo.

Unfortunately, it got stolen a lot.

And sold a lot.

But at least Sister Jean got one.

Prison Postcards

My sister is an art teacher for a juvenile detention center.  I drew these motivational postcards for her students.

Each of these men faced prison

and made something from it.
