Written language and the abstraction it faces

Finally okayed the order this morning to begin the printing for my dissertation,
which nearly marks the end of a year long project: not sure what to do with my time now, perhaps start on my list of ideas for personal projects.

A more digestible written language.

Who doesn’t love a food pun? cut cookie dough letters to use as a title page and reverse image on my dissertation.

Good Goose Logo: Motion Sequence

A quick motion graphic personal project inspired by Rorschach ink blots.

The logo is a scanned linocut of the goodgoose logo, this is layered over two layers of the same footage (one reversed) to create a symmetrical and abstract pattern of ink in water. What do you see in the pattern?

Turner Classic Movies Presents: Adversary Season (Hypothetically)

Competing among my peers for an internship with TCM, I am to present A2 posters advertising a hypothetical movie season; Adversary Season being my choice. As a foundation for this, I will be rendering the faces of iconic adversaries. To keep you up to date with my progress, my initial sketches are below:
