John Conway paints dinosaurs unlike any you’ve ever seen.

(Also pterosaurs, which I just learned about and which are super cool.)

More photos from Monday’s Full Moon Jam are filtering in— huge thanks to the photographers who attend the Jams and share their skills with us! The shots above are by Milosh Kosanovich and by Ricardo Cervantes.

You know you’ve arrived as a designer/illustrator when your work is ripped off wholesale by a theatre company in India. This company yanked my illustration and title treatment from a 2012 production of Schweyk in the Second World War, then slapped their info on top of it. Nicely done, dudes.

I did reach out to the company responsible, and, to his credit, the director responded immediately in a very apologetic and sincere manner. We’re working it out.

I’m still shocked— while my ideas and projects have been heavily “riffed” on, bordering on outright theft, this is the first time I’ve actually come across one of my projects floating around in the wilds of the Internet, uncredited. Crazy.

Today at work I made an adorable moon.
Yesterday after work I spun fire under the full moon.

11x17 poster I designed for The Artistic Home's upcoming production. Thanks for being so adventurous with me, guys!

Ohmygod. This is a video that David of Umbrella Cafe put together of my burn from Tuesday— showing both my fans and my levi-wand. It makes me look so much cooler than I am. Extremely grateful.

My fire levi-wand burn from Pratt Beach last night. It’s really weird spinning with no music, as I tend to take my movement cues from whatever’s playing, but it was a blast to spend such a beautiful night on a beach spinning fire with a lovely group of performers.

This has been a many-faceted project with tons of applications and I’ll share more of them later, but we just got some images of the CTA stuff in-situation and I’m stoked enough to post ‘em.

Chicago Fringe Festival 2014— the brief was to do more to show “what Fringe is”, which is a really tall order so I made a big, weird kaleidoscopic mandala using photos from past Fringe productions. CTA 2-sheet at top; train takeover (!!) including ceiling poster, wall poster, and car cards.

I designed every web and print piece for the Festival except for the interior of the program and two of the on-site pieces of signage, and am pretty pleased with the final result. Stoked to share the rest of them as they come in.

I met Precious during my time at UNL— she was roller-skating around campus and was tiny and full of energy and larger than life. So proud of and excited by everything she has become and accomplished.
Excerpt:
redefiningrealness:

I did a series of photo shoots with my dear friend Kandice, exploring connections between my identity and the land, reborn and baptized as something other than a gay man in drag; as a queer creature of fluid gender. After the first shoot, I was in neither my disheveled confused boy persona nor my glossy big-hair campy drag costume. I was just me, a feminine but strong figure, a harlequin in a sense, embodying so many worlds and identities. I finally saw what I looked like when I was truly focused, energetically at peace, and connected to myself internally and externally. After my time back here, I knew I would be able to return to Chicago with a brand new clarity of purpose.

Silly photo-manipulation (of the top image) and title treatment for Abraham Werewolf's upcoming Fight Night scene.

Levi-wand mastery from Ehrlich Ocampo.

Big swells of sound get me every time. Combine that with brass, and I’m done for. (Horns kick in around 1:00).

Santtu Mustonen makes beautiful patterns and shapes, but the best aspect about the site is the loading gif between projects.
