Artist, Designer, MADMAN

ARTIST

Ive always been the one to want to create. In fine art I never really found a happy medium or technique. I like to constantly use something the “wrong” way to create a visual experience that is completely different to what i’ve seen before. Anyway I can express my ideas visually if its drawing, painting or sculpture, the out come will be original and thought evoking.

DESIGNER

Seeing the potential in making a living at creating and telling a visual story i began to learn about design and its many applications. From print, to web design and even in to video production and motion graphics. The principles apply to all the mediums, its learning the process and applying the right touches to tell the story.

MAD MAN

I like to be told I cant, thats the wrong way, that wont work. Theres no better motivation and driving force of knowing that the cards are stacked against my ideas or outlook, and then prevailing and showing, that hey theres more than one path through this landscape. I think out side the box. I take the projects that scare the rest of you and make it happen.

"Have no fear of perfection,
You'll NEVER reach it."

Skills to pay the bills

Design

Design

Visually telling a story and creating an experience from pixels or paint. The concept the balance and composition are all the foundation for a solid final design and campaign.

Photography

Photography

The light the shadows the angle and timing. Capturing the world in the view finder through the glass of a camera, to stop time in an instant.

Video Production

Video Production

A moving composition sometimes is the only way to fully tell the story. Literally bringing an idea to "LIFE" through motion and design is a fulfilling experience. With the right lighting, pace, audio and imagery combined the ability to emote an emotion though the process is amazing.

Branding

Branding

Standing out in the watered down, re hashed, reused and over done visual land scape is a must in todays world or marketing and sales. Stand out! Be seen, and be unique. Lets build your brand.

Draw With Me, Fall Water Color Course.

With the great success my first “DRAW WITH ME” charcoal drawing course, we’ve decided to add a Fall after school session as well.

This time around we’ll be learning to draw from printed images, learning to layout an image, shade and perfect the image. Once our drawing is laid out we will add some color and vibrant life to the piece with our water colors. This class will double as both a drawing course and an introduction to color and color theory ( i know it sounds like it might be difficult….but it wont be..I PROMISE!!)

 

Water colors are a very forgiving medium. I find its easier and more excitable for younger minds to learn with water colors than any other paint medium. We’ll be creating any where from 1-3 pieces per class. Any young artist who wants to learn more and really experiment with mixing mediums and adding color, will love these classes.

The updated schedule is as follows

The Details:

Courses are open to all ages above 7.

Starting September 2nd

Tuesday nights from 530 to 730pm

This is a 10 week Course

Courses are prices are as follows

$300.00 for all 10 classes upfront ($30.00 per 2 hour class)

$50.00 by the week

We will be creating on water color stock and using water color paints, as well as colored pencils and some charcoal. All of which will be supplied.

Below are a few examples of what we might create in class.

Welcome to Forlorn

A visual storytelling of the trip from the Pound to the Palace.

This is the first piece in a series of animations to bring the poetry of Jason Flatt to life. Jason is the one making it all happen at the Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue out of Dallas Ga. He found that as the times get tough, and the days grow long he has to keep pushing and has to make a difference. Writing his poetry allows him to express his emotions in a way he never thought possible. This year he released a book containing a portion of his works. I thought what better way to bring more exposure to the work and the cause of FTTF than to create a visual representation of the poems, and really bring the audience along the joinery, show them Jasons words…let them actually see what it takes to rescue one dog. Stay tuned, this is our journey to Save The Pits.
