I love Doogie Howser

I can't stop watching this clip. Between NPH's expressions and Jimmy Fallon giggling in delight, I can't get enough.

I do have a weird obsession with Doogie Howser, and therefore NPH will always have a special place in my life, but still... watch it.

"Check this out Magic..."

So-Cal Fire Poster Project

I found this project just by chance, and I know it's a little old... but some of the posters are gorgeous!

This is my favorite by local mpls firm Wink.

oddly addicting

A few friends on Facebook have been posting this site, so I thought I'd share it with you all:


Start scrolling through and you'll find yourself thinking "Hey, this is awesome." Keep scrolling and eventually you'll think "Who the hell are these people and why are some of them so creepy?"

Either way, it's an oddly addicting must see.

St. Paul Art Crawl

One of my favorite events is coming up, the St. Paul Art Crawl! I've been to several and they are always loads of fun. You get to walk around through artist's studios/studio apts, buy art, eat food, drink wine and most of all meet some super cool people.

I'll update more as it gets closer, but be sure to mark the dates on your calendar:
Friday April 24, 6-10 pm

Sat April 25, 12-8 pm

Sun April 26, noon-5 pm

a little self promotion to start things off

It's that time of year again, time for the AIGA MN Design Show! I was pleased as punch to see two pieces I worked on with Spunk Design Machine selected for the show.

First off was our work with the Seward Co-op, winner of the Green Leaf Award! I worked on the exterior coloring as well as designing the boulevard sign. It's an amazing new location, make sure to check it out if you're ever on Franklin Ave. in Mpls.

Here's a shot of the co-op in process last fall.

I was also pumped to see that my poster was one of the two chosen to represent the entries from last years Poster Offensive! (as a side note, I still have first edition screenprints available for purchase)

The winners site has been posted, make sure to check out all the amazing local work: http://minnesota.aiga.org/designshow/
