the aspect of art i most enjoy observing is composition and use of space.  i like seeing everything in its right place, allthough... i rarely know where that place is, until its put there.  i admire those who study composition and have a good explanation of how it works.  but for me, i just like spending time adjusting a piece until it feels right.
so i took a light-hearted challenge for myself.  i decided that i was going to try to crop/edit/salvage several photographs selected from the 45 photographs i took during my 2 month trip to Guatemala.  The camera i used was a Holga(basically a plastic box with a shutter) it was my first time using that type of camera and on my return, after getting the film developed... only a handful of pictures came out the way they were intended to.  The rest were a mess of collage exposures, showing only glimpses of the subject. 
i enjoy how the edits turned out, and it was a joy for me to experiment with composition on photographs that remind me of many good things.
i hope you guys enjoy them aswell.

logo for TRINITY

This is a logo design hasn't been accepted yet, but i thought it turned out nicely.  its bold, simple, and symbolic.
one of the cleaner, more established logo designs that i think i have done.


This is a art T-shirt for SpendYourself.  The tshirt highlights the work that the organization "Life In Abundance" is doing in Kenya; they specifically help orphans find homes within the community, and empower the poor in that area with grass root programs.
ironically my brother left for Sudan yesterday, and he is meeting some of these guys from this organization unrelated to my relationship with them.  weird.

my thoughts

i couldn't get this image out of my head... i was thinking about it all weekend and i had to make it.  in my mind the composition was going to work awesomely... but in creation it worked out ok.

i have been exposed to alot of different interesting design lately.  i was experimenting with type and textures.  this is my first go at it.  it pales in comparison to the quality of design i have been looking at... but i think its a good first try.

be where you are

this is a t-shirt/logo design for a slogan sojourn church is using to encourage their community.  the idea is to become more comfortable and intentional about the ordinary everyday environment that you are in.
