Albums I Bought in 2010

Over the past year I began experiencing a feeling of guilt over my contribution (or lack thereof) to the music world. Thanks to the wonders of the internet I haven't had to pay for an album in years. I also can't recall the last time I payed to attend a live show, as it's remarkably easy to get guest-listed at the majority of venues I attend. So this year I decided to start giving back in the most direct way I could think of. Each time a band I'm a fan of played in town I'd go to their show and buy a vinyl record. Often times I was directly handing the cash over to a band member. I have now started accumulating vinyl versions of my favorite albums. There are plenty more albums from 2010 I need to purchase. Mp3's will have to tide me over til they come to Portland again.

I have still yet to purchase a record player though... Soon enough.

Nike 6.0 HO-2010

Whats that? You want to know what have I been doing with my past few months at Nemo? Well let me show you. Here's just about every spread that appeared in an action sports magazine during the Holiday season of 2010 for Nike 6.0.

Photo treatment, color matching, cropping and layout by me, art direction by Steve. Got a few favorites. A few, not so much. Pretty solid collection though.




























A Nemo Holiday - Part 2

Part two of our holiday greeting was a bit more premium. The Secret Sauce of Awesome Design by Nemo. 50 of our most major clients got one of these hand-delivered to their doorstep.

Hardcover books hollowed out and filled with a foam insert contoured to fit 6 mini bottles of Jack Daniels and one mini Tabasco bottle. A laser-cut piece of walnut veneer polishes-off the foam insert. I designed the cover and spine. Detail shots below.



My favorite part of these were the weight of them. After being hollowed out and filled full of booze, it felt to be the weight of the original book. So on first assessment, before opening it, one really wouldn't suspect anything was up. Also the entire foam/veneer insert can be removed, so the book can be re-purposed to stash anything.

Warranted To Be



I recently got invited to be in a show at Compound Gallery in NE PDX titled Blazer Mania. For my piece I illustrated a basketball court in the vernacular of a Pendleton Wool blanket pattern in the Blazers colors black, white, red, and silver. 19" x 25" 3-color screenprint, edition of 29, selling for $30 a pop. I think it should be a good show. Opens tonight, and I think it'll be up for a month.
