SIDE QUEST #1
Giving new life to devices that brought me endless joy. Refurbishing countless consoles served as a nostalgia trip and naturally, leaned into the nerdy side of myself.
Of course, I designed and illustrated my own labels for my collection.
Yes, it’s 2023 and I designed my own Gameboy Color game.
Custom N64 label design for my external hard drive — AKA my Time Machine backup.
SIDE QUEST #2
Harnessing the 80 year old grandma in me, I’ve been using my type / illustration knowledge to build stained glass pieces.
SIDE QUEST #3
The 90’s are back and I fell in love with creating all kinds of work utilizing a CRT TV and all things VHS.
Connected the CRT to my Macbook to create custom movie titles.
Salvaging shells from Barney, Bob the Builder and blank tapes.
Collection of custom VHS tapes ready for future projects.
A functioning VHS tape designed for my partners 30th birthday.
Easter eggs and classic 90’s design trends galore.
Utilizing my CRT in my design workflow to create work for clients, workshops, and of course, myself.
Connecting my Macbook to the CRT to use as a secondary monitor. Why? I ask you, why not?
SIDE QUESTS #4–9999
I explore all kinds of avenues. Some stick around and some are on a brief hiatus. Either way, this is where they all live.
Ceramics! I took many many classes but alas, this side quest is currently on pause.
Building and designing an electric guitar! Do I know what I’m doing? Absolutely not.
Snagged a Macintosh Classic at a yard sale for $20. Never done anything like this before but I GOT IT WORKING.
Trying to learn Nomad Sculpt so I can 3D print all kinds of nonsense. Am I doing too much? Nah.
