Kirsten Wiig.

Of the hundreds of Polaroids I shot at Sundance this is definitely my favorite. I wasn’t even supposed to photograph Kristen this year and at the end of the day I walked into my studio to start packing up and there she was looking at the wall of polaroids. “These are cool”. “Thanks, I’m mike. Can I shoot one of you?” “Sure”. I shot two frames and then she disapeared out the backdoor into an SUV.

Over the past few weeks I have had the privilege of working on a project for the Adobe Creative Cloud. My assignment was to create header art for tutorials surrounding Edge Reflow, Dream Weaver, Speed Grade, and Audition. The big challenge was to make images that did not literally represent the learning content but instead took on a looser interpretation of its subjects. I am pretty excited with how these came out, with how friendly the Adobe team has been, and to have gotten to work alongside some of my favorite artists and dear friends. Thank you AD Kendall Plant, the Adobe Cloud Team, and Erica Larson (my babe)!

For the Calgary Herald. 

Super, super tight turnaround on these. I think I had less than a day to do each illustration, which might have been a stressful if not for the interesting subject matter and pleasant art direction. 

The first one was for an article about eyelash extensions and the second series was for a rather humorous feature on the zodiac. 

Thanks to Vishu Mahajan!

here’s a bunch of illustrations i recently made for 50feasts, a food photography and styling school based in manila. their work is so stunningly elegant and so is their quaint little studio! i’ll be learning the basics of food photography from them soon, and my inner foodie-slash-shutterbug just couldn’t wait :) you should sign up too!

food and cameras are some of my favorite things, and so making this was an absolute joy :) i got to put my rusty french to good use too! also, see if you can spot that subtle little doctor who easter egg. (hint: it is not dalek-friendly.)
