My friend, Roy, asked me to work on the design and packaging for his latest album. The recording session was a very homegrown and grassroots type of project. I was delighted to contribute to the album in my own way. Here are some photos of the finished product.
I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with the artists at Sevenly on a series of prints featuring 4 quotes of Martin Luther King Jr. (Above prints from left to right: Sean, Zach, Nathan, and mine.) It was a fun project to be part of. Each print is limited to a run of 250, and every piece is signed and numbered by the artist. Visit the Sevenly print shop to see all of them and pick up one (or four). Here are a couple process shot of my work.
Every once in a while I get to design a shirt at Sevenly. Here are a few I’ve created over the past few months. The “Be Brave” design is available right – but only for a week (through Jan. 25). It’s available in a variety of styles for men, women and the childrens. Buy it here. The other shirts are long gone.

Jaipur supposedly has a bunch of great forts and palaces. We, however, were tired of such monuments by this point in our trip. We did drive into Jaipur and visit the city palace. Not impressed, unfortunately. After, that we met friend of Stephanie’s for lunch. She is in Jaipur for a few months volunteering at an orphanage for child with HIV. We really enjoyed visiting the kids. There is a home for boys, and then a few blocks over and down the street there’s a home for girls. In between the two is a small slum area where we ran into more kids. Despite living in total poverty, they were full of life and big bright smiles. I snapped a few quick photos of some of the kids we came across…
We took a train from Jodhpur to Jaipur (about 5 hours). Actually a pretty pleasant journey. Jaipur is a fairly big city in Rajasthan full of palaces and forts. It’s popular 3rd stop for everyone visiting New Delhi and the Taj Mahal. We stayed about a gem of a place called Savista, about 45 minutes outside of town in a rural farmland area.
One of the highlights of our time in India was a visit to the small village of Bagru, where it seems just about everyone is involved in the traditional craft of wood block printing. We spent about 3 hours with the folks at Bagru Textiles touring the village and seeing every stage of the process. I apologize in advance for the number of photos coming your way…
