“Actualization explores the emotions that grow out of our ultra-connected world.”— Alex, Electric Objects
Depending on if my day is more on the technical or conceptual end I bounce between movies and music. The Guest and Drive soundtracks are personal favorites, and when my schedule is more open to distractions I've been cycling through Stanley Kubrick films.
Recently I've been working with two groups of musicians on their visuals. Being on the opposite end of the creative spectrum it's such a refreshing challenge to translate their audio focused talents into a tangible, visual form. Here's a little sneak peek at an in-progress piece.
For sentimental reasons I think my personal favorite falls onto a fantasy turned digital rendition of a GameGirl.

I generally start with words, overheard quips and doodles in a sketchbook. After an idea forms I block out an overall composition, note technical details and materials, followed by a swift dive into a digital canvas.
In the end practice eclipses talent – work hard at what you do and take pride in the little details. Opportunities will naturally follow.
.c4d, it's all about where the magic happens!
I'm a regular on Instagram and Tumblr. I try to post daily pieces on Instagram, with more process and outtake shots on Tumblr.

Too many good folks to list! Some personal favorites include Anny Wang, Catherine Kim, Danny Jones, Luke Choice, and Shawna X.
Last fall I went to a Turrell exhibit at David Zwirner Gallery which was a neon punch of inspiration and beauty. Now that I live in LA I frequent the Broad and Getty for both the collections and inspiring architecture of the museums themselves.
