I have a Spotify Playlist that I add to when I find new music. Some current favourites are Foals, Kendrick Lamar, Baauer, Fin, Pusha T, Purity Ring, RÜFÜS, and Geotheory.

What have you been working on lately?

Mostly commission work, as well as continuing to make a GIF every single day as a personal project (pislices.ca).

What work of yours are you most proud of?

I’ve been making a bunch of short video loops recently, and I really like how those are turning out. Otherwise, I made a couple cover artworks for Monstercat in the past that I am really happy with.

Cinema 4D / Photoshop / After Effects

Basically every GIF artist on Tumblr. Some current favourites are sutureblue, protobacillus, mildvibe, and dodogifs.

What are your favorite galleries, museums, exhibits, etc.?

It isn’t a physical space, and moderate bias because I am one of its curators, but Cross Connect consistently puts out quality posts showing off some of the best artists around.
