I stopped by Printed Matter's L.A. Art Book Fair this weekend and picked up books by Karel Martens, Nicolas Jaar and Thomas Raat along with Wax Magazine Issue 5, a screen-printed tee and a few other goodies.

Found this gem on a visit to Everyday Music in the Capitol Hill district of Seattle, WA. It caught my eye for its impeccable cover design but after a listen realized it could definitely contain some samples.


Old Work

As I was perusing the aisles of The Elliot Bay Book Company in Seattle, WA, I found some of my old published work in the design section. I felt like I was opening up my high school year book and seeing my senior portrait again.
