I'd like to formally declare myself for the NBA marketing draft.

I'm an advertising art director and I make stuff.

I tore my ACL once playing basketball and made a Flags of the World Pop-Up Book to pass the time. Then I tore my ACL again playing basketball five years later but this time the meniscus went, too, so I started painting a bunch of animals to pass more time.

This is the work I did when I was healthy. Please enjoy.


Rockets Space Patches

I remember watching the Rockets win their first championship with my dad in 1994, because we had to order Pay-Per-View (a big deal) and my mom ordered pizza for delivery (an even bigger deal). I've been a fan ever since and to celebrate their 49 seasons, I designed nine space patches for their hallmark seasons (because I also love NASA).

Home

In 2013, I went on a Kickstarter-funded, 50-state, 99-day road trip to learn why locals called their state home (food and sports, mainly). Then I made a bunch of posters, postcards and a couple books from my learnings.

Below is the video of the project and sample spreads from the book.

Emergen-C Posters

Emergen-C wanted to promote their new nighttime product, Emergen-Z, along side their regular orange powder.


Chobani Champions Posters

Chobani wanted to make a series of school cafeteria posters featuring their Olympic athletes that stood out and wasn't your typical motivational T•E•A•M•W•O•R•K posters.


Cold and Flu Commercials

A couple commercials for Panadol Cold & Flu that ran East and South Asia and the Middle East.

Panadol Cold and Flu "Reality Show"

The Sports Calendar

I wanted to know when I could expect to tune back into SportsCenter after a long baseball season, so I designed this chart and made it into a clock that takes a year to make one full revolution.

Résumé

Feel free to look at more work or see my /latest projects on the blog.


Oh yeah. PS.

In the 2014 playoffs, Mo Williams made up beef with then-Rockets, Troy Daniels. The only thing Mo would say about the matter was that Troy knew what he did. But then in Game 5, Troy let the numbers do the talking and put up more points than Mo. So I made this.

Then, Troy made it his Twitter avatar after throwing a filter on it.
