A while ago I wrote a story/made props for a dogpiling, candle lighting, synth playing scene that took place in Mid-Michigan during the late 80's. It takes 10 minutes to read but I swear to you that it may be worth it. Valeria and I also made some songs for the fake bands.  Read the story here, and just in case you don't see the link in the story for the myspace page- www.myspace.com/dogpilecompilation.

The breaking news is that a few hours ago I printed about 10 pink/black JENNY JENNY shirts with my friend Sean from Streamline Butterfly. More on this tomorrow with pictures and everything.  The official story of course is that I found a box of these vintage shirts at an estate sale in Saginaw, Michigan.
Moving to Boston tomorrow, sort of a big day.

I'm now in Boston.  Below is a picture of the Jenny Jenny shirt featuring a cycloptic Madonna, and a print signed by all members of the band.  If you want a shirt or a poster let me know!


More Design Fancy

The second installment of Design Fancy is up over at Core77. This time the story is about Kurt Manchild and his theories on dreaming. This one was a lot of fun to do- A new toyline, new NES game, new NES controller, a couple of books...The plan is for these to be out every three weeks, so there's a lot more to come. I don't want to get all cheesy, but I'd really like to thank the humans over there at Core for letting me do this.


Reading Situations

Who says there's nothing cool in Midland, MI?  I found these books at an antique store and I've really been getting into them.  Monsters In The Sky and Fundamentals of Mass Transfer have great covers, and I appreciate them for that.  The other two- Bear! and Communication Between Man and Dolphin I have another plan for.  I want to take pictures of people reading them at airports, getting some reactions from people sitting near them.  Maybe there would be no reaction but personally, I would love it if the lady sitting across from me was reading Bear!



Design Fancy for Core77

I'm going to start writing a new series for Core77 called Design Fancy.  They'll probably be up bi-monthly.  Each one is going to feature a fictional Designer and some artifacts of what they designed.  I've been a fan of Core since I started off at Kendall in Grand Rapids so I'm really excited for this...Hopefully people can get something out of it!  It's also nice because it will force me to keep on doing projects.  To the 20 people who read this blog- I'm sorry that there haven't been a lot of posts lately.  I was getting ready to move back to the US.  At this moment I'm in Midland, Michigan, the headquarters for Dow Chemical and home of the Tridge.
