"Keep Moving Forward"

The phrase is used to empower and motivate the team as well as inspire them to overcome challenges in the game. It was created after a client from Japan requested an urban art-style script for their club’s logo.

Xbox Studio!

The Summer SetThe Wild FeathersPierce the Veil, and Robert DeLong are some of the artists brought in to Xbox Studio! as part of their achievement group festivities.

They celebrated their platform releases and brought in music artists to perform in their studio to help camaraderie. The timetable of images reflecting the artist that was acquired is seen in the entrance and the hallway walls.

Coffee Shop of Jazz

An organization began a Jazz topic coffee shop in Osaka, Japan. They connected for help with assisting them with imagining a plan that would communicate the subject and feeling of Jazz.

This was my first huge commissioned work of art without a projector. It required some investment to study, learn and recalibrate on a case-by-case basis to finish the ideal piece the customer had mentioned and communicated. In return, the outcome and results exceeded the client’s expectations.
