This is an 8mm visual/musical mash-up that I created as an interpretation of the song "Spirit Fingers" by Four Tet. Along with the help of Brandon Goodwin, I took some expired 8mm film stock, shot various things around town (which none of them came through as more than just blocks of color) and then came back and physically drew on the film.
No "high and mighty" concept behind this one - just a visual interpretation of some great music.

Helvetica: The Film
I just found out that "Helvetica: The Film" is going to be playing at the local art-house movie theatre, The Moxie, here in Springfield and I am SUPER excited! I don't really even like Helvetica, but I am excited to see this film! I made a quick little poster to advertise the event - but upon thinking about it, maybe the "cool" thing to do would be to not use Helvetica at all... oh well!

Boxes, boxes, boxes...
Some interest and kind words have been posted about my limited-edition boxes I sent out.
DustBubble is examining the contents of the boxes in much depth.
Ephemera posts some observations as well.
MagnetBox has a few Flickr photos up to share.
Devil Arts has a very nice Flickr photoset of all of the aspects of his box.

Andy Warhol's own little boxes
The Daily Telegraph has a great story that mixes many of my passions: art, collecting, ephemera, and time all into one. From 1974 until the end of his life, Warhol kept a box beside his desk into which he swept all the ephemera that passed through his hands. When it became full, it was taped shut, dated and sent into storage. By the time of his death, aged 58, in 1987, Warhol had filled more than 600 boxes.
What is fascinating is that most of the boxes are still sealed shut. A few of the boxes are now on display in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Maybe I should change my line of work...
I was complaining last night that I do not have any business cards to my good friend Frank Chimero. The only cards I have left have an incorrect address, an incorrect phone number, and an incorrect email address - so basically, they are worthless. I opened my email this morning, and Frank had worked tirelessly all night on this new design. I think it is perfect.
