I'm really liking London based Alex Mathers fresh, simple and colorful illustration style.

I'm Back...

After a brief hiatus in writing here, and I'm back! I haven't written in my blog since my move to Brooklyn back in November. Three months later I'm freelancing at Showtime Networks, working on a new short film (which I'll be posting progress here) and eating up the culture/creative explosion of New York. So stay tuned for inspiring interviews, event write ups, short film progress, and more!

Above: A couple of weeks ago I attended a Dave Eggers & Chris Ying talk at Tishman Auditorium on the "San Francisco Panorama" (latest experimental newspaper issue of McSweeney's). I would highly recommend picking up a copy, it's an amazing achievement.
