I don't remember the origin of the term "starfish butthole", but my design professor in college used it to refer to really bad work we put on the walls for critique.
Thus, this is my really bad work. And some not so bad, WIP stuff that might look pretty later on. And things that inspire me, like awesome illustrations and graphic design work. And maybe some songs. And porn. Lots of that probably. And raging. And other randomcity I see fit to toss up BECAUSE I DO WHAT I WANT.
WARNING: I like sexy things so beware of lots of NSFWish goodies, especially after work hours.
Confessions of a Designer - Quotes from the world of design (by Anneke Short )
All of these.
Might I add two of my personal faves?
“What. Pay you for a simple illustration? Can’t you do that, like, in between your other drawings?”
- Fuck you?
“I have a friend who has a friend who knows someone who would do this for free, you know?”
- Then let that person do it for you because I definitely won’t.
The whole “It should be simple” thing really annoys the fuck out of me more than anything. I always counter with “Have you done it before yourself?” and usually follow it with that last gem. Seriously. Don’t ever tell someone how simple someone’s job should be. It’s usually a segue in trying to get cheaper or faster services. I don’t tell my dentist it’s easy to fill a cavity, so it shouldn’t take that long and should be half the price.

The design nerd in me loves the fuck out of this.
Really cool work on our favorite video games by Ian Wilding !

I am seriously considering buying that Shadow of the Colossus poster. And the Portal one :| <3
Ed. 25 17x23 2 color Metrotaur Fortis silkscreen print on Archival 110lb french white paper
I originally crafted this for the Diesel Only the Brave gallery show launch for their fragrance of the same name. It’s a take on Gustav Klimt’s famous poster for the inaugural Secession and the Ver Sacrum except depicting my Metrotaur versions of Athena, Theseus and the Minotaur.
I’ve just got around to offering this as an edition of 25 (19 available here) in black and gold. Each purchased here comes signed, dated and numbered.
This is an orgasm worthy print. I had a art-history nerdgasm at the obvious Klimt derived inspiration, but man. Check out that beautiful printing. I may have to scrape together $80 for this beauty.

Also the message in the third poster - YES. This is exactly why creatives need to stop watering down their product. (I’m looking at you, action adventure animation)
