  My brother Taylor's girlfriend Dandilion told me I should make a collage of John Wayne riding a narwhal into space.  Because it's a genius idea , I made a pass at it today. Its a sleepy saturday watching Ferris Buellers Day Off , eating Caprese salad and planning the packaging for our new luggage tags! Sneak peak on those to come....

One of my biggest clients was the Nestle Purina Corporation (owner of Friskies brand cat foods) and this is the story of how I translated their branding into my own vintage collage style. The story begins with Miller High Life funnily enough...   "The Champagne of Beers" The collage above is a composition notebook I designed many years ago and used to sell on my website.

Another "wallet" collage ( that never got made into a wallet) I found the other day. This dates back to approx 2003-2004 Brooklyn days. I was so fired up for creation back then.

Anyhow,...
