According to the tax forms I reluctantly fill out each year, I am a graphic designer, art director, and editor. But I’m also a self-diagnosed pizza-loving, adventure-seeking, lovable smart ass. I believe that creativity and design live at the intersection of color, form, style, and imagination and it’s a wonderful world to escape to. I draw inspiration from fashion, architecture, street style photography, interior design, and cinematography. My aesthetic can be quite diverse – austere, bold, romantic, kitschy. My tastes are eclectic so I think that’s reflected in my work.
I spent some time thinking about what I’m feeling in those “I can’t even” moments. I thought about feeling deflated, weary, tired, apathetic. And trying to tie a visual to those emotions – the weight you feel, the burden – somehow my twisted mind brought me to a toilet. And I wanted to inject some humor into the Can't Even Card by displaying it in dainty pastel colors like the kind of porcelain throne you’d find in your grandma’s house.
I have a dry, sometimes dark, sense of humor. The Read Idiot Card is very Roald Dahl meets Addams Family. It’s a sadistic Matilda working through her teen angst.
