In honor of my one year anniversary at Old Navy, here is one of my favorite ongoing projects, gift cards:
Has anyone heard of fancy.com? It's a relatively new site, and is essentially a hybrid of Etsy and Pinterest. You can "fancy" (pin) different photos, but you can also buy the things in those photos right there. Pretty handy.
For anyone looking to "discover amazing stuff, collect the things you love, and buy it all in one place" (their tagline) it's a great site.
I've opened a shop on fancy.com and have just released my first series of art prints. Brighten up your home with these colorful nature prints. Check it out!
It is with a heavy heart that I say farewell to Lucasfilm. It has been an amazing year and a half with Lucas and I could not imagine a better experience for my first job out of school, but I recently accepted a position with Old Navy.
I’ve only been with Old Navy for three months now, but so far it’s a wonderful place to work. The people are fun and friendly (check 1.) The work is interesting (check 2.) And my 1pm meeting yesterday included champagne and french fries. (check 3 thru 100.)
To all my Disney and Lucasfilm friends and colleagues, thank you for the memories! I can only hope that my new job will provide such rewarding experiences and amazing people. Alas, there is no R2-D2 roaming halls. Sigh.
I'm happy to finally share some visuals of the branding, packaging and marketing materials I designed for the Star Wars Legion Project—a project where Disney, Lucasfilm, Pixar, Marvel and Industrial Light & Magic artists reimagined the stormtrooper helmet for Star Wars Day 2014.
This project kicked off with an exhibition in downtown L.A. at the Robert Vargas Art Gallery. The event was an absolute blast and a huge success. The gallery was packed with people all weekend; fans were in awe of the artwork and kept asking where they could buy the helmets. One guy was so excited, he asked if he could buy a CD of the music we were playing (it was Pandora.) Look for the next appearance of the Legion helmets: there are several plans in the works for these helmets right now. Stay tuned via the Star Wars website.

Recently I was lucky enough to be a part of the Star Wars Legion exhibition, a project where 300 different artists were given the chance to paint/change/adorn stormtrooper helmets for charity. Below is my process. I started with a plain white stormtrooper helmet and ended with my final piece, "Trooperarium."
