One of my favorite places to shoot is Colorado Island in San Diego. You get an insane view of down town. I got a new lens for my camera and I was testing out some accessories. Here are a couple of photos & videos of the trip.
I purchased a Movo, it is a motorized pan head for time lapse. As your time-lapse goes, it gives you a great panning sweep and gives you a great cinematic look. Below is what I captured. I am really excited about using it more.
When you have pro wrestler as a friend, life can get exciting. I had drew and design this logo for a t-shirt a couple of years ago. He then re used the artwork and created rig attire for his come back. My friend took a year off and made his debut this weekend and won a title from Zealot Wrestling. I had to take some photos.
This has been a crazy month. My company hired an agency last summer to rebrand itself and all of its product brands. I am part of implementing the updated look, almost evolving the brand and implementing it in our digital and print communications. At first I was not wild about the brand development but there is a slick cohesiveness and a sophistication I am enjoying. Here are a couple of projects I have been working on.
Last year was HellBoy's 25 anniversary. HellBoy is a character created by Mike Mignola, HellBoy fought Nazis occultists. Comic Con San Diego was celebrating by showcasing the character in their Souvenir Book and had a contest for artist to do their renditions of the character. My son who was 13 years old at the time, entered the contest. It was a proud Dad moment. I grew up reading and drawing comicbooks. I took his artwork, created vector artwork and made T-Shirts for us. Being in the creative field I love encouraging kids to express themselves through artwork. I think the shirt was bold and keeping the illustration red made it really stand out.
Earlier last year I attended Marketing Nation presented by Marketo. I had a full schedule with my team, but I was able to sneak out on the first morning of the conference. I got an Uber and went exploring. I hiked all over the the Golden Gate Bridge. I was not able to walk across the bridge but I got some cool photos.
I designed artwork for merchandise for a friend who is a professional wrestler. He is gearing up to go back on the road and wanted new a new t-shirt for promotion. I take on fun projects like this to experiment. It keeps me loose and lets me try out techniques I wouldn't normally use. I took an event photo taken in Arizona and emphasized the the flying knee with vector elements. The best part of the design process for me is to do the mock ups.
Catching a great sunrise in San Diego is not to difficult, we have amazing days. My good friend and long time mentor/partner Neil Brouillette and I got up extra early to shoot and record the San Diego sunrise at Spanish Landing and Harbor Island, both locations by the airport. I am obsessed with timelapse so I would set up my GoPro Hero 4 and capture the sunrise behind downtown San Diego. Neil is working on Panramic HDR's and testing how his equipment handles low light. It is always great to go out and work on the craft. Here is what I caught!

April was a busy month, I designed several campaign designs this month. We had a Content Marketing and Hispanic Marketing event with several job postings and a podcast promo. I was even a the guest host on one! Most of these were formatted for Facebook but I did several sizes for the different platforms. I was really happy how the Volunteer Appreciation week design turned out. I was able to pull the photo into Photoshop and mask out the background. Thanks for checking out my work!
