We installed the full suite of Unarmed jerseys on Lafayette Street between Houston and Canal this past Friday. See pics of the entire run here, or, better yet, head over to Manhattan to see them in person. UPDATE – The SoHo installation was recently covered in Yahoo Sports and Design Observer.
These are dark times for the empire. My UNARMED project made its public debut on Flatbush Avenue last week. Installing the prints and seeing the reaction of fellow Brooklynites was among the most gratifying experiences I’ve had as an artist. Over the weekend another black man was killed by a police officer, this time in […]
Believe me, the last thing I’d rather be doing right now is designing another jersey and posting it on this website. I started this project in 2013. That’s a lot of tears spilled over Adobe Illustrator. A lot of marches and grief. And so I let a few go by – Walter Scott, Philando Castile, Breonna […]
Diogenes Brito, a designer at Slack, writes about his decision to make the skin color of the Add to Slack button brown. Why was the choice an important one, and why did it matter to the people of color who saw it? The simple answer is that they rarely see something like that. These people […]
A few weeks ago my friend Peter asked me to photograph a recent project of his. Designed in concert with his graduate students at RISD, the Disaster Go Bag is made for when the apocalypse strikes and it’s time to peace out. It’s made of a custom textile that filters air, or, you know, disease […]
Here are a couple pics I shot awhile back with carpet designer Joe Carini. It happens often enough. Either you’re waiting for a specific date when something is published, or approvals, or whatever. And by the time they’re live you forget to tell people anything at all. Joe has been a great inspiration to me. […]
– Langston Hughes Something short to read on the above here.
I’ve challenged myself to create a new poster or design for How to Steal every month. I’ve already put a couple over on the tumblr blog but this one is hot off the presses.
I sat down with Khoi Vinh, former Design Director of NYTimes.com, to discuss the subject that has made his work most noteworthy: the grid. And in his case the “g” almost deserves to be capitalized. The result is an illuminating conversation about Khoi’s plans for the future, first interest in the field of design, and […]
An interview with friend and cinematographer Bradford Young, who was recently invited to join the ASC, and has received nearly every other honor a cinematographer can receive in his short career. Brad was one of the first people I met when I arrived for grad school at Howard University in late 1999, and we shot […]
I wouldn’t ordinarily use this as a space for pimping products, but on this rare occasion, I must digress. The CableBox by bluelounge is one of those incredibly simple yet incredibly useful products that absolutely delivers on premise. In this case the premise is simple: “space is gained.” Their separate product the CableDrop performs admirably […]
Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME’s (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Data courtesy of courtesy of the Heliospheric Imager on the NASA STEREO mission. More info here. […]
RR 2009 desktop background available here. 36 birds straight to the dome.
Call this an expansion of the painted sky theory espoused previously. This one is from Central Florida, and taken at the appropriate hour. There is simply no cloud that looks like this hovering over any part of NYC or the boroughs. Oh, and I can’t get enough of shooting things on this floor apparently.
This Summer, in spite of living in a new (to me) and very picturesque city, I’ve started to fearlessly explore a technique of photography I like to call “objects sitting atop handwritten notes scribbled on the New York Times.” So far, so good. From the above: Five Favorite American Actors: Dennis Hopper Sean Penn Christopher […]
