  • My logo & branding concepts:


    … and my website design.


    Here are the original logos the site initially had:


    This is the original blog design with a pink plaid background and distressed font choices….


    I work for doejo, a creative web & print agency, and I recently was given a short deadline project for a publication called, Grungy Gentleman.  The project was an overhaul of the branding and design of the site, which at the time, was just a blog. My job was to help it grow-up into a polished, men’s publication.

  • Tatzu Nishi’s newest exhibition called, Discovering Columbus, brings a prominent statue outside of Central Park into a temporary home.


    Statue on a regular day…


    Nishi’s new spin on the 120 year old statue.


    Nishi even designed a Toile wallpaper showing Americana he remembers from his childhood.


    The marble statue of Columbus rises above 75 feet, and was designed by the Italian sculptor Gaetano Russo. It was unveiled in 1892 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s first voyage to the Americas. Although the statue has a prominent location, it’s height and size make it almost unseen along the urban facade. Nishi changes all that with his new exhibit. By creating a temporary room around the statue not only allows viewers to see the statue in a different way, but it also demonstrates the privatization of public spaces. The exhibit is open from September 20th – November 18th 2012. Reserve your free tickets here.

    Happy Friday, Love.

    Happy Friday! I wish I was Grimes… or at least just good friends. Have a happy weekend.

  • So, in the dead of winter last year I helped my good friend, Gus, with the makeup for a music video he was doing for Nathan Xandar. It was a freezing day in some small town with a lot of great people. Here’s a result of all our hard work.

    KZ in NYC

    My crazy/sexy/cool/ultra-talented friend, Liz Gilmore, made this lovely and nostalgic video of our impromptu New York trip last February. This is the last push I needed to get my butt to NYC and I’m forever grateful for it!

  • So, what began as a gift for my downstairs flat-mate for all the delicious pulled pork he made for me over the years ended up as this hand-painted woodgrain shelf I made to sell at Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago. This was an old department store, cheap looking “woodblock” topped kitchen island/table that I found in an alley one day, then left outside on my deck for two winters, until I finally got the motivation to transform it. I’ve been obsessed with woodgrain for decades as well as Roy Lichtenstein, so this is what came of that. I custom cut each of the shelves from quater inch ply and hand painted each piece. This is a few years old, and I only have crappy iPhone photos of it, but I stumbled upon it today and thought it should be shared!

  • Here is some lettering I did for a shirt design for Family Records. They should be out soon…

  • Located at the foot of the Hochschwab mountains in Austria, the Grüner See is a county park during the frosty winter season. However, after the temperatures start to go up in spring, and the ice and snow starts to melt, the park floods with crystal clear water. The water ranges from around a couple of meters deep during the winter season up to 10 meters during the summer time, when it turns into a paradise for divers and tourists. The waters slowly begin to recede by the end of July. Can’t tell you how badly I want to see this before I die!



  • I stumbled upon this video awhile ago and still can’t seem to get over its brilliance….

  • Some backstage shots I took of Porsche Design Spring 2013.


    So this was my first show EVER for Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week. This was an exclusive showing of Porsche Design’s collection.

  • More of my New York Fashion Week shots, this round are some of my faves (out of literally hundreds of photos I shot). This show was Robert Geller’s collection for Spring 2013.


    I was lucky enough to get to photograph New York Fashion Week my first few months here in New York. Here is my photography debut with Alejandro Ingelmo’s shoes.


  • The latest from Made by Hand. Reminds me of when I first started college and thought I was awesome for smoking cigars… Oh, the memories.
