design

Welcome to my "analogue" section of sample reclaimed art, home accessories, and toy design concepts. Much of what I do involves some degree of repurposing or when possible, the use of local resources. 

My themes are rooted in the pop-culture generation that I grew up with - so expect some bright colors and goofy hybrids!
