I started this project with Doyald Young, it was to be a gift from myself and Doyald to one of our mutual friends. Before the poster was finished, sadly, Doyald passed away. The day after his passing, I contacted friend, and ultra talented Jessica Hische. She graciously and beautifully brought the project to life. The poster took a whole new direction from a gift for a friend to a vehicle that raises money for a Art Center type scholarship honoring his legacy.

Phonography is a journey through the highly personal interests of designers, photographers, musicians, skateboarders and creative people alike.

Over 150 photos made up the show sold with proceeds donated to Doctors Without Borders.
The Hurricane Poster Project was an international collaboration of artists and designers to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Posters were designed, produced and sold online, with profits donated to the Red Cross. This is my contribution.

Signed and numbered, limited edition posters were donated by designers and artists from around the globe to be sold online for victims of the wildfires. All proceeds were donated to the Salvation Army. This is my contribution.
I started the Haiti Poster Project with friend Leif Steiner three days after the 2010 earthquake hit Haiti.
