We are halfway through summer and the first of many projects that I have been involved with JUST RELEASED! I had the privilege of witnessing the creation of NYC based singer/songwriter Jessica Carvo’s first EP Projection. You probably recognize her as the face of The University of Delaware Deltones during Season 3 of NBC’s The Singoff as well as a member of the Italian American Quintet Bell’Aria.
Jess has given us a glimpse into the process of making Projection and very graciously allowed me (with the help of videographer’s Asha Glorioso and Joey Cardella) to edit her journey as she prepared for the release of her new EP.
I am very proud of Jess and look forward to hearing more from her as the summer goes on.

I had a significant amount of time to kill during work, so I experimented with my own modern “pointillism”. So many DOTS!
Messing around on Illustrator makes me happy. This piece developed on screen at 4am last night/morning. Who needs sleep?
Took a walk in the Flatiron district and ran into these beauties.
Until recently, the coffee cup was singularly a container for hot liquid, but as I adventure the streets of New York, it has become the quintessential way of grabbing free wifi in a warm place.
The coffee cup: a way to transport hot liquid, a canvas, and key to the interwebs.
Hypergraphia: The Cup Drawings Studio in the Prow
“My drawing surface of choice since 2007 is the cardboard coffee cup. The slightly off-white, matte surface of a sturdy unadorned cardboard cup is a wonder and delight. It takes beautifully the jet-black and the earthy colors of the Faber and Castell India ink brush pens that I favor.
I save the cups from the hot drinks I buy and occasionally collect them from other artists with whom I meet for tea or coffee around town. I wash and dry them and record on the bottom the date, place and occasion, as well as the drink that was consumed, thus capturing the social moment just passed.” - Gwyneth Leech

So tired, almost didn’t get this done.
Steve Jobs With Salt
It’s a portrait of Steve Jobs made with only salt and a razor blade, which may sound :| but is actually :O.

Every once in a while a commercial comes along that is smart, creative, and completely IMPRESSIVE. The amount of brains, time, and craftsmanship to conceptualize, build, and execute this “short film” is mind blowing. In fact, I didn’t even know this was a commercial until the very end. I can’t begin to fathom the amount of collaboration that must have gone into this making this project such a success. The camera work alone is enough to inspire any aspiring videographer or film maker and invoke the creative spirit.
So, despite the hysterically funny name ” the touchwood” I give this commercial an A+. Concept, execution and film work are all astounding.
Thanks to @tinasheing for sharing this with me.
