Color Chart: A New Hope
Color Chart: Empire Strikes Back

In 2017, I began breaking down the color distribution of some of the original Star Wars trilogy's most iconic characters. The distinct color palettes of Star Wars' eclectic roster has long been a fascination of mine — along with, admittedly, pretty much everything from a galaxy far, far away. The simple, primary, graphically concise visual design of the Star Wars universe has become seared in my brain, and continues to inspire my approach to graphic art and illustration.

After having some fun with these color visualizations (I am working on the color charts for Return of the Jedi, I promise), I turned some of them into a hip little animation that First Person used across social media to honor the fourth of May.

Monstrum Media Logos

My good friend and colleague Rob Wentz has been writing industrial and electronic music for over two decades as a part of the group Monstrum Sepsis». In 2013, he asked me to design a logo and manual cover for his new outfit Monstrum Media, a developer of software editors for synthesizers. I graciously accepted, providing he pay me with a wheelbarrow of Monstrum Sepsis tunes. It's really great music.
