(What it is)
A multi-genre playlist of auditory inquest. Updated regularly. Spotify for now.
a divergent stream of my creative work... hopefully chronicling some sort of meaningful change / progression.
Introducing... HANGYAKU.
I finally launched my first product via kickstarter– a deck of premium playing cards, combining Midjourney's take on Japanese Ukiyo-e style art with modern design, to tell the story of hangyaku samurai.

More slow progress on the JW.Sans type Spec
Been chipping away at the type spec as I have time between other projects. I've made peace with the fact that its going to be slow going, but I'm happy to leverage MidJourney for some additional spice.
MidJourney Continues
I still don't know what it all means for the creative work flow, but I've been exploring some of my favorite subject matters (a penchant for skulls and gold.. yea, I dunno either). Bringing into PS for some touch-up/compositing...
Exploring MidJourney
Like a lot of other people, I'm on the Mid Journey bandwagon. I think this is going to change a LOT about creative work-flows, licensing images, concept art... Yea, its cool but also pretty worrisome what it's able to do.
Been living in some Tavarua daze
Been off the grid for the last week out in Tavarua, and was fortunate enough to time it with some unreal conditions. Full series coming in time.
DANC / Shaping Bay Session 001
Its been a while in the making, but I finally got around to creating and publishing my first Behance series in a long while.
Shootin with Mike
Hangin around to document some team rider content for DANC with friend and team rider Mike Siordia
Back shooting with Dan
Out capturing some more content with Dan for DANC. This time trying to capture the collaboration between him and a team rider and good friend.
DANC Graphical exporation
I've been going down the rabbit-hole of technical line workings for DANC. Everything about the brand and the world it occupies is technical, so it seems like a miss to not bring that into the design language.
JW.S Font Spec Continued
Still going on the font spec, and exploring some more expressive/abstract applications of it.
Joystick states for the upcoming photo site
Dug up some of the different states for my upcoming photo site with Aristide Benoist. No launch date yet as its a low priority passion project between 2 very busy people... EOY is best guess.
Danc Photo Series
While also working through some video grades, Ive got a bunch of photos to get through. Right now the photos + video have different grades, so I need to consolidate that a bit. I've also not tried mirroring photos and video grades...
Grading some DANC footage
Diving back into Davinci Resolve to grade some old footage of Dan shaping for DANC. Camera settings aren't ideal, but should be useable still.
Photo series... finally combining my photo + design.
I'm working through some designs to get photo + design co-habitating. This first pass is for easy behance case studies, but more developed versions down the road for my photo site (hopefully coming by end of year).
Had me a rough day doing the internets
I've been making a push to increase performance on my site, AND trying to make Delta more robust... it didn't go well... all day. There's a million 403 errors on this page right now.. sooo.. sorry? Hoping to get it sorted out soon.
Work continues on the JW.Sans type spec... it will get done
Re-visting/re-grading some Iceland photos.
Branding Style frame for DANC Surfboards
Further developing the branding for a business partnership with DANC Surfboards Inc. Lots more to come soon.
My site is a mess again, sorry– hang tight.
I'm trying some new things, and I broke other things with my site in the process... it's a little messy, but I'm working on getting it cleaned up ASAP.
(3x) Nominated for the 2021 Awwwards annual awards
For what it's worth, Ive been nominated 3x time for the Awwwards annual awards: Independent of the year, Site of the year, and Mobile SOTY. Im grateful, but 2021 is just the set-up– 2022 is hopefully gonna be another level up.
An editorial AT3-21 Exploration from the archive.
Early in the project with Ari, I took a look at some more editorial approaches– here's one of them.
Sites a bit broken (Sorry, working on it.)
After adding the store, there's been a cascading effect across all the primary pages. Lots of restructuring and chasing down problems, leading to something thats a bit of a monster right now. Hoping to have it sorted by the end of the week.
JW.S Store (beta) is now live.
After a lot of work, the JW.S Store is now live. There's still some bugs, missing content and layout issues to sort out.. but its there and it works. More products soon to follow :)
NYC Wallpaper Pack Released
A collection of images from a week spent roaming around NYC.
Still on the reel
It keeps growing in scope as Im animating old static comps for the first time... and I took on client work in the interim. I'm going to start pushing out clips from the reel soon, and post the final thing in a few weeks :)
2021 Reel coming.... soon?
I've been diving in and working on my first ever 'reel', and its coming along... albeit slowly. Original music, and trying to efficiently convey all the stuff I do. Client work this week, releasing next week :)
Prints will be available soon!
I've had some people ask about photo prints, and I wanted say that they will be back soon. I have to do some test-printing... or buy my own printer. With 'softer' contrast images, it's important to get the prints right. Stay tuned :)
Tidying up the Site Again
I haven't had too much time to update this lately... I got sucked into cleaning up the site (again). Ahead of launch, there were some regrettable dev decisions made, and I'm finally cleaning them up. Some time off now too, and then back at
Now available: Sun(rise+set) 001
Just released a new wallpaper pack for your phone, Sun(rise+set) 001. As you might expect, it's a collection of shots from sunrises/sunsets.
AT3-21 wins SOTM on Awwwards!
