The Painting I made for Bennett's Bistro, on Mercer Island, is complete. The Private Dining Room just opened, with its dark wood wine racks and cork-covered walls. The room looks great, and I'm happy to have been a part of the new look.

The video work done with World Famous is now on the Nordstrom website. Here are a couple of stills from the video. And if you Click on 'Fit Fundamentals', you can find the whole video, shot on the set I made. You'll also find everything you could ever want to know about buying jeans. I mean EVERYTHING. Unfortunately, the cool loft door that I made never made it into the shot. I'll have to use it again on another project someday.
Tony Fulghum and crew at World Famous did a great job with this project. Great camera work, and a beautiful job editing the final product.

These are a few stills from a Taco Time television ad I recently had the chance to Art Direct. Here is a link to the ad on YouTube. David Leonard directed, and we shot it on location in a Taco Time in Issaquah, WA. Oscar Lofgren and Fernando Dingler worked with me, building the sets, and on location. To add to the stodgy ambiance, I made a quick little equestrian painting for the shot, which you can see in the middle shot. The Fancy Restaurant Set had to pull apart, and move quickly offscreen, revealing the Taco Time. (then go back together for multiple takes).

I've been working with the people at Nordstrom a lot lately. Making backdrops for online and catalog photo shoots. The people at Studio N are always a pleasure to work with. Here is a small sampling of some of the backdrops I have made recently for them.
