The Soil Of San Francisco
I put together this map to show you that a decent amount of of San Francisco’s 49 square miles is not actual land. If “the big one” hits, I hope you’re inland because the green and brown areas are going straight into the bay. But anyway… I hope you like the map.
Geocaching Signature Item
Behold, my brand new geocaching signature item! Last weekend I got to leave a few of these “coins” in geocaches around Lake Tahoe. It felt great to finally have an official leave-behind.
Limited print run of 1,000 with each coin individually numbered with a fine-point Sharpie
Constructed of durable weatherproof plastic but also thin enough to bend and fit inside bison tubes and other small geocaches
2”x2” size allows it to fit in most geocaches, including an Altoids tin, a very common container
A fun takeaway item for geocachers like myself, who like collecting these signature cards
Pocket Factory Logo Concepts
Here are a few mocks of a logo that I’m currently designing. The project details are top secret at the moment, so I can’t say much else. The logo itself is very literal: A pocket with factory smoke stacks and smoke. Does it work? If so, which one is best?
“Get Huge And Push Content” Poster
I decided to create a new version of my motivation print by using 18”x24” cardboard paper, letter stencils and black sharpie. It’s a little cleaner than the previous one and easier to reproduce. I think I like the simplicity of this version better. Thoughts?
Kickstarter Project Design
I recently created a few images for a friend’s Kickstarter project, which was a zombie movie entitled I Am Alone. Unfortunately, the project was unsuccessful (I blame it on the ambitious goal amount) but they’re going to give it another try in a few months. More design pieces to come then. For now, check these out.

Official Geocaching Coin
I’ve been geocaching for nearly ten years under the pseudonym Duck Muscle, yet I’ve never left any sort of branded item in the boxes I’ve found. Many seasoned geocachers leave wooden nickels or business cards with their handles, slogans, home location, etc. I thought it would be fun to borrow this idea and design a fancy limited edition coin as my official leave-behind. Below is my initial design. What do you think?
Making Earrings On The Weekend
My Etsy store, Crab Legs USA, sells shrunken potato chip bag earrings and, for some odd reason, people keep buying them. Fortunately/unfortunately, I’m running low on inventory, so it’s time to make more. Here is a picture of my kitchen counter from last weekend. If sales pick up, it’s only going to get messier.
Business Card Sized IOU
A few months ago I posted mocks of a business card IOU that I created. Today, I decided to gather a stack and take some legitimate photos of the finished product. Take a look and let me know what you think.
My friend Brian and I write a lot of IOUs to each other. We typically scribble them on napkins, post-it notes and even socks. In order to clean up and standardize the process, I created a business card sized version. It’s not 100% done, so please let me know if I should change or add anything.
