A series of chapter headings for a book my friends wrote and published (or will soon publish). It is about the intersections between cinema and Mormon theology / culture.

I tried to keep them fairly abstract and symbolic, with only vague human figures. Not only are blank human outlines easier to draw (though I am getting better), they also allow the viewer to project themselves more easily into the character.


A PDF style-guide I created for DevMountain and DM contractors

Overview:

A style-guide for DevMountain marketing. What you can find on this page is the first iteration of what was meant to eventually grow into a fully fledged design system.

Problem:

DevMountain hadn’t had a dedicated designer since its inception. Instead, it made do with whoever had enough familiarity with design tools to create whatever was needed, and eventually, 3rd party agencies. While there was no issue with the designs and assets made, the lack of a central design vision meant that design decisions were rarely consistent.

Proposed Solution:

A fully formed design system that could be used as a reference and authority throughout…


A simplified view of the final overall feeling and flow of the survey.

Drawing has always been a hobby of mine. It feels great, puts me in a pleasant mind space, and it always feels good to get better at something.

What exactly do you eat while in a dungeon or days out on the road? Stew, biscuits, mushrooms, sure. But if you’re getting bored of that, try some of these crowdsourced rations!

“These appear to be the preserved remains of ancient, revered soothsayers. The soothsayer was likely alive during the process, according to these markings. Who were these people? … Are you eating their nose??!

“If they didn’t want us to eat it, then why does it taste so good?”

These gummy oracle remains have a chewy and dusty texture, and taste slightly like peach.

When you eat a candied body part, you wake…


Curious to taste

Bolded words: These signify concepts and details that I am interested in having you readers flesh out. You are invited to comment with your ideas!

The nobles, bored, began a new wager
First to taste an impossible flavor
The youngest member, hungry for success
Pushed and prodded into an arcane mess
Game long forgotten, it tastes and it twists
Bound by old pacts, its recipes shift.

Still more to taste (always more), but there can’t be a winner in a game with only one player.

Solitary, terrifying
15 hp, 0 armor

Ancient Cutlery (2d8) clean, close, severing

Altered Bite (d10) messy, close, too toothy

Moves:

  • Move quickly and precisely
  • Taste from far, close, or far too close
  • Want more
  • Ask for permission, make a deal
  • Call for assistance, earthly or not.

Diane: — going to blow up this investment with your stupid, goddamn visions. You can’t still be talking about this. 700 billion!

Chuck: Diane, please —

Diane: Did you hear me? 700 billion! Why did you have to go crazy NOW? When the stakes were THIS GODDAMN HIGH?! And your years and months of corporate games mean that I can’t do anything to stop you. Christ, I can’t stand you.

Chuck…
