Goodie Monster Kickstarter Campaign

Update June 4, 2012: The next steps for the Goodie Monster are to find a home in a Portland area school, to make an impact at a local level directly with kids by providing a framework for eating healthily. Check out the Goodie Monster on Facebook, or contact Mark Jacobs for more information at

At long last, Mark Jacobs and I have been hard at work the last few months working on figuring out the next steps for the Goodie Monster. Now, we are ready to raise money to make more Goodie Monsters and share more healthy snacks with people. We’re really excited about this and hope that you are to, so check out our campaign on Kickstarter.

Goodie Monster Plans Afoot

Last year my friend Mark and I made the first ever Goodie Monster. Since then, we have been planning, scheming, dreaming, plotting, and strategizing our next move. The last few months have been full of big ideas for what the future might hold for the Goodie Monster.

The long and the short of it is, we want to make more Goodie Monsters that will serve happy and healthy snack food to passerbys, and we have been working on making that come to fruition. Here is a sneak peek of some of our thoughts that culminated in our soon-to-be-launched Kickstarter Campaign. Stay tuned!

Sculpture in Place

A small portfolio website I designed in collaboration with Studio Jelly recently launched for James Malbon Harrison, a sculpture artist and civic infrastructure expert. His work is simple and draws inspiration from pattern and relies on material use that hides the underlying structure.

Muppet the Hairdresser's Dog

Spanks Hairdressing in Portland, Oregon has a mascot named Muppet, a wiry haired little dog that will sit and stare at you for hours on end while you wait to get your haircut. So I stared back at him and drew this picture. He is the dog with the most organized hair I’ve ever seen, so I’m not sure why he is called Muppet.

Så har jeg boet i Danmark knap en måneds tid, og har faldt godt på plads i en dejlig stor lejlighed på Åboulevard. En del tid har gået med at orden det praktiske ting som følger med når man flytter, men jeg har også haft nogle chancer til at komme ud og se byen lidt. Her er nogle snapshots fra marts i København.

Bird in the sky, transatlantic flight.
I thought I was moving to Danmark, but it turns out I now live in Kebabistan.
Urban tattoo / graffiti on a statue.
The Danes are so organized that they have a check-out system for watering cans in the local cemetery.
Grød. Also known as its more pronounceable counterpart: oatmeal. This is the fanciest grød/oatmeal I've ever had.
Fancy grød deserves a fancy little seating area.
Old, new, and of course a character from the Simpsons.
Hand painted type on wheat-pasted book pages, found in Nørrebro.
A local Shepard Fairey piece. Or, as Portlanders would describe it: put a bird on it!
