There are a few things you should know about me. I make things look pretty. I am a pop culture enthusiast with an affinity for black and white photographs. My goal is to post my thoughts, processes, and inspirations in hopes of inspiring you as well.
In this last NBA Finals 2013 commercial, Forever Kobe, we are mesmerized by Lakers megastar Kobe Bryant’s incredible slam dunk in the 2002 Finals against the Nets. Kobe remains suspended in air, which triggers a number of iconic pop-culture moments transcending in various way - from street art to a video game avatar, to a wedding cake topper, representing the impact the NBA Finals has on the world. We arrive back to the arena to find Kobe still suspended in his heroic moment symbolizing, “Forever is BIG.”

Confession time: Microsoft Paint is single-handedly responsible for my initial interest in design. As a middle school student, I couldn’t afford the software and I didn’t know the first thing about downloading bootlegs (I still don’t). But much of my childhood was spent in front of a computer spending hours doing the most with what I had. It was just like all those other programs, but it took 20x as long. Drawing, photo editing, creating page layouts. You name it, I figured out a way. Trust me when I say there aren’t many people that truly understand what MS Paint is capable of. Those cool kids with Photoshop had it easy.
You can only imagine how much I appreciate a project like Jim’ll Paint It. Ask Jim to paint it, and he’ll MS Paint it. Jim gets it.
