Vectorvault is Ten

I’ve spent a decade searching for the best vector art in the world. I wrote a short story about it.

Interested?

Read the first chapter. Then decide whether it’s a tale worth your attention.
You might be surprised.

If you are reading this, then I’ve only got one thing to say to you:

Thanks

You’re the reason we’re still here.

Game of Thrones – Season 5 – Finale

Another amazing season

There were so many incredible twists in this final episode. I really enjoy where this story is taking me and I cannot wait to see where it goes next.

If you’re not watching Game of Thrones, I gotta ask you:

Just what exactly are you watching?

Zootopia – Teaser Trailer

The animal kingdom – civilized

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

Vectorvault is 10

A decade of vector art

This year, Vectorvault celebrates 10 years of searching the world for the most inspiring and creative vector art. What an education. What a ride.

Now, this is not what I would call a “success story“. At least not in the traditional sense. In many ways this is a cautionary tale marinated in stunning digital art. Some of the best I could find.

So, who am I?

Just some guy.
You could look through my portfolio if you wanted or glance at my resume, but that won’t really tell you who I am. At times, I question it myself. To really know what makes me tick, you’ve gotta know what circumstances got me here.
I’m an artist disguised as a designer.
It’s a secret.

All I can tell you is that I’m a nice person who just wanted to leave something behind. That’s what Vectorvault is to me. Proof of my existence and my love for the exciting world of vector art.

This is a graphic design love letter. One filled with triumph and tragedy.

The Dance of Dragons

The ending of last night’s episode of Game of Thrones did not disappoint. An exciting action sequence concluded with one dramatic exit.

As a student of visual graphics, I was blown away at how well the special effects were for this scene. Flawless from my perspective. Watch for yourself and then tell me what you think at the bottom of this post:

The planets were finally lining up

I was drunk on self-confidence. Furiously pouring my soul into my notebooks. Writing stories about my life. Love letters to my wife and daughter. And laser-focused on leaving my mark on the world of graphic design.
