president trump poster no. 2
16 dec 2016 | design

President-elect Trump has mentioned several times his lack of alcohol, smoking, and drugs likely contributed in part to his success. This poster is a mock-up of a potential ad campaign style—it would be called !DAC (no drugs, alcohol, cigarettes) campaign with the tagline “Making America healthier than ever before!”—albeit with a darker tone than would likely be used.

is freedom necessary?  poster #1
31 dec 2016 | design

Challenge ideas and assumptions now: be better prepared to defend them in the future.

A worthwhile read: https://www.huxley.net/bnw-revisited/.

This poster is the first in a series of posters that will explore the relationship between freedom (liberty/license) and various ills plaguing society. It ultimately aims to get people thinking about calls to limit freedom, the context in which these calls arise, and what that means when taken to the extreme.

donald j. trump campaign poster 2016 no. 6 | americans edition
18 nov 2016 | design

This is an updated version of Election poster no. 9 with a focus on Americans instead of President-elect Trump. Will likely do a continuing series of these posters. Description of previous copied below.

Assuming a President Trump, this is a 3-for-1 future retrospective with a style reminiscent of some older presidential posters.

Those who listen to Trump's full speeches/interviews or read his books get a dose of his boundless optimism mixed in with his more pessimistic views about the current state of the Union. Given his current run of policy speeches, focused the poster on the former trait.

Presidential election 2016 poster no. 13!

A Sec. Clinton triple play. For those who believe in equality in all aspects of American life, Sec. Clinton's support of requiring women to register for the draft is a step towards realizing that gender should not influence one's ability to serve.

Presidential election 2016 poster no 11!

Completing the major candidates set.

Even if one doesn't agree with all of her positions or worldview, it is worth listening to Dr. Stein's speeches and interviews along with evaluating her stances in greater detail. Might come away with a new idea or two.

While everyone focuses on the predictable, over-the-top sayings of one candidate, sometimes it is another's more subtly dicey pronouncements that cause sweat to start trickling down one's brow.

It may be shrewder to continuously complement—rather than smear with cries of "dictator!"—an elected President who brought prosperity to a crumbling, dispirited, nuclear-armed nation.

All the hoary takedowns of Trump and his supporters seem to ignore that many may simply desire another Reagan, TR, or JFK rather than a Wilson, LBJ, or Nixon.

Re: poster, President Trump would be the one audacious enough to declare and wheel-n-deal to get the budget for and excitement behind an American landing on Mars by the end of his second term, yielding to untold technological/scientific benefits similar to the Apollo program.

Time to get rid of the negative all talk, no action mindset of "You are wasting your vote by voting third party this election", etc., etc. If you are on the right side of history and want to improve a failed system, do it now! Just like the Founding Fathers did.

2016 election: power and the presidency

I'll keep hammering on the need for more positive, high energy surrounding election coverage.

What appears to be lacking in the discourse surrounding modern Presidential elections is: would people become so impassioned if the Presidency was still constitutionally limited (to Article II)?

The poster is self-explanatory. Trump is now the GOP nominee. There needs to be more positive, high energy in this election season. That is all.

Fifth in the 2016 Presidential poster series.

Went to a Trump rally in San Jose last Thursday (June 2nd) to see what they are like in person. It was very (positive) high energy and the people I met were courteous, even when noting I wasn't a supporter.

Left the rally and stayed around to observe the anti-Trump protesting (rioting) after. Also high energy, but in a physically violent, intolerant, and nasty way. A complete disgrace.

This poster focuses on the positive high energy.

2016 Presidential poster number 4.

During speeches, Senator Sanders has delved into America's past to show when the hand of government helped push the United States to new heights. Wanted to honor the loftier aspects of his rhetoric with a poster to match.

Additional high energy posters forthcoming...

Part 3 in the 2016 Presidential campaign poster series.

"Under budget and ahead of schedule" is an easy to remember phrase. Fits Trump's campaign rhetoric, so here's the poster. Originally was a direct numbers-to-numbers comparison with all the other candidates, but that got a little busy...

Wanted to make a series of 2016 presidential candidate posters like I did for the 2012 race. The first is for Donald Trump and focused on emphasizing his general goals rather than specifics. They were also left appropriately vague to allow the viewer to interpret them through their own lens/opinions on the issues.

cheyne-stoke respiration
12 apr 2013 | design

One can create art with data, many have proven that with beautiful infographics or dazzling company reports. I thought using R to create an artistic rendering of a normally mundane process would be neat. I created a graphic based on Cheyne-Stokes respiration with the help of ggplot package. I think the resulting work has a sci-fi feel to it, almost like it could be a symbol for a corporation should the sinusoidal lobes be made solid.

Note: The black line is the breathing rate while the red and blue interlocking lines signify aponea and hyperponea, respectively.
