Been thinking about ‘time’ for awhile. Kids, life, work and friends near and far. So it was only fitting that Time Pieces needed to happen. Sometimes the inspiration comes from a visit to a local antique shop filled with seemingly forgotten times.
Time Pieces: The square where TudaLou and Clock Tower meet everyday is on Rue des Amis. The buildings are inspired from a photo by Robert Doisneau entitled Kids from the place Herbert. Paris, 1957
Time Pieces is a zine that was sent out as a promotional piece for clients.
It's about wanderlust, friendship and realizing who is with you for the long haul.
A test for me to see if perhaps direct mail can still be effective. it’s costly and time consuming on my end, but i’m hoping it can cut through the clutter of what art directors and art buyers see everyday. i didn’t to do a mailer that was just a recap of highlights of my work and instead aimed to create something that has a longer shelf life. Time Pieces was a story that was close to my heart and it was easy to get excited about.
The character of TuDaLou is the result of a collaboration between my daughter and myself. We discovered that (Too-da-loo) may be derived from the french term- “à tout à l'heure" (see you later), a revelation that led to the creation of this story.

thanks to Creative Director SooJin Buzelli for encouraging an interpretive approach to the visual solution.
after the completion of the project it was a fun experiment to see if we could further convey the concept through motion.
for those of you who are a little more patient, here is a stereograph of the image.
if you gradually cross your eyes and look through the pair of the images you should start to see a middle image appear, if you relax a bit at this point you should see the image come into focus as a 3D/stereo image.
