Introducing the official Conan O’Brien Tumblr 2.0
Working at Team Coco Digital, I helped launch Conan’s Tumblr to coincide with the debut of his new TBS show. Now I live 3,000 miles away in New York, but still keep in touch with the crew back in Burbank. Recently, when they rolled out a rad redesign of teamcoco.com, I thought it’d be fun to build an all-new theme from scratch as a weekend project.
The site is now live and I’m very proud of a few features that most users will probably never notice: retina optimization, a custom responsive framework, a JQuery post viewer I hacked together, and the best damned Open Graph implementation I’ve ever seen on a Tumblr theme.

Moving to New York, my first encounter with culture shock was walking in and out the local businesses in Brooklyn, when I learned that many of the markets and bakeries had cats, and it wasn’t a fluke.
Naturally, Bonnie and I took photos when it wasn’t too embarrassing. NYC Deli Cats is a blog I built to celebrate those cats. We’ll be posting new cats as we come across them in the ‘wild.’
Enjoy.

I’m extremely proud to be a part of the latest release from James Guffey, my partner in crime and fellow Sleepwalker. The Pursuit drops next week, and here’s the cover art I created with inspiration from Guff’s message on the album. Stream & download below…

We’ve lost a sweetheart of a dog, and she’ll be deeply missed. She never needed a leash on a walk, never caused any mischief, and always sat up on her hind legs to greet us. She knew my Dad, and kept my Mom company for years after he passed away.
