Forgot about these! Some sprites I made a while back when I had my heart set on making an iPhone game. The title was Johnny Air Mart and it was slated to be released for the iPhone. First is our hero, Johnny Air, a chef-pirate who raids supermarkets at night in his flying pirate ship. Next is a pesky Securitybot, one of many sentries that roam the closed supermarkets at night. Finally we have Lady Octopus, a mutant who appears when chemicals leak into the Fish Section of the supermarket.

Stumbling upon these just made me want to pick up the project again.

The cheese balloons worked! Here they are on maple syrup filled tofu bases surrounded by dehydrated miso soup crumble.

Time to set the mood? Inspired by the small-batch design scene that has taken New York by storm, Cutlass is an ambient lamp I designed for the home. It is made up of milled aluminum rod, spun maple base, LED lighting components, and polyester rope cord.

Flavor Phenomena By Chance

Fortuna is an eating experience that was created to excite an audience of restaurant-goers who are accustomed to ordering food from a menu.

Each edible die has a different-shaped hole on each face relating to the corresponding topping to pair it with.

The dice, ranging from Pesto-Gouda to Havarti Cheese in material, are cast on the plate. The resulting food pairings are created through pure chance.


By fortune the diner will discover amazing flavor combinations.

No meal is ever the same.

Learned so much from this user testing sesh- what my prototypes communicated visually did not match up with what they communicated tactilely. I’m learning that design is so much more than drawing ideas- especially when the thing that’s being made is going to be experienced in more ways than sight.
I think the video is still on my old phone but Xenia even thought that prototype 1 was a shrimp when she felt it with her eyes closed (she’s terrified of shrimp lol).
