In the mid 1990s, I was an adjunct professor at NYU and built one of the first course websites there. Out of this work, I wrote The Wired Professor (NYU Press, 1999) on the use of the internet in teaching. For the next almost fifteen years I built and managed websites in higher education. Websites are constantly being updated and most of my work has long since been replaced by newer sites employing the latest internet technology. Here are screenshots of my earliest websites:
1994. drawing for t-shirt stencil, pen and pencil. BBS, or computer bulletin board services were accessed by command terminal programs and pre-date the graphical world wide web. This design was requested by client for his site. The t-shirt was never produced as the first internet browser was released shortly after and my client shutdown his BBS.
1989. Sign. airbrush on illustration board, 30″ x 40″ Requested by the chair of the Department of American Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. Here is the initial drawing and the finished sign.
1988. Trade show display. airbrush on four 30″ x 40″ foam core boards. This was produced for Kenwill Graphics, Inc., a Silver Spring graphics agency, to showcase the forms they made for the University Club of Washington D.C. Two panels were left empty, so that Kenwill could attach forms at the trade show.
1988. Technical drawings for Jands, Inc. and Kenwill Graphics, Inc. I worked doing inking and paste up at Jands, Inc. and did freelance work that ranged from displays to drawings for Kenwill Graphics, inc. in Silver Spring, MD.
