Rob Brulinski and Alex Wein are the creators of the Copycat Project, a historical and pictorial documentation of a landmark building known as the Copycat building. And a landmark building it is, once the home to the Crown Cork & Seal Company, which produced more than 40 billion bottle caps a year, and founded by William Painter, the inventor of the bottle seal. Today, the building is home to the creative class made up of artists, musicians, and writers. The book is currently sold out but the duo hopes to find a publisher.
Here’s the story and video interview I did with Brulinski and Wein on The Darkroom.

The first one featured singer and songwriter Risa Binder who spoke about growing up in Maryland and her debut album “Paper Heart.” Binder along with guitarist Ryan Bull performed “Paper Heart” and “You Made It Rain.”

Sunday marked the 56th anniversary of the death of legendary Sun journalist H.L. Mencken. Here’s a video I produced featuring The Sun’s Frederick Rasmussen, who speaks on his life, work, and beer. Years before he died, he had written his epitaph, which went something like this: “If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl.”

I created this video with close friend and fellow journalist Lam Thuy Vo about the evolution of electronic privacy. It was picked up by Motherboard. It was my first time drawing illustrations for video.
Did you know on any given day, an average person sends or receives 41.5 text messages, 110 emails, receives 8 mobile calls, visits 94 websites… unknowingly leaving electronic traces through mobile devices, credit cards, and laptops. Meanwhile, a person is recorded dozens of times a day by surveillance cameras… watch the video to hear and see more about our privacy laws.
I was fortunate enough to do a video shoot for WSJ with Graham Motion, who trained this year’s Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom. The shoot took place at his training facility in Fair Hill, MD and spanned two days. I’ll post some still photos from the shoot soon.
