HESS Corporation 2007 CSR

While working at Inc Design I was tasked with designing the 2007 HESS Corporation Corporate Sustainability Report. Although some of my original direction was altered for the final site, most of it stayed true to the original design.

Hispanic Heritage Festival

On Sat. Sept. 20, 2008, I took part in the Elizabeth, N.J. Hispanic Heritage Festival. We were asked to create a painting that referenced our Hispanic Heritage. I decided to create a piece entitled “Poder de la Gente”. Revolutions have occurred throughout history and have helped shape most of Latin America. The “Ten Years of Spring” depicts a period (1944-1954) of free speech and political activity, proposed land reform, and a perception that great progress could be made in Guatemala. It is a homage to the power that people’s voices have when they are united.

“Love is Pain” at the Kreme Grand Opening

I was asked by my boy C-Righteous who just opened up his third boutique shop in the heart of Newark called “Kreme“, to showcase some artwork at the Seed Gallery for his Grand Opening. So I banged out some pieces with the theme “Love is Pain“. Here are a few pics of the event and the pieces I created.

Shouts go out to my friends and family for sharing this experience. Be on the look out for some gear coming your way soon. If you are interested in any of the pieces, email me at cesar at 5in5o dot com.
