The Magic Bowl

To continue to promote Cookie Me! I storyboarded and shot this 30 second spot, titled “Magic Bowl!”

I look forward to learning more AfterEffects in the next two months.

It’s part social experiment, part internet-altruism and part promotion.

Try it out now!

Inspiration, Vampires, & A New Song

Album Cover for Mayowa Tomori's latest 4Hour Project, "We're All Going To Die Soon"

It’s called “We’re All going To Die Soon,” but don’t be fooled by the gloomy title, it’s a really uplifting song.

Download it here.

4Hour Project: Blow (Feeling Song)

I wrote a new song tonight, one of my best lyrically. And I feel like I’m starting to say that everytime I write a new song.

I’ll re-record the vocals tomorrow but in the meantime, here’s a snippet:

MayowaTomori.com is Coming Soon!

The Sistine Chapel Began with A Sketch, much like MayowaTomori.com

 

Even the Sistine Chapel began as a mental sketch in someone’s brain. Please bear with me as I get the content populated and get MayowaTomori.com off the ground.

In the meantime, feel free too explore my work/me through my LinkedIn, Twitter or Vimeo.

See you soon!
