I love making flyers because it's a chance to experiment combined with a short deadline. I've made lots of flyers for my bands and other events, and below are a few samples. The Joe & Jo's flyer below won Honorable Mention for poster design at the 2007 NC AIGA Biennial Juried Show.
I created ads for Fluevog shoes contests, and the two pieces below were finalists. I've used the contest as a way to experiment and to inspire my other art.
Here are two recent examples of installation art pieces that were excepted into juried shows.
DUMP was part of the Durham Art Guild’s 64th Annual Juried Exhibition in 2018. The five letter-shaped pillows were constructed from black fabric and filled with newspapers (the nightmares of President Trump). Gallery visitors were encouraged to play with the pillows --- spelling words and constructing their own piles.
American Desk was included in the Truth to Power 6 exhibit at Pleiades Gallery in 2018. My goal was to submit an outrageously protective response to gun violence in schools, and my first idea was to construct bulletproof backpacks and clothes for children, but I quickly found out these already exist. Yes, you can buy bulletproof coats and bags to protect your children at school. I put together another useful and absurd solution: a wall of sandbags around a child's desk.
