I'm absolutely honored to have work selected & featured in the CommArts 2014 Typography Annual. Of the 1,894 entries submitted, only 152 were selected by the incredible panel of judges. The Falls city mural we created earlier this year was selected to receive an award of excellence. The annual is full of absolutely incredible work and I highly recommend picking up a copy on bookshelves now, and available to order online as well.
This past September the Typism Conference was held in Gold Coast, featuring an amazing roster of speakers in Australia's first creative conference focused solely on lettering & typography. In correlation with the conference a book was published featuring work from around the world, including many of my favorite lettering artists. It was nothing short of humbling to be asked to submit a piece for the book, which is now available to purchase.
I also did a limited run of letterpress prints of my submitted design, available to purchase here.
UPDATE: Prints are now available HERE.
Over the last few years I've had lots of people ask when I'm going to make some prints to sell, so I finally pulled the trigger and did a limited run of letterpress prints. They were printed by the fine folks at Hound Dog Press, here in Louisville and will be available for purchase on this site first thing Monday morning, December 2nd for $35 each. Whether for yourself or others, these prints make for a great gift and are ready for framing.
The prints are 8x10 inches with 2 color black & metallic gold ink printed on 110lb Crane lettra cotton paper.
I was asked earlier this year to create a piece for a show entitled troublesome Houses, an exhibition inspired by the music of Will Oldham. I've listened to Bonnie Prince Billy for years, so it was a no brainer. One of my favorite songs of his is called "I see a Darkness" which has been reworked many times over the years including a cover by Johnny Cash. I wanted to create a piece that centered around the title, set against a swirling storm.
I used the opportunity to experiment with acrylic, designing a dimensional piece, seven layers deep. Needless to say I was extremely pleased with the final result. Kevin Titzer curated an amazing show, which kicked off it's opening night last friday. The show will be on display thru December 14th at PUBLIC Gallery 131 W. Main St. Louisville, KY.
Work by all the artists can be seen here.
