A Total Book “Nerd-Out” In 2D Design Foundation


The American Philosophical Society (APS) Library is one of my top most treasured institutions of Philadelphia, and I make any excuse to view the collection. On this excursion I gave a lecture and presentation on beast and creature/monster mythology in western illustrated scientific manuscripts published between the 16th and early 19th centuries.




Pre-college Course Highlights

The 2015 pre-college year was full of discovery in and outside of the studio. I always enjoy  developing and leading a studio painting course; but this year, I was ecstatic to share my love of urban wheat paste culture+print installation in my Street Art Print course.

New Zine: How to Catch a Jackalope

“Carry with you two glasses and fine whiskey. At twilight pour and prepare for a tranquil wait. The aromas will draw the illusive creature, he shall drink his fill and faint with blissful intoxication. This is how to catch the Jackalope.”

The first zine of 2012! Ink jet printed on Mohawk Superfine with a hand pulled block-printed cover. This edition will be small so reserve your copies soon!

University of Tennessee’s Gallery 1010 Presents: “Out of Frame, Off the Wall”

ImageIt was such a pleasure to participate in this show curated by Jennifer Scheuer, Allison Olmstead and Katie Woodby. If you missed the opening, view it virtually here.

The print and paper exhibition “Out of the Frame, Off the Wall” at Gallery 1010 will exhibit artists whose work utilizes non-traditional forms of display that do not easily exist within the frame, or are of a sculptural nature , to create oversized or three-dimensional works of art. Each artist translated the use of paper in a unique way, and the exhibition will include: paper-casting, book-works, layered paper with cut-outs, 3D computer modeling, a printing wheel, preserved specimens, sewn paper, 3D optical images, matchboxes, and box designs.

“Out of the Frame, Off the Wall” integrates the print and paper work of University of Tennessee artists with international artists from Wales, Canada, and Mexico, as well as artists throughout the United States including New York, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas, Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee. The show was inspired by the curators’ interest in celebrating the three-dimensional construction of graphic works.
