Here are a few of the projects that came to fruition in July. First is a poster for my buddies in The Sidekicks. They love basketball and gave me free rein, so obviously I featured a basketball-playing dog.
Next, I was commissioned by a new apartment building, The Danforth, and local marketing folks, Polite Society, to create a print for a contest that was raising money for the Humane Society, Country Doctor, and Artist Trust. Along with two other artists, I was asked to create a print the conveyed an idea of local community. Having lived in Seattle my entire life, the image of folks flocking to green space at the sign of first sun--May or June, has always been stuck in my head. Everyone tends to be a bit more smiley, talkative, and spread out in parks and beaches with cheap prosecco and rosé. The design itself was inspired by the Eames film "Powers Of Ten", which shows an overhead picnic scene in the first few seconds of the film. The print is 12 x 16 and limited to 12 copies that were all distributed via the contest.
A couple months ago I found a pretty ugly late 90's Leica point and shoot film camera for $50. I finally finished a roll and thought I'd share some of the gems.
As with every month, here are some of my favorite photos I took throughout July.
