The “You Are Here >Toledo” Project
I’m very excited and honored to have been selected to participate in the You Are Here Toledo Project (YAH), presented by AIGA Toledo and the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo. The project will consist of large, outdoor dots spread throughout the city featuring artwork inspired by the dot’s location created by artists and designers from Northwest Ohio. Each dot will feature a QR code and web URL that links visitors to more info about the artwork, the location of the dot, and the artist.
I’m currently putting the finishing touches on my design and in the process of writing an artist statement for the piece; I can’t wait to see all the dots go on display in June. Until then, visit youareheretoledo.com to learn more about this unique project.
Featured Artist on TedFury.com
I was contacted this past summer by fellow Toledo creative Taylor Jaskolski about being a featured artist on his website, TedFury.com. We had a good chat about art, film, and music. You can read the entire interview here. While you’re there, be sure to browse around; there’s lots of great content with a focus on local art and music, plus there’s a online store featuring Taylor’s limited edition tees (see below).

“Watching the hours pass, keeping time itself on task.”
The initial concept for this piece was a literal interpretation of a bookworm which, incidentally, led to a concern with the notion of time.
I submitted this as a tee-shirt design last week on Threadless.com; click the image for more details.
