My DNC donkeys are finally complete and the convention is in full swing here in Philadelphia.Read More
I have been lucky enough to be chosen as one of the artists for the upcoming Democratic National Convention ! The DNC will be here in Philly from July 25-28. The Donkeys are life-size fiberglass casts of the animals, which will arrive at our studio painted grey. There are about 30 artists, found by ArtJawn, who will be painting the donkeys. Our concept sketches were due recently, and I thought I would share them with my friends, many of whom are democrats and also love art. I am SO happy with the random states I was assigned: New York and Montana!! :) The project will be installed around Philadelphia by July 1, and there will be an App where you can look for the donkeys around the city "scavenger hunt" style:
Montana Side 1: I incorporated the large bear head, a mountain range in beautiful blues and purples, and a skier on the rear haunch of the donkey. The head of the donkey is a night sky, milky way galaxy, different colors. On the legs of the donkey there are ski tracks underneath the skier, the other leg is grass under the bear's paw.
For the past few weekends I had been working on a food truck for Lunchbox Philly. Lots of people came up to talk to me about the truck wanting to know about it. The food truck serves different variations of gourmet peanut butter and jelly! mmmm! The truck will be in West Philly and North Philly, as far as I know. Check them out on social media...@LunchboxPhilly Below are some process photos to finish. Enjoy!
Doing a little work for Cult Classic Goods based here in Philadelphia. Check out their site. This design I illustrated, colored, and color-keyed is for the line's new jackets which are coming out shortly. I was also featured on their blog, check it out!
