Quimby’s is one of my favorite places in Chicago. I’ve spent countless hours perusing their comics and wonderful, strange books. I am truly thankful to take part in this event and hope to see you there!

TEN x TEN: Collaboration between Artists & Musicians

Ten Chicago printmakers chose their favorite Chicago musical artists and bands to each record an original song for a compilation. Each printmaker will create a 10″ x 10″, 3-color print inspired by the song they commissioned. The final package will feature a suite of ten fine art prints and a ten song compilation of exclusive tracks.

For this project, I teamed up with a very talented musician and artist in Chicago, Max Alexander. Here is a photo of *just* printed 300 completed two-color prints, drying:

Participating artists were asked to create posters in the style of WPA-era posters of the 1940’s. The goal is to raise awareness of certain social/political/environmental issues of today. The posters will be distributed in public spaces, donated to educators and workshops, and exhibited on April 16th at EXPO 72 / Chicago Tourism Gallery
