Click on the link above to learn more about the show and download all three artists books.

A few months ago Otis College of Art and Design commissioned me to do a single-sheet Artists Book for the exhibition Binding Desire: Unfolding Artists Books. The only restriction was size (8.5 x 11in) so it could be printed from any computer.  The book is now available for download and it includes folding directions. There are two other book artists, Hazel Mandujano and Bonnie Thompson Norman, who participated as well.

“Extinct,” is about the evolution of communication and how face to face interaction is becoming extinct. It is a texting conversation I had with my father. He is trying to adjust to technology and learn/create his own texting abbreviations. It is hilarious and sad because the spoken word is fading. I created the images in the book with pressure printing on a Vandercook and the text is hand lettering.

If you are in the Los Angeles area you should check out the show. The exhibition is up till March 30th. If you are not able to visit the gallery download the artist books.

Here are details about the exhibition: “Binding Desire: Unfolding Artists Books is a group exhibition featuring approximately 120 works from Otis Millard Sheets Library’s Special Collection of 2,100 artists books dating from the 1960s to the present.” (from the Ben Maltz Gallery Website)

Here are some pic of my book…

First Generation: A Revolution of Thought

Come out to see this show! A collaborative project I was apart of is on exhibit from March 8th-April 20th. Michelle Grave and Kate Morgan also worked on this piece.  The idea and creation of this project was developed through inspiration from a workshop we participated in with the Guerrilla Girls.  To learn more about our project visit our page http://chicagoshe-mads.tumblr.com/

The three variations of “She-Mads” madlibs will be exhibited in First Generation: A Revolution of Thought.  Come to the gallery to fill one out yourself!  After the exhibition, we will be mailing the letters to Rahm Emmanuel, Mayor of Chicago, as a form of petition and evidence that the Chicago art community is a vibrant and positive outlet for public and political concern.  Therefore, the Chicago art community requires better support!
