New Collaborative work for "Public School" at the Mast Head Print Studio

Whoa! It has been a pretty crazy month. Above is more new work, this time in the form of two collaborative pieces with my friend Dietrich Meyer. The pieces are for a group show called "Public School: a lesson in collaboration" at the Mast Head Print Studio in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia. This is how the collaboration went: I hand-built both wood boxes, and coated/sealed them with an initial coat of paint. Then Dietrich came in and added some meticulously painted areas with acrylic paint, and I finished off the pieces with more paint and cut paper sections with layered media on it. I had alot of fun, and enjoyed the creative challenge of producing artwork with two distinct voices, definitely look out for more collaborations in the near future ...

Piece info is below:

"Double Dragons"
9.5" x 11.25" x 2.75"
Acrylic and mixed media on board

"Solomon's Key"
9.5" x 9.5" x 2.75"
Acrylic and mixed media on board

There is also going to be a collaborative screen print from us available at the show, we just don't have any pictures of it yet(/haven't actually printed it yet)

Thanks to Shawn and JP for including us in the show!
