Banana. Banabas. Bananba. (Aka, I get a piece of fruit with my takeout lunch at work and lately I’ve been drawing on the peels before eating them.)

heya! As mentioned a second ago, I haven’t been getting notifications :/ the artwork’s been down for a couple months but I have it over at my studio, Riopelle, at 1492 Gratiot. We’ll be open to the public the weekend after this one if you want to drop by. :)
Anonymous said: Hi i have my art exam next week amd my imaginative topics are 'in and out','foldings', friends, 'firstlight' and street scene. I have to draw and paint on one of these. So can you tell me what can i draw and paint really fast and really nice?
woah — just saw this! I’m so sorry, I haven’t been getting message notifications, apparently. :( I’d vote either in & out or ‘first light’, there’s a lot you can do with rendering and light & shadow.
Assorted type doodles from the last several months. I like drawing on coffee cups a lot.

Here’s some stuff I’ve been doing for the Chelsea Art Market’s social media - these are all set to post at the time indicated in the photo, to break up all of our posts about artist displays & bios.
More from Impact48. (Now, with more group photos!)
I absolutely love the mocked-up version that the Team Detroit portion of our team put together — I hope Whitdel ends up printing some of them so I can see them in real life.
So I got to participate in Impact48 this weekend, sponsored by AIGA detroit — if you’re not familiar, they select a bunch of designers who come together and create branding, etc for awesome nonprofits who can’t afford design services.
It was a total blast, and i cannot believe how much we got done for Whitdel arts, the client, in two days. We had Basia, Emily, and Joe from Team Detroit, Dylan / wedge detroit, Marc (student designer), Jessica (art director/designer for catalogs), Antonio (freelancer/printmaker), and other people whose names I am bad at, oop.
Bonus: we got “paid” in literal mountains of food (like, my fridge is full of shawarma and doner kebab and sliders and bagels and pizza and salad), and also —- my logo was the one that we chose to make the final identity! So that made me feel pretty cool, because sometimes I feel a bit self conscious as a self taught designer. YAAAY.
If your city does this, you should do it— it was so rewarding and it was so cool to meet and work with awesome designers I wouldn’t have necessarily been on a team project with.
After nearly a year of work on both the web & print presence for the “Saving Daniel Rhodes” show at the River Gallery, it’s UP and we’re done. Whew.
I did mostly the design & social media end of things, and we had approximately 0 allotted time to do each thing — so it was a pretty epic learning experience in trying to put out a nice consistent image as quickly as humanly possible.
Also, we sold something like 30 thousand dollars worth of art so far, and most of it benefited two local organizations in Chelsea, so that’s neat too.
Sorry, you guys — I left my blog logged in at work and it got a ton of reblogs posted to it.
It’s all deleted now Q____Q Whoops.
