I’ve got to plug my long-time buddy John’s big project Fifty-Nine Parks. It’s the companion project to the now-getting-famous National Poster Retrospecticus, which is the genius idea of a traveling show of show posters. Fifty-Nine Parks is the follow up print series which matches prominent poster artists with a National Park. It’s been out in the world for about a year now and the results are AMAZING.
As a big fan of the National Parks (I’m sure I’ll post more about this at some point) and of so many of these artists, I can’t see any reason for everyone not to drop what they’re doing and pick up a few of these prints. Check it out!!
Well, here we are… I’ve been talking about setting up a website for myself for the better part of a decade. It seems bizarre nowadays, but I’ve actually landed jobs with an old-fashioned printed portfolio and never had a specific need to put together an online gallery.
However, I’ve always wanted to have some type of archive set up. I don’t often make New Year’s resolutions, but I quietly promised to myself that 2016 was going to be the year I pulled a site together. And finally, on the last day of December, I’m ready to turn the “Maintenance Mode” switch off. Sure there’s some descriptions left to include and a slew of old flyers to post, but I’ll get there… I think.
