Cleophus Thomas (one of my long time collectors) recently sent me this photo of himself wearing my Bayard Rustin shirt at the SF MOMA. If you aren’t familiar with Bayard Rustin, check out this article and newly released audio of a Rustin interview from the 1980s, recently discovered by the podcast, Making Gay History.

I am a 2018 Finalist for the Sustainable Arts Foundation Award (supporting artists and writers with children). They sent me the most eloquently written, informative (including juror’s notes), “semi-rejection” letter I have ever received.
Me printing on the big press at NIU (15 years a part). Image on the left, 2003. Image on the right, 2018. I recently returned from a week long visiting artist gig at Northern Illinois University (my alma mater). I made a print of Alois Senefelder (inventor of lithography), did an artist talk, sat in on several grad student critiques, and got to return to my favorite college bar in DeKalb, the Annex.
I finished cutting and printing my new Alice Paul piece (American Monuments series). I’ll have the finished piece up in my shop sometime early next year. Until then here are some progress shots…
Decided to do a simple portrait of Georgia O’Keeffe for the Frogman’s Workshop portfolio this year. T-shirts of Georgia available in my etsy t-shirt shop. Georgia O’Keeffe, Linocut with watercolor, 11″ x 14″, 2018.
