Vote on a logo and win prizes!

My friend Melanie and I met in science class in seventh grade. In almost two decades of knowing each other, we've been through a lot together.

Recently, we started a joint project (julytwentyfourth) in which we do design work together over the internet. She's in San Francisco and I am in Boston, so we stay in touch the way of the 21st century, blogging and emailing.

Our most recent project is a logo for our joint efforts. We are down to the last two and we want some feedback!

Help us out and you might win some cool goodies from julytwentyfourth.

I'm debating whether you should know why we are called julytwentyfourth or whether you should be deciding for aesthetic reasons only. If you want to know, and it will help you vote, feel free to ask.

Thanks for a great show, Motherlode Group!

Busy, busy, busy...

I just wanted to check in. I haven't been posting but I have been busy.

Last week and this week was a lot of prepping for shows I am going to take part in, all three of which start in a week or so.

September 11th opens Big Ideas, Small Packages at the Allen County Public Library, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This is a juried show for which they accepted the banana and Thirty-Eight Self Portraits (Because I Wish I were Smaller). I am pretty excited about this. This is the first juried show I have entered in a long time.

September 13th is the kickoff for the Danforth Museum's Small Works Exhibition and Sale. This wasn't juried. Yesterday my friend Anisha and I each brought in four pieces of work. Definitely worth checking out as all work is priced under $400 and 40% goes to the Danforth's Museum School..

Finally, there's A Book About Death. This exhibition runs from September 10-20 at the Emily Harvey Foundation Gallery in New York City. This is a super cool concept in which artists submitted 500 postcards and when visitors go to the gallery, the pick out postcards to assemble their own "book" about death. Here's my entry: I'm number 396.
