Old School artwork now online!

Emmanuel Polanco • 8X10 inches, archival digital print

Old School is in session and all the artwork from the show is now online! Wow, there is some wonderful artwork, too! These are just some of my many favorites. I love all the great scribbles and type in this wonderful piece by Emmanuel Polanco. It feels like something out of a sketchbook. I wish I could see it in person.

Lillianna Pareira • Anatomy, 8X10 inches, paper collage

This piece by Lillianna Pareira also caught my eye. Since a young age, medical illustrations have always kind of freaked me out and fascinated me at the same time. I really like the way she has combined the different pieces together in this and the way the veins extend beyond the body.

Linzie Hunter • 8X10, gocco, hand-stamping and letraset on paper

I cannot help but love this piece by Linzie Hunter. I love her great, fun letterforms, the simple color and the way the inks look on top of one another. It just makes me smile! I especially like the A, B, C, etc stamped at the bottom of the page and within the piece too.

Jen Renninger • Falling Down Failure, mixed media on wood

Last, but certainly not least, is this wonderful mixed media piece by Jen Renninger. The above piece is one of five pieces (A, B, C, D, E and F) that Jen did for the show and I love them all. They each tell a little story and have wonderful Old School ephemera in them. They're like little icons in and of themselves.

What an honor to be in a show with such talented folks! Check out these great pictures that Janine took of the gallery during the opening. So fun! I was also honored to be featured on Type Tuesday today on the UPPERCASE journal. Thank you Janine!! :)
