Back in December, my friend Tad asked me if I'd like to be a part of a group print show at Vahalla Studios, a wonderful print shop that he and his friend Dan run here in KC. Entitled Show The Love, each artist was asked to give their interpretation of LOVE - love it or hate it, what does it mean to you? In addition, each artist was asked to create an image that is 8x8 inches in size, using 3 colors: Black, Magenta and Pantone 318 (light blue). Needless to say, I LOVE projects like these. I love the challenge of creating something within certain boundaries. When restrictions are set, it forces you to think a little differently. It's a fun puzzle to solve.

Needless to say, I'm honored to be in the show and very excited to see what all these amazing artists have done! It's sure to be a fun show! If you're in KC, stop by and join us for the opening Friday, February 5, 2010. Check out the wonderful artwork of all the participating artists: Kate Bingaman, Will Bryant, Tad Carpenter, Frank Chimero, Jennifer Daniel, Chris Eliopoulos, Matt Hawkins, Hydro 74, David Huyck, Blake E. Marquis, Andy Miller, Dan Padavic, Richard Perez, A. Micah Smith, Mark Todd, Nate Williams, and John Vogl.
Here's a little preview of a part of my print. (Visit my flickr page to see the full image!) The colors will be more vibrant like the ones above, but you get the gist. Big thanks to Tad and Dan for including me in this fun show! Hope to see you there!
