Happy Halloween!

Halloween Decor from last year...
In case you were wondering...Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday ever and I hope that you are able to share in my enjoyment.

You can check out work from my past Halloween art exhibition, Creepies and Crawlies (snakes and Lizards).

Happy Halloween!!!

Graphic Design Questions

Book cover for Captured Justice.
 See more Native American social justice posters 
Before I begin a graphics project I tend to ask several questions to help me get a better understanding of what the client desires.

Here are the questions I ask.

1. What is your business? Name? What do you do? Ideas? Images?
2. If you had to describe your desired/typical clients in a short paragraph what would you say about them? Age? Gender? Style? Culture? Class? Etc.
3. Is there anything else I need to know?

Other questions that may apply

What imagery are you leaning towards?
What are you trying to say with the imagery, that is not being said in the text or business name?
Do you want this type, image, or color heavy?

What questions do you ask your clients before beginning a project? Are they similar? Is there anything I forgot?

I absolutely love teaching art. But to be honest I am not a fan of some of the drama surrounding public schools which plays a large role in why I did not get an Art Education degree. You can check out my YT videos (and many other posts on my art) to see more about how I am still using my art degree to educate and help others.

Art+ India Exhibitions

If you have kept up with my art and travels via my Facebook page then you already know that I have been creating work inspired by my trip to India and you have been waiting patiently for an opportunity to see this new work.  If you have not been keeping up be sure to like my Art Page on FB and keep reading.

There are currently (I plan to add a third option in the next couple weeks) two chances for you to see my new artwork inspired by my recent trip to North India. Both exhibitions will be up throughout the month of October.

Honey Bee Studio Gallery
Reception: October 4, 6-8 pm

Visual Art Building lobby
Reception: October 25, 6-8 pm

Please visit the Facebook Event Page for more information or if you would like to RSVP.

These two exhibitions will have unique bodies of work from me and several other artists who traveled to India with me through the University of Wyoming Art Department.

Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss the stories inspiring my work. I will post soon with more info and artist statements.
