Recently, I had a show at LOHIOH down in the Brighton area of Cincinnati. I couldn't have been more pleased with how it went, and in appreciation of all who came out (and those who wanted to but couldn't) I have added a link to the show catalogue. Thanks To All!!!

ARABIAN NIGHTS @ THE CINCINNATI ART MUSEUM
This past January, my art collective FORSUM had the opportunity to spread our creative wings, stretch our crafting abilities and explore musical and gestural relationships by providing all of the artistic direction and production for two of Queen City Chamber Opera's stagings hosted by the Cincinnati Art Museum. Abu Hassan by Weber and Zaide by Mozart shared a double billing for a magical evening of music. SEE ZAIDE PRODUCTION HERE! Everything from poster design, costumes and sets to lighting, subtitles, stage directing and visual effects. It was an epic undertaking - and a HUGE success. I can't wait for another chance to work with all these great people again!

EVOLUTION OF THE LOGO
I started this as a simple finite project, but I have keep it going - every year PANTONE announces a new "Color of the Year" and I revamp the logo to reflect it. You can find the logo under my bio on this page. Long Live Trend Building!
SMARTFISH STUDIO &
This weekend as part of Cincinnati's "Final Friday" I participated in an art project at Smartfish Studio. I have been dying to get these curtains up for months now and I am so pleased about how they turned out. The prompt word of "COMMUNITY" links it to the piece below. I love how the flags in the photograph work with my T-shirts!

A recent trip to an antique mall let me to a new discovery about myself: I am quite fond of black glass. Now, glass has always been cool...I collected beach glass and love old bottles and shiny things, but there is a new tres chic element to a crap load of black glass. I am imagining a great dinner party with all the place settings like the ones above. I think a new collection has begun!

HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE PART TWO: THE END
Here are some images from the MGGM show Aug. 4th. The focus was on the end of the universe. I felt it appropriate to try and sell some shirts for THE end. The image is film stills of the Big Bang in reverse. The Phrase is to the point. Get one before they are gone...and you are too...
I made the display rod as well...

I have been thinking a lot about "the object." I have also been spending a lot of time at the gym. This is having an affect on my work and think it's a good one. I am calling these objects "Studs" as they are clearly stamped. They are looking good and ready for their close ups.

I've always wondered about the possibility of a finite number of faces available...genetically. It's kind of like a big statistical mind f*ck. Like, eventually every song will be written because every combination of notes will get used up...eventually...
So, I notice people who look alike and I wonder if we aren't moving in that direction too. In college we all had a "twin" or "doppelganger" that freaked us out on campus and gave us our first glimpse that we may not be alone. Above you see the freaky resemblance between Tiffany Thiessen and Jamie Bamber. Below is a real doozy...the spectrum of the same face...
