Paleofuturism is the study of past thinking about possible futures. How did thinkers in the past imagine the technologies, lifestyles and ideas of the future? How do these outmoded ideas affect and shape the present? I designed the poster below for an upcoming conference about this topic, which will be held at 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville on April 6 & 7.
I had 3 illustrations in this month’s Louisville Magazine. Art direction for all 3 by the wonderful Ms. Suki Anderson.
This one was used for the cover of the “Fit” supplement issue:
Jack Welch wrote about the construction by the skate park not getting the skaters down:
And Mary Welp wrote about the use of bones for broth:
Happy New Year! I have two illustrations in Louisville Magazine this month:
Jack’s Just Sayin’ column is about the removal of freshly planted saplings from downtown:
The other was for Mary Welp’s Dine In column, which was about the unexpectedly cool surprises that can be found in the international food section of Kroger and World Market. My model was the famous Louisvillian Will Russell– owner of WHY Louisville store, founder of Lebowski Fest, and most recently the new owner of Funtown Mountain in Cave City. He’s also a big fan of the lower Brownsboro Rd. Kroger store (aka Dirty Kroger.)
I was asked to design a Jackalope T Shirt for WHY Louisville. Here it is! Pick one up at the store or thought their website: http://www.whylouisville.com
I went to see the Egon Schiele portrait exhibit at the Neue Galerie in New York and spent a lot of time sketching some of his early drawings. Schiele’s always been one of my favorites, and it was really special to have a chance to look at his work up close. I did these three self portraits this morning with some of those sketches in mind.
