Civic Duty

Tomorrow night (Friday, Nov. 16th 2012) I'm in this show opening at the Northside Workshop in St. Louis. It's called "St. Louis: A Collective Declaration" and is a show of banners / reimagined city flags by 18 locals printmakers.  It was my first attempt at screenprinting on clear acetate, and the results are interesting, I think. That is a white kitten fur static clung / embedded in that tentacle.

The magazine's color palette:
2 possible graphic directions:
The blueprint sketch, which ended up being sort of a composite of the 2 ideas:
Final art in the magazine !!! Let's all go get some coffee.
