I am excited to share that some of my self-initiated work was selected to be included in the next Project Passion juried exhibition at Minnesota State University. The exhibition runs from February 1 to February 17, 2016 on the MSU campus at the Conklin Gallery in Nelson Hall. Opening reception is 7pm Feb. 1 at Ostrander Auditorium, Minnesota State University, Mankato.
A Medieval inspired ambigram featuring the initials WB and GM of characters Wilkin Brattle and Gawain Maddox (from the FX Network’s “The Bastard Executioner” TV show), this hand lettered illustration synthesizes my affinity for the craft of hand lettering, ambigrams and my fascination with the intricacy of design and stories found in many of the Illuminated letters showcased in manuscripts and books from the Medieval time period. The words in the red ring translate to: He who commits crime, commits sin; and (the short phrase translates as) Salvation through judgement.
"Project Passion is a collaborative effort of the design faculty at Minnesota State University, Mankato and AIGA Minnesota. The Project Passion exhibition series showcases the self-initiated work of graphic designers from around the world. This year's show features typographic pursuits. Letters, numbers, and symbols—the building blocks that make up our visual language system—are finite and yet infinite in their application."
