Bernie Supporter Endorses Hillary
In July 2016, I received an email invitation to design a trio of buttons for Hillary Clinton. For a die-hard Bernie Sanders fan who caucused for him in Washington State, I had an important decision to make. After some contemplation my decision was obvious. Hillary's opponent is shockingly ignorant and dangerous, and I will vote for her in November.
I'm honored and happy to support a sane person over an insane person. Check out my buttons and other designers and artists here: The Forty-Five Pin Project
Seattle Street Artist, John Criscitello
Excited to announce that Seattle artist and political activist John Criscitello will be doing a guest lecture to the Cornish Poster class on November 10th.
I've been a fan of his take on the gentrification challenges facing Seattle's rapid population growth, particularly in the Capitol Hill and South Lake Union neighborhoods. His work is bold and controversial, the perfect inspiration catalyst for the political poster projects the Cornish students will be working on.
John will be presenting his work to the Cornish class at 4:30pm in MCC 505. It's a free event, open to all Cornish College of the Arts faculty and students.

Viva La Poster
In the Fall, I will be teaching my first ever poster design class through Cornish College of the Arts and I wanted a place where I could document that process, so this blog was born out of that need. I also wanted to be able to share all things poster related, including upcoming poster shows, designer profiles and random observations about posters I like, and so on.
And since this is my first post, here's a tip of the hat to one of my favorite Polish designers, Henryk Tomaszewski. His style is why simple is so great and says so much in economy of space and shape. This theatre poster is from 1964, the year I was born.
