A simple shot of me is surrounded by some of my own illustration work over a highly textured grunge background. I started out doing some very mechanical industrial illustrations, but have since moved on to more organic subjects, everyday items, and some motorcycle-related themes, in addition to photo illustration, which is a bit of a passion for me.
This self portrait was created in answer to a call for Cuyahoga county artists to submit an 8.5×11 self portrait for a show at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland. The show, The Artist’s Trust, was part of a larger show, Constant as the Sun, during the summer of 2017.
The website for The Artist’s Trust features all of the self portraits, with website information for each artist, and is the beginning of a community project to support area artists.
