Flying high about this design for the People's Flag of Milwaukee competition. Simply, this design illustrates Milwaukee's connection to Lake Michigan represented by a sunrise over land and water. Using geometric fields of ultramarine light, amber, and aquamarine I finally selected the right colors and shapes after 3 years of referring to this subject. Please check out the People's Flag of Milwaukee Project to learn more www.milwaukeeflag.com or MKE Flag to view more designs.
This simulated world is part of a collaboration with Stephanie Lane Gage of After School Special. She selected 14 Milwaukee-based artists to participate in a unique risograph collection. Each work will be produced as a run of 50 prints. The project will open with prints available with an exhibition at the Lunch Box gallery via After School Special in May.
This lighthearted work was just accepted to the "Waysides" exhibition at the John Micheal Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI. The show celebrating Wisconsin's natural heritage runs from April 3rd to October 2nd, 2016.
