I grew up around a local newspaper, and remember making type and photocopy collage as a young kid. I loved finding fonts, clippings and shapes on the paste-up boards and magazines, and absolutely loved the idea of multiple copies of the same design stacked in repetition. I learned about d.i.y. punk and how to screen printing t-shirts years later on the second floor of an apartment in Richmond, VA. I still think about my printmaking the same: be resourceful, imperfection is real, design around the limitations, and celebrate that I get to do this for a living. I’ve produced pieces for Hyatt Hotels, Asheville Regional Tourism, City of Charlotte, Kimpton Hotels, restaurants, many bands, festivals and record labels, commissions, and my own retail and portfolio.

Speedball's new Professional Poster Black is great! A good finish on a keyline is so important and the old black used to dry a bit chalky. Big-ups to Speedball's research and development! Also, I'm a big fan of Speedball's Photo Emulsion. I know there are a lots of options, but Speedball's Photo Emulsion has proven to be reliable and effective for me for twenty years.
