Below are a few editions I did for artist Mike Hirsch. The original drawings, from which these prints were made, were hand lettered by the artist. Each edition totals between 120-200 prints. Hang tight to see where you can get your hands on one of these beauties...

Below are pictures of Emily Joyce's contribution to Detours Tahoe City--a site specific art exhibition in Tahoe City. For this project, Emily had me print 200 silver on black kites that she later assembled with simple straws string and paper clips. A corresponding container was set up on the beach, to "invite the viewer to step out of her passive role as audience member and become a participant in the creation of the artwork. Joyce upends the notion of an artwork’s static site by asking the public to choose the site of this artwork. When the public decides where they would like to fly their kite, the work is complete. Like a solar eclipse, the black and silver Sun Spot Kites reveal and conceal the sun on a summer day." More details about the exhibition can be found here.

Here are the Otis, class of 2011, MFA in Graphic Design posters! All 4 students, Cindy Lee, Marina Murad, Sam Siavash Anvari and Sebastien Walker took part in designing this beauty. The posters were printed in both black/white and black/silver versions, though it's hard to realize in this photograph.
All 100--22" x 30" posters were printed on French paper. Thanks to my husband for his major help with this project!!!
