I wanted a design that had a bright orange and a deep cobalt blue as the color scheme. I created a series of little squares, each slightly different. I like the colors but the overall print reminds me of an architectural diagram of a city with its buildings and streets. Maybe this could be Paris?
On March 17th, The Los Angeles County Arts Commission held a panel discussion at Standard Sculpture as part of their Open Office Hours series. The topic was Materials and Collaboration and the discussion was about the making of “A Healing Home” for Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital. The Outpatient Clinic’s grand opening is scheduled for May 2014.
Below is a description of the event along with some photos.
Artist Dominique Moody has just completed her largest public artwork to date, an assemblage piece comprised of found objects, reclaimed wood and reprinted archival photographs. Join us for our next Civic Art Open Office Hours event and hear from the individuals who worked with Moody to complete the project. This presentation is an opportunity to learn how collaborations can allow you to dream big and will address the considerations necessary to make collaboration successful.

I have been creating a series of digital posters that explore pattern, color, repetition and scale. Here is one of the posters screen printed on recycled chipboard. While the chartreuse didn’t print as bright as I’d have liked on the chipboard base, I think the design has potential. More posters to follow in the coming weeks.
Permaset is featuring stories on eco-friendly screen print shops using their inks. For this article, I interviewed Friendly Arctic Printing and Design out of Nashville, TN. You can read the article here.
South Gate residents will learn poster printing tomorrow. The workshop, which will be held at the South Gate Park, is sponsored by the County of Los Angeles Public Library Leland R. Weaver branch. The workshop is free and runs from 12:00pm-3:00pm. All ages are welcome. All supplies will be provided.
A two-color owl will be printed on recycled chipboard. Depending on the age of the participants, the owl can be cut into a hanging mobile, used as a coloring book or folded in half so the story of the owl can be told on the inside pages. I designed a simple owl and screen printed a few to test! I may change the eyes to be Permaset’s Glow Orange so the owl looks like their eyes are glowing.
Come join us tomorrow at the South Gate Sports Center, 9520 Hildreth Avenue, South Gate, CA 90280
