This past saturday was the 10 year anniversary show for ISM:A Community Project. Some of my closest friends and family came out to celebrate the show’s opening and award ceremony with me. I was honored to be in the list of founding “architects”, those who contributed to the development of ISM over the last 10 years.
I received this limited print by artist Aaron Kraten who did the cover for the first ever edition of the ISM magazine. It was a fun night with a lot of great artwork. I was impressed by some of the “ISMs” that were done by many of the artists. My piece “Puerilism” meaning, childlike behavior in an adult, hung in the middle of the back wall and was well received. To see the process of how my piece was painted visit here.
Although my friends said mine was the best, haha, here are some of the ones I really enjoyed.
Another cool aspect was getting to see the logo I designed, alllllllll over the place! I had designed the new ISM relaunch logo earlier this year, and it turned out really nice, and I was very happy to see it in print. They had a large window graphic, information wall sheets, and of course on the cover of the 10 year anniversary edition book. I also got to see a splash on the back of a newsletter from my alma mater, CSUF.
I’m happy for the turnout for the ISM 10 year anniversary show, proud of the the projects they do, and I wish them even more success in the future. For more information on how you can get involved, visit www.ismcommunity.org
