TRUST ME!

TRUST ME! is a collaborative project that I put together at CO Exhibitions in Minneapolis. I asked a number of friends, designers, illustrators, artists and photographers, to give me any piece of one-color work. This work could be a discard, a rejected project or something original for the show. Anything. I’d then take that piece and do something to it, and they wouldn’t see the results until the night of the show. The idea is about fun, process, and surprise. Giclee prints and screenprinted show posters available through Burlesque.

Here's an in-depth interview about the idea, and here are some photos from the show.

Show poster, made of elements of all the pieces and screenprinted on 18" x 24" butcher paper with metallic copper and black.

For the show opening, we made 75 friendship bracelets in the pattern and color of the King Snake, which inspired the colors for the event.
