As part of their "Shared Perspectives" gallery project for Portland Design week, in collaboration with Cinco Design and Smith Optics, I was sent a set of filters utilizing Smith's "Chromapop" lenses and asked to illustrate the phrase "Life Beyond Walls". With only 36 hours to execute, and with no budget, I rallied the troops, took inventory of what we had available and headed to the desert.
A couple cases of Coors, a $150 Craigslist-score Benz and one sunny afternoon later, we not only pulled out enough imagery to suit the needs at hand, but we also scored ourselves the wrap-around cover of the event zine and sold out of prints almost immediately at the gallery event.
Projects like this always serve as a welcome reminder of why I got into doing what I do --- because it's a damn good time.
