Education History= Utility

Utility is defined as the state or quality of being useful.

My second utility box design was installed! It sits at the corner of Los Robles and Walnut at the edge of the Playhouse District in Pasadena. It honors investment in education, reflecting and remembering the history of what once stood on the corner opposite its position, in sketchy line, stitched at the seams.

Big thanks to the wonderful Playhouse District Association  for sponsoring the project and so much beautiful public art in the district. 

Thank you also to WrapAds in Pasadena for the amazing print and installation work!

"Local Hero" Canvas Tote Bag

This tote bag was a commissioned version of my Local Hero painting of the Colorado Bridge here in Pasadena. The wonderful Organization licensed this vector version of my painting to be screen printed on tote bags and given out to administrators at their national meeting this summer. They also produced a t-shirt, which I have yet to photograph.

Thank you IELTS!
