Away With Words
AIGA Toledo board members transformed a 10,000 square foot warehouse connected to Handmade Toledo, into a pop-up gallery. Over 80 local, national and international artists submitted a wide range of art work responding to the literary theme. I chose to pay homage to the classic novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Additionally I created a commemorative poster to promote the show along with a matching T-shirt design. This design was influenced by a 1870 etching taken from the pages of Sketches of Creation by Alexander Winchell. Reminiscent of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Call of Cthulhu and many other tales from the deep.
