Andrea's Master of Fine Arts Show

My girl did it!

Andrea worked so hard this semester that I rarely heard from her except from seeing her on my caller id at 2am.
Bruce and I went to support and see her work, which was amazing. I love how she was always able to marry excellent design concepts with issues relevant to African American culture.


A project about multicultural children realizing and accepting each other's different hair styles and textures.

I loved this poster project celebrating and natural hair.

I enjoyed seeing my favorite toughest, most feared instructors.

Joe Scorsone and Alice Drueding who drilled typography into my head

Paul Sheriff, who makes Simon Cowell sound like a grade school teacher, but he gets you on track.

I'm so glad she made it through, and her work (and the work of her classmates) was inspiring. I can't believe her level of creativity.

Solider's Story

A photograph taken by a soldier in Iraq spoke to me so much I just had to create some kind of page layout for it.
