I had the privilege of being selected as the Art Director for the ninth volume of Chimera.
Chimera is a yearly, multimedia art journal that showcases the year's best art emerging from Edinboro University. Over a decade of Chimera volumes exhibit western Pennsylvanian artists both in print and on the walls of the Erie Art Museum.
This position mandated a year's commitment to our faculty, students and printers. This book was a product of feverish debates with my designers, complex coordination with printers, advertisers, and art exhibitors, frantic overnighters working in computer labs, and some of my first exposure to directorial duties.
Getting to personally showcase each of the 40 art pieces that were chosen from a pool of hundreds remains one of my biggest challenges and a huge honor!
I was also elected a designer for Chimera 8, featured below:
