Davonte Johnson, our amazing video designer, created the feel of a old time super scratchy film projector being shown to our loyal policies. Our bar featured two coffee style cocktails and our food spread was inspired by the algae supplements our characters endure, clearly ours were far more delicious! All of these visual elements added with the set dressing and layout created a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours supporting and celebrating Our Fair City's Season Four Launch.

In thinking about how to execute this challenge, a couple things had to be addressed. We wanted to make sure that the pattern matched up across all of the various scenic elements. We also wanted to keep any patching at the seams to a minimum. Touching up the line work would be easy but matching a gradient in a space where we cannot use pneumatic sprayers is not a fun endeavor.
We, at Means of Production, had the pleasure to work with Riveli. Riveli is this AWESOME art+shelving company. We created their display for a tradeshow at McCormick Place. This project had some interesting products that we don't often get to use such as MDO. MDO is plywood with a paper side to it. The paper side helped us get a super smooth finish along with the use of a pneumatic sprayer and patience. It's always nice to stretch my finishing skills.
I've finally gotten pictures of the super fun fine art that has been gathering in my studio. I enlisted the assistance of my favorite local photographer, Sebastian.
This was a fun experiment for Sebastian and me both since neither of us has photographed fine art in a studio setting. What i've done in the past is find a nice spot of sunlight and I try desperately to keep my hand steady. This was a vast improvement for me!
Please if you get a chance check out my fine art tab for all of the lovely new picture of my artwork! If you are interested in purchasing and of the pieces don't hesitate to contact me, email@example.com. Enjoy!
