In the summer of 2020 Rachael Hammerlein asked if I wanted to work on a project to acknowledge a community partnership between The Fresh Market and Wave Pool gallery. We went into the store and met employees, asked about the work they do and photographed them. I then made this series of illustrations that were displayed where customers checked out. After the exhibition, people in the artwork were able to bring home an original portrait of themselves.
I’m proud of the outcome of this project, and if someone that is seeing this needs an illustrated series of people in a company or organization for a brochure or annual report—please contact me— I’d be happy to work with you.
