Though not a poster…here’s our label design for West Sixth Brewery’s first bottle release! Very proud!
We’re excited to announce a new project here at West Sixth - the West Sixth County Series! For the first time ever, we’re going to release a series of small-release bottle-conditioned beers celebrating the unique qualities and character of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. We plan to release around 3 different beers each year, in extremely limited quantities. The first beer of our series is American Wild Sour Ale we’re calling Washington County. Being the first in our series we’ve named this wild ale after Washington County, the first county created in Kentucky after our fair Commonwealth was founded. 
They sold-out in an hour! And notice the shape made from the negative space of this die-cut label ;)

Digital Transgender Archive
The DTA will provide a centralized hub for transgender-related historical materials, including born-digital materials, materials contributed by independent projects, and information on archival holdings throughout the U.S. and Canada. 
We also created the logo for this project.
We couldn’t have been happier with the process of working this future resource. Elements from this poster will now be broken-up and used through out the website. Can’t wait to see it take shape.

THANK YOU St. James Court Art Show!

This is clearly a very well organized event…and everyone involved was so nice. Thank you for making this weekend amazing!

I was a peer juror this year and got to meet and talk with all the other St. James printmakers (which was one of my favorite parts of the weekend). Cricket Press was in extremely good, experienced company, in this medium. I loved how eager our peers were to discuss their work, their process, and their exhibiting experiences with me. Such talent. Such warmth.

We’re exhausted. The weather was chilly but beautiful and the crowds were huge. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our tent. We were truly overwhelmed by the support.

We also loved our view! The heart of the show.
