Baltimore Love Project/Madonna Party/Force Fed

Here are a few pieces that I finished this week.

The first is for my friend Michael Owen's Baltimore Love Project fundraiser called Innovate Love. The name of the piece is called "Neighborly Love". To innovate is to make changes in anything established. "Neighborly Love" is about breaking the mold and reconstructing. What would happen if our neighborhoods were able to co-exist, bond and build on the foundation of love? When I think of Baltimore, the city that I live in and love, this is how I imagine it.

The second piece is a piece that I did for the Ottobar in Baltimore for a Madonna/Gaga/Britney dance party. I took elements of each person and created a super-human/diva/pop-star. The face of Madonna, the bald head that Britney sported for a minute and Gaga's glasses.

The third piece is a personal piece I did entitled "Force Fed" that will soon be a part of a book project that I'm working on with Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins aka Declaime. I'm hoping to call the book "Baptized in Fonk".
