Logo System for Cafe Taza

I don't know why I haven't posted this before, but the logo system for my tiny neighborhood cafe is one of my favorite projects of the last 12 months. It took a while for the various elements to come together and there is still the website to do, and some other promotional materials. I really love this place, I've been a regular there for the last couple years. It's so small that you can't really have a private conversation so everybody has to interact. You end up getting to know a really diverse group of people. Stop by if you find yourself near the corner of Allen and Elmwood in Buffalo New York.

Secondary Occupants in Vogue Italia

One of my spider banner photographs appears (heavily cropped) full page in this month's Italian Vogue. It accompanies an article about Non-profit spaces in NYC. I think the writer found her way to my work through visiting my gallery's booth at the Pulse fair in Miami (Black & White Gallery's outdoor space is non-profit). I'm really excited about this, particularly because this series of photographs, part of To Know the Spiders and Secondary Occupants / Collected & Observed, has not received all that much attention. I still have not gotten my hands on the print copy yet, Vogue Italia is not that widely available in Buffalo, New York. Link the Vogue site here.
