Children's Mural (prelim sketches)

Over the summer I hope to complete a mural at a church for a children's room. The teacher mentioned she would like an underwater scene. I thought it would be fun, so I started putting together a few character sketches.

IUPUI Greening Logo Contest

IUPUI has begun a Campus Sustainability Initiative and created several contests (for logos and slogans) and openings for grants for ideas and proposals on how IUPUI can become more sustainable.
In March, Dan and I collaborated on a logo and slogan idea to enter the contest. We ended up with 5 great ideas, so we decided to submit them. Just this past Monday we found out that our idea was chosen as logo and slogan for the IUPUI Sustainability Initiative. Needless to say, we are very happy about it! They couldn't decide between two of our ideas, so I'll be working with them to refine any details.

These are the two ideas:

Salseros del Barrio

For the past several weeks I've been working on a few things (logo, poster, ticket, website) for the Salseros del Barrio. They are a student Latin Jazz band put together about 4 years ago by Pavel Polanco-Safadit for the students at Indianapolis Public Schools. It focuses not only on developing cultural pride, self-esteem, and musical talent but also to keep kids in school.

I'm very proud of the progress they have made, not only because of all the presentations and media acclaim they've had, but because the students have improved their attendance and grades.

On May 11, the Salseros will be having a concert, together with Direct Contact, a professional Latin Jazz band, to raise funds for purchasing instruments and other expenses. If you're interested in supporting them email
