I was asked by Dustin UPSO Hostetler to create the cover for Faesthetic which also acted as the official catalog for the Toledo Museum of Art's 2015 Spring / Summer "Play Time" themed show.
As a kid growing up in Ohio, I created racetracks out of anything I could get my hands on. When I was asked to do this cover, and I decided to make it at scale, and physically build the cover out of wood 6’ tall. Thanks to Ben Derico for shooting it.
The mark was used for all official products through the Toledo Museum of Art Store, including Embroidered tags Tea Towels by Paul Octavious, Puffy Stickers by Torie Leigh, Iron on Embroidered Patches & Frisbees by Dieter Van der Ougstraete for Third Drawer Down Studio, Bandanas by John Contino, or t-shirts by the same artists.
I made small desktop & large wall pieces with the Playtime mark. I also created playful items including toy cars, and acrylic knuckles that could be read as play fair, or fair play.
