Portfolio > "Chicago Odyssey" Portraits of Chicago Artists: A Collaboration with Carole Harmel

This was an epic collaboration with twenty-six Chicago artists (including myself and my alter-ego) in which I photographed them, based upon a mutually agreed upon theme or character from the original Odyssey by Homer. I made an ink-jet print of the photograph and gave it back to the artist to complete in their own media and style. Media ranged from pencil, ink, gouache, collage, stitching, appliqué, watercolor and oil. These were exhibited at Printworks Gallery in 2011 and 2012.
