I’m a graduate of the Art Academy of Cincinnati and over the past few years I’ve done a lot of design work for them. Recently I helped put together this album that features 21 tracks by Cincinnati bands—a number of which feature graduates of the Art Academy.
Art Academy of Cincinnati presents: Try a Slice! A Cincinnati Music Sampler CDs were mailed to prospective students to show them some of the local creative flavor and share some of the musical talent our area has to offer.
I did the photography and design based on a concept by Paul Kreft. Paul is an amazing guy that I’ve been fortunate to work with on lots of films as well as the Adams County Waste & Recycling project. He directed a documentary film about artist George Rickey that you can read about at http://georgerickeyworks.com.
