I was privileged enough to have been chosen last year to work on Chimera 10. Chimera is an art and literary journal that is produced at Edinboro University. The journal is composed of fine art, literature, film, and video. For the tenth edition, music was added, making Chimera a fully comprehensive art and literary journal. Our concept was to take the work and put it back into the environment where you would normally find it. For the section on fine art, we created a gallery feel. We did this by giving each piece its’ own spread, allowing for no distractions or interruption from the work that is presented. For the literature section, we set each up as if it was a chapter head in a novel. We started working August 2012 and the journal was released in April of 2013.

My self-promotion serves as a provisions kit. It contains a guide for day-to-day survival comparing and contrasting the plethora of tools, technology, and terminology that designers and soldiers use on a day-to-day basis. Included is a pouch containing dog tags, which serve as a business card along with a passport, which incorporates my résumé and work samples.
