Gallery invitation created for Creative Postcard Club:

Japanese Manhole Covers postcard

The assignment this round was to design a gallery invitation featuring our own work. I recently took my first trip to Japan and became fascinated with their incredibly artistic manhole cover designs, so I started shooting them (though not early enough in my trip, unfortunately). When viewing them all in a group, I could imagine shooting even more and creating quite a collection that could serve as an art exhibit or as posters. The manhole image on the invitation has been altered in color in Photoshop. I wanted to punch the image up to make it look more mysterious and grab one's attention. Since the postcard is so small, it wouldn't have done the original manhole covers justice to have more than one image on the invitation, so I went for one dramatic image. It would be fun to have the straight unaltered images along with Photoshop treatments in a gallery exhibit. The gallery info on the card design is really lacking in information, but if it were a real show, I'd obviously have more contact and location information.

See the Japanese manhole cover photos I took.


May/June 2004

Visited Japan for 10 days, spending time in Tokyo and Kyoto with a side trip to the small town of Nara. I also photographed Japanese manhole cover designs. I have posted a lot of images to my site. Visit Japan!


January 2003-March 2004

I've been doing quite a bit of work involving book publication over the past year. I designed the cover for Stephen G. Moyer's book "Distressed Debt Analysis: Strategies for Speculative Investors" as well as helped with edits. The book should be going to press in November 2004 and will be available on Amazon as well as with J. Ross Publishers
