I was recently asked to Curate & Art direct / Design the current Issue Of INPUT Journal # 3.

INPUT is put out Twice a Year By Founder and Co Curator Renee Vara, This issue was The "Pink Iguana Issue" and it Featured The Work of:

Some Background: The Pink Iguana
Technology is rapidly changing the material form of the book and its ecosystem. Visual information is now consumed through divergent e-species and i-species: handheld phones, portable devices, iPads, eReaders, tweets, and blogs. The form of the book is near extinction as it is subjected to extreme Darwinian conditions. Furthermore, the “art” and “artist” book is under particular duress as it is distributed via a threatened environment – the art and architecture book store.

The Pink Iguana, a species previously thought to exist only in Galapagos Island folklore, was recently discovered by Gabriele Gentile and a team of biologists; and it serves as a metaphor for the art book. INPUT#3 asks a community of 12 emerging artists to contemplate the Pink Iguana as they consider the art book as an evolving and adapting medium of artistic engagement.

Along with Design i did several new illustrations for the project..
