The Seen

Currently we’re casting a net out for what we’re calling The Seen, a blog and potential book collection of comic-art “remakes.” The project we most famously inspired is Josh Bayer’s ROM. Were also encouraging other artists to tackle some of the work that inspires them.

ALRIGHT- CANCEL THAT, and just go over to the REDRAWN TUMBLR BLOG, Go Melissa and Chuck!

  1. The High Springs Historical Society is currently needing a logo for our museum. We are a nonprofit 501(c)3. Is this something you could help us design, if so how much would your services cost?

  2. We are wanting a logo design with a train crossing over a bridge with the wording High Springs Historical Society and Museum around the outside. Is this something you can do if so would there be a charge?

  3. Dear Tom, I enjoyed the article about you in the Gainesville Dun and the subsequent, powerful graphic images and story lines you created of local homeless citizens. GRACE, the county’s one-stop center for homeless services and placement into permanent housing, is celebrating its third birthday on Thursday, June 15 at Trinity United Methodist Church from 11:30-1. It is a free lunch with no strings attached. Would you like to be my guest? Also, your wife, of course, is welcome to attend as well, or any students at SAW. I am a GRACE board member.
