Henry Ford Academy Workshop Show

For the recent Drinks x Design event, organized by Design Core Detroit, in collaboration with Cooper Hewitt at the MOGO warehouse there was a show of posters created by the high school senior students.

These posters are a result of a social awareness workshop that Mantrell Goodrum and I gave at the Henry Ford Academy in Detroit on April 8th. Despite the very short amount of time devoted to the workshop, the students managed to create powerful and meaningful posters for causes close to their hearts.

All of this was made possible by the efforts of Carlos Estrada, the programming VP and Content Lead in Diversity and Inclusion Task Force at AIGA, and Manal Kadry, the Art and Design Chair Leadership Team.

Modesty Blaise by Jim Holdaway

I recently acquired a Jim Holdaway daily comic strip Modesty Blaise (London Times Mirror, 1970). This specific strip is from the story titled "The War-Lords of Phoenix". Sadly, Jim Holdaway would pass away several months after this strip was published.

Here you can see the previous posts of my Modesty Blaise acquisitions.
