Tabloid #1 of many I hope

It’s a crappy image, but I think you get the idea.

Tabloid #1
acrylic, latex, oil, ink, pencil, and newspaper on hinged canvases
2002

I gotta make more of these! This is a deconstruction of a tabloid newspaper. I boiled it down to its base design elements and iconic imagery.

I am a media and news junky. Politics and society really flick my switch. I gotta do more of these.

Hey all,

I haven’t bragged on my wife in awhile. She’s become an amazing photographer and I am immensely proud of her.

Tavis Coburn

Graphic designer Tavis Coburn designed the program covers for this year’s BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards, and they’re retro-cool! Each one features elements from the nominees for the Best Picture Award.

Here’s the cover featuring Up in the Air:

This was an incredible movie and an incredible graphic treatment of George Clooney.

He also did one for Precious:

I haven’t seen this movie yet, but it’s on the list.
