The website howstuffworks.com contacted me and asked

an excellent article that will tell you all about how

Gallery invitation created for Creative
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.

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!

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.
