I wasn't prepared for the positive feedback I got about my Polaroid designs. I'm particularly grateful to the kind words of Alissa of Mediabistro, Khoi Vinh of Subtraction and Stephanie Piro. I urge you visit them on this incredible medium that connects us all in a wonderful way we could never have dreamed of when this work was done.
Cape Cod Winter is an original silk-screen print I produced myself in 1962 working with a resist of torn paper and LePage's glue. I added Peace in Bodoni in Adobe PhotoshopÂ® a couple of years ago. Click on image to enlarge.

A commercially printed poster designed for the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in 1972. I worked a 6-month gig in Sardinia at the time and designed this with markers on a layout pad for a printer in Milano. I hope to replace this fuzzy scan with something better when I can find the original.
OK, enough about me, let's get back to the amazing talent of Al Parker who was an extraordinary designer as well as illustrator.
