Earlier this year I had the opportunity to collaborate with the good folks at PRIMER to create the poster art for “The Starving Artist Campaign”, put on by Blue A Hair Studio. The campaign has recently launched so I can finally share the work. Below, is the press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Blue A Hair Studio to offer free salon services to artists as part of
new Starving Artist Campaign.
HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pennsylvania – September 5, 2012 – BLue A Hair
Studio, the Philadelphia area’s most innovative and original salon and
spa, unveiled plans today for their new promotion, the Starving Artist
Campaign. For a limited time, artists in search of a new look are
invited to book an appointment with one of BLue’s fully trained,
professional and talented stylists 100% free of charge.
The only requirement? Artists must bring an original piece of art into
the salon to serve as inspiration to their paired stylist while they
work. This way, the professional teamed up with the artist can fully
understand their unique creative vision.
The Starving Artist Campaign honors what Salon Owner, Will Bostock,
refers to as BLue’s “commitment to creativity.” Bostock claims, “The
BLue philosophy is all about expressing personality and letting true
style shine. So much of what we do here on a daily basis is about art.
We create art, we celebrate art, and now we want to give back in the
name of art.”
Salon doors are open to all artists ready for a major makeover while
appointments last. Should artists care to donate their work, BLue will
auction the original pieces for Startup Corps, a Philadelphia charity
focused on developing entrepreneurial leaders on the high school
level. Proceeds will go to students interested in pursuing careers in
the arts to obtain art supplies.
