One Year Later

06/26/14

loveconquers_print_lowres

One year ago today and really exciting thing happened in the lives of thousands upon thousands of people: in a historic pair of 5-4 rulings on the final day of the term for the United States Supreme Court, the justices struck down the sixteen year old Defense of Marriage Act, which denied federal benefits to gay couples married under state law, and let stand a ruling that found Proposition 8 (a 2008 voter initiative that ended same-sex marriage in California) unconstitutional. What that meant for me was that Clay and I (along with thousands of other couples) could get legally married. Elated, I wrote about the ruling the next day here. And Clay and I did get legally married in July. It was a very exciting time in our lives and a time I will never, ever forget.

To commemorate the anniversary of this historic date and to advocate for the legalization of same sex marriage all over the country, I made a new piece of art, entitled “Love Conquers All” pictured above, which will be for sale as a print in my Etsy Shop starting July 16 (my shop is closed for the time being while I am on vacation). Sign up for my mailing list to be alerted when the print is available in July!

I wanted to also recommend a fantastic documentary, which I saw a week ago at the opening night of the LGBT Film Festival in San Francisco: The Case Against 8, which documents the fight against Proposition 8 in California. It’s a gut wrenchingly fabulous film airing now on HBO that follows the plaintiffs and attorneys in their multi-year struggle which ended this day last year. If you do watch, bring your tissues!!

Have a happy Thursday everyone! To marriage for all!

New *DONUT* Poster :: Good Editions

05/05/14

donut_lisacongdon_psu

I am so thrilled & honored to be part of the Portland State University Graphic Design Department’s GOOD EDITIONS project! For the project, I created the donut themed poster above (WHO DOESN’T LOVE DONUTS??) which is for sale for just $25 (A STEAL for an 18×24 inch poster!). You can purchase it through buyolympia.com.

What is Good Editions? It’s the online shop for the Portland State Graphic Design Program. In their own words: “Our intention is to create a portal that showcases the incredible work that is coming out of our program whether it be from students, faculty, alumni, and friends of the program. All money we raise goes to support the Portland State Graphic Design program and will be used to fund everything from supplies for workshops to bringing in guest speakers.”

Screen Shot 2014-05-05 at 6.49.39 AM

Each term, Good Editions features three artists who donate their time and artistic expertise to create a print for the shop (this term, that’s me, and also Will Bryant and Dan Cassaro). I also selected two pieces that inspired me from a pool of work submitted by students from Portland State (you can see those here). Each of the chosen student work along with the featured artist prints are available for sale to raise money.

Screen Shot 2014-05-05 at 6.40.34 AM

 

I hope you will support PSU’s Graphic Design Program through Good Editions! You can get my poster here.

Happy Monday, friends!
