There were over 2,000 people at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit this year, the biggest ever! With Nate Mullen, Evan Bissell, and Juan Martinez, I helped coordinate the Transformative Art Practice Space, which hosted workshops on silkscreening, comic making, the art of telling stories, and collaborative design. The workshops ranged from hectic and hands-on to thoughtful round-tables. In this photo is a banner made during Santiago Armengod's workshop on graphic campaigns.
