Commission Information

I have decided to take commissions, since I am unable to work as many conventional job hours due to my graphic design internship and college courses. My prices are going to be lower than I have previously priced them, on the condition that you understand I can largely only work Thursday-Sunday on commissions and that I have your permission to put these pieces into my portfolio should I choose to.

Even if you can't currently afford to commission me, if you can share this with any of your friends seeking an artist that would be appreciated!

The Start of my BFA Thesis

The working title for my thesis project is Propaganda Then and Now, which aims to be an examination of the design elements of propaganda during World War II and then an application of these design choices to modern social issues which I will be creating.

I will be approaching this as a communication problem, versus a knowledge problem or design problem, because it deals primarily with the communication of knowledge to a new audience. Primarily, this will be written and demonstrated in a way which makes it accessible to a larger audience (namely those of you who follow my work) but it will definitely have an additional appeal for those with an interest in WWII, propaganda, media, and design.

Follow my blog to keep up to date on progress, as well as updates on my other running projects. You can also follow me on Twitter @zekebking and at my Behance.net account and LinkedIn profile.
