20/20 Follow Up
The 20/20 I mentioned in the previous post is the AIGA Baltimore annual talent show. Twenty designers are given one minute each (that’s the idea anyway) to share their extra-curricular talents with their peers while competing for a one year membership to the AIGA. The prize is not too shabby when you consider the steep price of membership for professionals.
Participants are judged in groups of five. The judges select one from each of the four groups to return to the stage at the end of the night with the grand prize winner being chosen by audience applause. I was a little let down when the judges chose a flat female vocalist covering “Get There” with CD accompaniment from my group—especially having written and performed my own material.
Regardless, I enjoyed my return to the stage and might even look for a few local gigs—although I’m not too thrilled about the smokey bars and drunken hecklers obnoxiously demanding Freebird involved.
Speaking of birds, I wrapped up another image for one of my designologues early this morning, Birds on a Wire
