This is a commission I did for the SVA cafeteria called Moe's Cafe. The project was pretty challenging for me since I usually don't deal with type and fonts and such. After struggling for some time due to my lack of knowledge in typography I asked a fellow SVA student who just graduated from the graphic design department for help. Liz Chan gave me some very insightful and constructive advice, after which the piece moved forward, and I can say that I'm pretty happy with how my attempt at a more graphic design oriented project turned out.

This piece is a portrait of Sasha Grey, as a contemporary Medusa Shield. While on one hand it is a nod to Caravaggio's painting, on the other it is a commentary on the porn industry, specifically in the United States.
In my opinion its numbers (Every 39 minutes - a new pornographic video is being created in the United States; A total of 4.2 million websites contain pornography; Every second - $3,075.64 is being spent on pornography; The total current income of the country's adult entertainment is often rated at $10–13 billion) and effects are rather disturbing. The fact there are legitimate awards for giving head definitely says something about the public mindset.
