The Story behind the "More Love Please" print...
As a local artist/photographer in Downtown Denver, and I had been feeling such a desire to do something postive and had been trying to figure out how I could give back and support these causes that I care deeply about, using my photography. My work has been inspired heavily upon old neon signs and urban landscapes throughout the years, so I was obviously drawn in that direction. I soon realized that I wanted to create something specific to mark this time and hopefully raise some money for important organizations that are already making change happen and spreading love in so many ways. And then I realized that sometimes ya just gotta just make your own NEON SIGN with the message that YOU want! I have always been a big fan of the iconic Benjamin Moore sign that stands strongly in the heart of Downton Denver so I decided to use it as a backdrop for my own message of hope. I collected neon letters from images of iconic signs that I have photographed all over the United Statets, did some photoshop magic, and now it lovingly says “More Love Please” instead! The fundraising effort was born!
I am now selling a limited run of signed and numbered fine art prints, with all proceeds of the print sales being split between local BLM5280, One Colorado, and Denver Health COVID-19 Response Fund organizations.
Over the past few weeks, I ramped up the awareness of my art fundraising campaign with poster versions of this inclusive image and message of love and asked local businesses of the same mindset and values, to hang them in their windows to help push the initiative and to show solidarity. My hopes were, and still are, that people will notice the poster, use the hashtag #MoreLovePleaseDenver (tag the business too, so that everybody gets a little love} and we raise a bunch of money for these great organizations & efforts.
Thank you for your interest and love of this effort and my photography. Your support is everything!
The limited number “More Love Please” prints are printed on a beauitful 100% cotton rag, fine art paper with a slight texture that brings them to life.
