Hannah Rothstein’s parents probably encouraged her to play with her food. The San Francisco-based artist created 10 portraits of Thanksgiving dinner as would-be designed by famous artists. Pollack splatters the plate like a 2 year old, Mondiran restrains himself to a linear feast and Rene Magritte insists “This is not a meal.” To see all 10 visit the artist’s website. Prints are available, and Rothstein is donating 10% of the profits to the SF-Marin Food Bank.
When I was getting my start in the business of graphic design, I began life as a sign maker. Yes, mostly with vector graphics and a vinyl plotter, but I lived in that interesting moment in time when the old ways were stepping aside to the new digital age. I had to have one foot into the old world of how we “used” to do things.
