Phillip Bone & BT Livermore High School Football Memories
Project Description An installation of prints and Mad Libs reflecting the convergence of two separate upbringings and how it has affected their conception of manliness.
Bios BT Livermore was born in Minnesota, and like all Minnesotans is covered head to toe with a downy layer of fur with which to keep warm during the winter. Six years ago, he decided to trade in six months of snow for six months of rain and is now living in beautiful Portland, Oregon. He studied illustration at Pacific Northwest College of Art, graduating with a BFA in 2010. His work has been described as “a modern take on a drug-crazed, 1930s brain” and “vaudeville awesome.” Cartoonish people and creatures abound in BT’s prints, paintings, and illustrations, as well as a preponderance of vintage-inspired, hand-lettered typography. He also co-runs a moustache wax company, Man’s Face Stuff.www.bigtimeillustration.com Phillip Bone was born in 1989 and grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii. In 2011, he received a BFA in Printmaking from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Henow lives and “works” in Portland Oregon. www.phillipbone.com
