tanner squash

At Tanner Squash, we are passionate about two things: art and social justice. Established on the premise that one picture can speak a thousand words, we aspire to communicate to millions, a message that inspires, empowers and engages through original artwork and photography.

First, we are people. We are smart, funny, passionate and dedicated, sometimes overwhelmed but always resilient. We are spirited, committed and ready to focus our attentions to the cause at hand.

Second, we are artists. Fine artists, graphic artists, musicians and photographers. We draw, design, compose and photograph. Many of our original works can be found in the illustration and photography galleries.

Third, but many times first, we are activist, working at the forefront of st. louis’s social movement to fight injustice locally. We are everyday hard working people with passions for creativity and hearts that seek righteousness. We are Tanner Squash. We r creative people.

Still Kicking!

I haven’t posted in while. Not because I don’t love you all but because I’ve been so busy. Between illustrating a childrens book, designing characters for an online cartoon series and creating an 12x3ft hand painted banner, I haven’t had the time to post. To heavy my load, I’m now a full time graphic communications student.  Posts may not come as frequently as they have been in recent weeks, but i do plan to share all of my educational experiences and learnings through this blog.

So Nothing too heavy here, I just wanted to let folks know that tanner is still alive and still apart of the WordPress community. Here’s a couple of new photos to show that I’m still kicking!

I don’t have a srl camera but I blurred the backgrounds of these photos in Gimp to give them an srl look. I will download a screen shot application, and my next post will be a tutorial on how to achieve this slr affect in Gimp. Sound Okay? Okay. Enjoy!
