Halftone Havana
Halftone Havana is an illustrated publication I developed through the Norman Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies Fellowship. The project stitches together biographies of intersecting illustrators, legacies of creative communities, and enduring visual traditions whose trajectories were ensnared and altered by shifting relationships between the United States and Cuba throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Through telling these stories and examining illustrated symbols of representation used during eras of isolation and eras of communication, the publication considers the effects that various forms of distance can have on an illustrator tasked with depicting a foreign subject. Halftone Havana has been acquired by the TL;DR Zine Archive at the Sam Fox School at Washington University in St. Louis, and included in DB Dowd Modern Graphic History Library and Archive.
