bringin' it all back home

OK. I'm back. It's only been a couple of years, a change in work situation, numerous projects, and one ruptured (and repaired) cerebral aneurysm later, I'm re-launching this blog, REASON INVERTED, in place of pfarrellartblog, which I will officially put out to pasture as soon as I figure out how. 

I was inspired to relaunch the blog when my copy of Color: How to Use It by Marci Cooperman (published by Pearson, 2014) arrived in the mail. 

Color Theory textbook art design school

A few summers ago, Marci contacted me after seeing some of my work on my website and asked me if I was interested in participating in a project she was working on: a textbook on color for art and design students. Of course I was. 

Marci teaches a Color Theory class at Parsons: The New School for Design in the Graphic Design Department, as well a numerous courses in marketing. Next spring she is offering a Color Theory workshop in Cape May. As she says: "Nothing wrong with a few days in a gorgeous place, where students can stay at a Victorian B&B and learn about color."

Here is some of my work included in Color:
