|Sunday Morning LTD Edition Paper Craft Toy |
For the First Friday of 2012, Sunday Morning
joined us at Swagger in downtown Knoxville, TN to show his art and spin some of his tunes. DJ Wigs was also on the decks as our First Friday resident selector and mix master. Sunday Morning has been working on instrumentals for a few years, playing some shows around the Southeast and his homebase in South Carolina. Recently, he has been exploring other creative outlets such as painting, collage making, and even sewing.

His open-to-interpretation symbolic collages are inspired by world culture and built with layers of vintage National Geographic clippings. It all started when Sunday Morning came up on an archive of Nat Geo issues and was inspired to make something from this treasure trove of fine photography. He doesn't start his pieces with a planned idea, rather working intuitively and realizing the meaning and stories weaved into the pieces after they are completed.
In addition to his collages, Sunday also brought up some particle boards he made into portraits of some familiar Adult Swim characters.
This was the first public showing of his work, and it brought out old and young art crawlers of Knoxville and other cities for the opening party at Swagger. People found the work interesting to dissect, and fun to look at. Prints of the works were available in limited numbers, and a few were sold old by the end of the night.

And just to show us what he might have coming up next, there were some custom paper craft toys made for this show. Sunday Morning has future aspirations of crafting a vinyl toy series, and is currently experimenting with characters and classic cut-and-fold/paper doll style toys. His first round includes a mini-Sunday Morning rocking his silver mask and toting accessories such as his records, spray paint, and MPC.
Sunday Morning will be launching his brand new site, www.sundaymorninglovesyou.com
this SUNDAY! Be on the lookout and stay up on his flavors.me
site for links to his Bandcamp, Flickr, Blog, Youtube, etc.
BIG thank you to DJ Wigs, Kaitlyn of Swagger, Tabitha, and Drew.
