Contemptorary Art Postcard

Here's the graphics for the postcard we're printing to promote my "Contemptorary Art" show (hosted by Corey Helford Gallery). The front image is of my painting "Label Series - Contemptorary (and Still the Loser)". Inspired by the typographic styling of Barbara Kruger, it's one of three paintings I've created that explores the labels attached to this genre of art. The reason why it's "Still the Loser" is because no matter what name you attach to it, very few members of the "real" art world and art academia will ever take it seriously.
