Arcana Academy's Jessica Darke to show at the LA Art Show

Jessica Darke, Producer

The only real rule at Arcana Academy is "you can do anything you like, except nothing."

This maxim has allowed me the opportunity to try my hands at editing video, sourcing office decor and furniture, procuring original art, promoting the agency non-profit, Balloon Brigade, and taking on personal, creative projects like the Love is the Ultimate Adventure Magazine and most recently elevating my 52 Pick-Up found, playing card project.

The entire team at Arcana Academy has supported me on this ride, providing feedback, proofreading, and moral support. A friend, partner of the agency, and established photographer, Shawn Michenzi took interest in the project. Shawn taught me how to set-up proper lighting and about camera technique. He even gifted me with the rental of a Hasselblad Phase One camera.

Through it all, I've learned more about graphic design, writing, photography, print production, and book binding.

I'm proud to announce that I'll be showing 4 pieces from this collection next week at the LA Art Show with BG Gallery, booth #825. I will also be sharing my first copies of the book 52 Pick-Up. None of this would be possible without the generosity and support of Arcana Academy and Shawn Michenzi.

Arcana Academy is an independent advertising agency located in Los Angeles, CA. Jessica Darke is the lead producer at Arcana Academy.
