Michael Bartalos will discuss his experiences and influences in regards to stamp design and novel project opportunities and their process. He will also share valuable marketing and personal promotion strategies useful to design and illustration students.

Mr. Bartalos will also be talking about his design for the Latin Jazz stamp at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum’s Latin Jazz Celebration on Saturday, October 4th. The Latin Jazz event features live jazz music, conga drum demonstrations, and stamp collecting. The Postal Museum is located directly across the street from Union Station on Metro’s Red Line. The celebration is presented by the Postal Museum and Smithsonian Jazz Appreciation Month Initiatives. Find out more.

While at the Postal Museum, check out the Alphabetilately exhibit opening Friday September 26. Concept sketches and unused versions of Bartalos’ Latin Jazz stamp design will be included in this wide survey of philatelic history and graphics. It’s shaping up to be an amazing show thanks to the efforts of San Francisco friends Michael Osborne and Alyson Kuhn.
