The Dead Fly Project is a series of one hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures, whatever - depicting a dead fly - same fly - over and over again - but different each time by Beverley Conrad. She experiments with different mediums and executes them according to her whim at the time. Sometimes they're pretty, sometimes scary, sometimes funny, sometimes political, and sometimes a fly is just a fly.

Dead Fly 96 Apparel
Dead Fly 96 Apparel
Acrylic stamp on white cotton
All this stamping going on! Although I looked up how to do a silk screen, it really was beyond anything I could do, so as a way of creating some Dead Fly apparel, I stamped a white T shirt with a Dead Fly stamp from Dead Fly 94. Starving artist that I am, I hesitated to buy a brand new T shirt for this project and instead went to our local thrift shop to look for a suitable one at a price I could afford. The picture hardly shows off its true beauty so at some point I'll get someone to model it. It's a one of a kind. I don't have any intention of doing a bunch of them and starting a Dead Fly clothing line at this time. But I'll let you know if I change my mind.

Dead Fly 93 - Froggy Goes Holiday Shopping
The third, well, fourth actually if you include the Thanksgiving card (#41), in a series of Holiday cards I make for my family and a few close friends, here we have Froggy out doing her holiday shopping. This as well as the others are now available as greeting cards and proudly displayed at The Arts Underground* in Lewisburg, PA on a rotating card rack, an investment I made so as to get some money for the project till I have that big show and start selling off the individual pieces. To see the others in the card series go back to Dead Flies 41, 42, and 73.
