Hello! I'm called Melvin. I do several things! I'm an independent artist, majordomo for multi-award-winning Pinhook Karaoke, social media manager for Flash Chorus, I ran social media for Dave Hall's successful election campaign (Fall 2018), and I'm Senior VP of Marketing and Social Media for GG Equine!

My contribution to scholarly discourse, "Cosmopolitan Friendship in James Boswell’s 'Journal of a Tour to Corsica,'" can be found in "1650-1850: Ideas, Aesthetics, and Inquiries in the Early Modern Era" (vol 20, October 2013).

As for creative pursuits, I made album art for two benefit albums in 2020: one for Durham's Accordion Club and one for One Fair Wage. The latter was first issued digitally by Paper + Plastick.

See my latest pieces by following the #artmelvin tag on Instagram! Three of my pieces were published in the "Raleigh Review" (vol 3, 2012-2013), and I have an online art shop open at Redbubble!
