Hello! I'm called Melvin. I do several things! I'm an independent artist, current cheerleader for J Lights Outdoor Karaoke (1st and 3rd Fridays, weather permitting), majordomo for Indy Week's “Best Karaoke in the Triangle” winner Pinhook Karaoke (10 of the last 12 years), and social media manager for Flash Chorus.

I was social media manager for Dave Hall's first 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 work in acrylic paint, ceramics, charcoal, collage, pencil, digital art, and photography. You can find my latest pieces by following the #artmelvin tag on Instagram and see what I have for sale at Redbubble and Society 6!

I've done three album covers for independent local musicians, including two benefit albums in 2020: one for Durham's Accordion Club and one for One Fair Wage. The latter was originally released by Paper + Plastick.
