MITCHELL DUNNAM

Mitchell Dunnam sees the humor in things. As a comedian and digital artist employed by some of the funniest people in the Mid-South, he kind of has to.

Dunnam designs the eye-catching posters for the Memphis Comedy scene. A former comedian himself, he takes goofy ideas from clients and molds them into riffs on famous and iconic pieces of pop culture history. 

While his commissioned work incorporates a wide variety of personalities and references, Dunnam’s independent work packs a more psychedelic bent inspired by video games and science fiction.  

Dunnam, 33, was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a condition that results in fragile, easily breakable bones. Think Mr. Glass from the film Unbreakable, but cranked up a few notches in Mitchell’s case. “I have type 3, whereas Samuel L. Jackson had type 1 in the movie,” he says. “To be honest, I never thought I’d live this long to begin with, so it’s nice to be around.”

Dunnam was a recent participant in St. Jude’s The Art of Science, an exhibit that paired local artists with St. Jude researchers. His contribution, Lateralus, presented a 10-foot bone scan of a naked mole rat. Dunnam’s work can also be seen at the WIP Theater, a combination art gallery/comedy showcase in Chicago.

“Good art brings people together by allowing them to embrace a similar concept. When art can invoke people to join together, we can create beauty.”  – Mitchell Dunnam

At A Lee Dog Story, we believe that art is incredibly powerful and helps to connect and celebrate community, showcase values, and embrace the humanity of all people. In order to change the current paradigm on homelessness in Memphis and around the country, we will come together as a community to learn more about the humanity of those experiencing homelessness through a variety of artistic mediums.
