Seattle’s favorite sons Mudhoney, is back after a little hiatus with a new album and a new tour. I love these guys and they have been on my poster bucket list for a while and was thrilled to finally work w/ them. I ended up doing a print for tonights show in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) at the Music Hall and am ready to combat the current torrential downpour of rain and sludge like levels of irony , curled mustaches and quirky attention begging “look at me” fashion statements.
The poster is NOW AVAILABLE in the POSTER Section and is a 4-color print, 18′x 24′ with a total print run of 80 (signed/numbered).
The Windy city was host to starjammers Widespread Panic this past weekend and I got the call to commemorate this cosmic event and create a print commemorating the 2-night run. Panic has always been a constant in my career which has been fun. I have done 5 prints for them dating back to 2007 and love the artistic freedom they allow. They have a rabid fanbase and are great supporters of the poster scene.
The concept/design took on a couple different looks as it was developing. It started off more summer sunshine-y and eventually evolved to a more cosmic vibe, which i prefer. The Chi-town wind god keeping watch. I tend to get a bit crazy with color and noticed the piece started to go a little overboard so I simplified the color scheme for the final design which I feel is stronger.
The print is NOW AVAILABLE in the POSTER Section and is currently limited to 2 per order (to try and deter eBay poachers). It is 5-color print, 18′x 24′. The total print run available at the shows was 550, and I only have a limited AP (Artist Print) run available of 50.
Tonight in Brooklyn, NY the Bottleneck Gallery will be opening up their much hyped “When the Lights Go Out” show which is a collection of prints that…. Glow in the Dark!!!!!! I’ve worked with Bottleneck before during their HBO themed event last year and am happy to see them striving and continously coming up w/ new interesting themes. I decided to take a fan-favorite piece and give it the “art print” treatment, stripping it down and making it glow.
The print is called “Moon Shiner“ and is a 5-color print, 16′x 20′ (50 print run). It will be up on my site in a month for purchase but until then it is available on theBottleneck Gallery website starting tonight.
There really are some amazing pieces in the show so be sure to check out a preview of the work being hung, …via The Poster Apocalypse.
Gallery1988 opened up their brand new Santa Monica gallery w/ a suprise showcase this last weekend. The theme was hush-hush until the opening because it was a good one….. Saturday Night Live!!!!
We were to create a piece based on our favorite SNL sketches or characters. Initially I wanted to do a Chris Farley piece but after some false starts didn’t feel I could do it justice and went w/ my favorite scene from Waynes’s World. And wallah… Garth GAME ON!!!!!
The poster is a 3-color print, 16′x 20′ (50 print run). It will be up on my site in a month for purchase but until then it is available on theG1988 website.
There are lots of other awesome pieces up there,.. so be sure to take a look.
Moe. just added long & short sleeve SNOE.DOWN 2013 shirts of my design to their store. I’m guessing they look fantastic in person,… probably the prettiest thing you would ever own. Be the gem on your block….
