Local Santa Cruz band, Scary Little Friends contacted me about doing a screenprint for their Record-release party at the Bottom of the Hill this Friday. It was to be their first show at that venue and first screenprint. They got a nice sound,… go check em’ out.
The print is a 3-color print, 18′x 24′ with a limited print run of 75. Copies will be available at the show and I will have an extremely small run for sale on the site in the next day or so. Keep your eyes peeled.

I am finally settled back on the West Coast in my studio space in Oakland. Things finally made their way out of boxes and due to the timing of everything the release of the variants for the Milwaukee Widespread Panic show got postponed but I am happy to say they are now up and available.
I don’t do a lot of variants and due to the printing technique I use of layering a lot of semi-transparent watered down colors, using bold or dark colored paper doesn’t always work very well. For these Panic prints I did a small set of metallic gold & silver coverstock. The paper color is very subtle but the metallic effect looks really beautiful.
Both prints are 5-color, 18′ x 24′ with extremely small print runs.
The Silver print run is 28….. $60
The Gold print run is 18….. $65
All prints are signed/numbered.

This past weekend was the big 3-day Widespread Panic show in Milwaukee and I had the privilege of being asked to do a print for it. The last time I did a Panic Milwaukee print was waaaaay back in 2008,… back when Sarah Palin made the scene, Britney Spears had a shaved head and Breaking Bad was just a rookie.
Like last time, the show fell on the local Oktoberfest in the most beer-friendly city in America so it was only natural to go for the old beer label look when designing the print. I looked at a bunch of old classic beer ads and packaging from the 1920′s & 30′s,.. and of course had to include the Badger reference. It isn’t as trippy or cosmic as I would usually do but for this stop it made sense…. something taste good, feel good.
THe print is a 5-color print, 18′x 24′ with a print run of 620. All copies were pretty much SOLD OUT each night of the show and I will be selling a limited run of AP’s (Artist Prints).

Crafty Bastard is back again this weekend and now it will be a 2-day affair. The premiere Washington DC craft fair put on by the Washington City Paper for some reason is always very kind to me every year and to other friends that come from well outta’ town for it.
I will be making the trek back to DC… my triumphant return, after having moved from there 3 weeks ago, and will be bringing with me some new prints including the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I should have most prints/shirts but do let me know if you have any requests for specific prints….
The event is Saturday, Sept. 28 and Sunday Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. outdoors on the Union Market parking lot. Day passes can be purchased advance for $5.

It has been a couple years since I last worked with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs but I pleased to get the call to work on a print for their big show this week at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn. They just released their latest album Mosquito and wanted to continue to riff on the insect theme for the visuals for this print. I tested a couple different concepts of mosquitos attacking New York but kept going back to the mosquito atop the Empire State Building as a strong image, literally feeding on the life blood of the city.
Prints are currently available below. I did print a few “B&W” copies for those ordering w/ kids. These are for those interested in participating in the Coloring Nook. Please read over the rules of the Nook before requesting a B&W copy. Basically these are for the little folk and only take one if you will be coloring and photographing it. Not for flippers.
It is 5-color print, 18′x 24′. The total print run available at the shows was 200, and I only have a limited AP (Artist Print) run available of 60.

This Sunday, August 4th, I will be set up and selling prints in my hood’ over at Eastern Market in Washington DC (Capitol Hill SE). Eastern Market is a huge farmers/flea/art market that happens every weekend and it took me 2 years of living right next to it to get off my ass and finally set up there.
The Flea Market at Eastern Market is located at 7th and C Sts., SE, only 1 block from the Eastern Market Metro Station (Blue/Orange Line) and runs from about 9am – 5pm.
If you attend and say the “SUPER SALE WORD” above you will receive 15% off your purchase as long as its over $10. Not bad eh? What a guy I am….

A couple months back I did the artwork for Moe’s Summer Camp Music Festival which was used for the poster, T-shirt and a slew of other branding around the Fest.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend but was sent some images from some kind people who did.

I looove all the “1986″ remixes people have been sending my way. Here are the ones I have seen thus far. Totally rad.
