While living on the East Coast I was able to take part in a slew of events down in Richmond, VA put together by the folks at Screens n’ Suds that combined 2 of my favorite past times… beer & screenprinting. 2 past times that often happened simultaneously. Their events showcased the works of craft & microbreweries and screenprint artists and were charity events for the MS Society. Since moving I haven’t been able to work with them much but this past weekend they held along with Trinkin, an Anniversary party & Art sale at Gallery5 in RVA. Music was heard, beer was drunk and art was auctioned.
I was approached about using a design of “The BeerMonger” I had made for a previous event years ago as the commemorative shirt for this years show. Shirts were printed up by Triple Stamp Press and might still be available if you contact the folks at Screens n’ Suds.
Also local studio BigSecret created a sweet looking one-off wood etching that was to be auctioned off.
For those interested in the the original “BeerMonger“, A couple copies of the art print (16″ x 20″) are still available. Just follow the link below…..
Thanks to everyone that purchased the Widespread Panic – Boise poster released this week. They are currently Sold Out!!!! I have a couple copies in case of any problems arise with the 1st run of shipping, so there might be 5 or so available later.
For those of you more hardcore collectors with a sweet tooth for foil I am releasing a “sparkle variant” next week, MONDAY, MARCH 23rd @ 9AM (PST).

To add to the excitement I will be slipping in a little testprint into 4 of the orders at Random. There is no raffle… no special requests… they will be just be dropped at random into tubes before they go out. Good luck!!!
The boys of Widespread Panic are starting up their Spring Tour this week and will be kickin’ it off in Boise, ID on Friday, March 13th. Being the first poster of a tour is always an interesting task as you want to represent out the gate and deliver something that people will still hopefully remember as a slew of new posters pop up as the tour proceeds.
Originally I was toying with the idea of doing something involving a Bronco or giant horse as Boise has a lot of “Bronco” imagery attached to it but thought the idea had been played out in some past WSP posters and as it started to move along I had no connection to the animal or design. Thinking of the terrain and other Idaho wildlife I loved the imagery and notion of the Elder Shaman Ram that was welcoming the coming of Spring.
The final result is a 5-color print,… 18′ x 24′ with a 200 print run and my copies will be up in the store next week signed / AP.
