Recently, Adam from Manual Dexterity contacted me about sharing some of the stories behind some of my gig poster designs. I gave some insight behind the design of 5 posters: Junip, Jeremy Messersmith, Nada Surf, The Walkmen, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. If you’ve ever wondered about the ideas or process behind these designs, read on. Also, make sure to check out the entire issue – there’s tons of great content about indie bands, artists and labels. Big thanks to Adam for the interview!

I’m thrilled to have the Sea Wolf gig poster be included as part of Illustrators 56, the illustration annual exhibition published by Society of Illustrators. It’s quite an honor (to say the least) to be included with so many talented illustrators, many of whom are legends in their own right.

Best of 2013

2013 music

Time once again for my annual best music of the year list. 2013 saw a glut of amazing albums, probably one of the best years for new music releases that I’ve seen in awhile. As always, it was tough to narrow it down to a small list but, in the end, these were the artists and albums that I enjoyed most this year. I’ve also compiled a playlist on rdio, where you can hear songs from all the artists listed below. (rdio is free to sign-up and, in my opinion, much better than spotify).

Honorable Mention
Fidlar - S/T
Bleeding Rainbow - Yeah Right
Veronica Falls – Waiting For Something to Happen
Mogwai – Les Revenants
Boardwalk – S/T
Coke Weed Back to Soft
Ice Age – You’re Nothing
Julianna Barwick – Nepenthe/Pacing EP
Dog Bite – Velvet Changes
Waaves – Afraid of Heights
Alpine – A is for Alpine
Major Leagues – Weird Season
Shark? – Savior
Widowspeak – Almanac
Jagwar Ma – Howlin

Here is a new poster I recently designed with Best Coast for their July 31st show @ First Ave with local (MPLS) band Prissy Clerks. The poster is an 18 x 24 three color screen print (black, white, orange) on 100# C French Blu Raspberry stock. Prints are for sale in my etsy shop. There are also a few autographed prints signed by Bethany and Bobb that will be up in my store very soon.
