I designed a gig poster for The Walkmen for their show at First Ave in MPLS last month. The design was inspired by their new great album, “Heaven”. The poster is a three color (metallic gold, gray/blue and black) 18 x 24 screen print on heavyweight light green stock (French Construction Cement Green). Prints can be purchased at the paypal buton above or through my etsy shop. I’m working on a few detail shots of the poster that should be posted in the next week or so. Thanks to the band and their management for the opportunity to work on this project.
I recently partnered with the band Destroyer on a gig poster for their show with Sandro Perri at The Cedar in MPLS. The design was inspired by their excellent 2011 release, “Kaputt”.

Prints can be purchased at the paypal button above or through my esty shop. Thanks to Destroyer, their management and The Cedar for the opportunity to work on this project.
I was recently invited by Jim LePage (creator of Word) and Troy Deshano to participate in the Old & New Project, where a select group designers and illustrators are asked to interpret a Bible verse. I was given Acts 2:3. You can see my design here and while you are there check out all the great submissions by the many talented contributors. Prints are available for purchase and all proceeds go to Blood:Water Mission. I also did a little interview about the process behind my design. Special thanks to Jim and Troy for the opportunity to be a part of this project!
I was very fortunate to have posters for The Rural Alberta Advantage and Jeremy Messersmith included in the AIGA Minnesota Design Show this year.

Special thanks to AIGA Minnesota as well as the design judges, Bobby C. Martin, Sarah Labieniec, Bonnie Siegler and Michael Shea.
I recently learned that two of my illustrations, one from the Rabbit Children EP and one from my 2011 music blog post, will be featured in American Illustration 31 and will appear in the AI illustration archive on their site next month. Quite an honor to say the least. Thanks to AI and the judges for selecting my work.
