I’ve been a fan of what Chuck Kerr (Art Director) has been doing over at Variety, so I was ecstatic when he reached out to work together on a story about the uncertainty of 2016 election and how it might affect Hollywood.
I’ve been a fan of GBV for a long time, so I jumped at the chance when they asked me to design a gig poster for their show at First Ave. They put on a great performance, it was one of the best shows I saw this year. There are a few prints for sale in my shop, including a few signed by the legendary Robert Pollard. 18 x24 four color screen print (navy blue, white, black, metallic silver) on gray/blue stock
I designed a poster for Beirut’s show at the Osheaga Music Festival. The design was inspired by their latest album “No No No”. Prints available for purchase in my etsy shop. 18 x 24 five color screen print on light blue stock.
I’m thrilled and honored to have four of my posters included in this year’s 3×3 Illustration Annual. Prints of these are available in my etsy shop.
The CA Illustration annual is one of the best illustration annuals around and I am extremely honored and grateful to have my work included among so many illustrators whom I admire and consider to be the best in the industry. Special thanks to CA, the judges and of course, Kurt Vile.
