My most recent article for Lomography is a LomoLocation about The Heidelberg Project in Detroit. I stumbled on this community art environment during a short trip to see a James Blake concert. Read the full article, here.
Here are two new posters I just wrapped up for Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band. The first is for their upcoming show in Pittsburgh at the Byham Theater. The second is for their short-tour in June. The imagery in the tour poster is inspired by the opening line from the song Bonfire, “got a lot of lovers with star crossed wrists…” I will be screen-printing editions of both, three-colors on French 100lb paper.
Along with the posters I made for Josh Ritter, based on the song Evil Eye, his merchandise manager, the always awesome Brian Stowell, had the idea to also make die-cast lapel pins. The result are these: a silver & blue pin, and an antiqued-bronze with black pin. I grew up collecting enamel-pins as a kid, so I was stoked that my artwork ended up in this form! They are now available in Josh’s online store, in silver or gold.
This is a new shirt I made for mewithoutYou, based on the song Bear’s Vision of St. Agnes. Which tells the story of a bear who, after seeing a vision of the Saint of Chastity, jumps from a cliff to sacrifice himself as food for his starving friend; the fox. These shirts will be available soon on their online store, and on tour in the coming months. I’ve included the song below.
As I write this, I’m out for a pair of shows with Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band, selling posters I made to commemorate the concerts. These posters are doing so well that we decided to put together another design for the April 25th show in Minneapolis. These will be limited to 125 copies, 3-colors, screen-printed on French 100 lb. Pop Tone Berrylicious paper. The image was inspired by the video for New Lover.
