Tomorrow night in Dayton, Ohio, David Gray & Amos Lee will be performing at the Music Center at the Heights. To commemorate the concert the tour merchandise director (and all around great friend, Brian Stowell) hired me to design & print this silk-screened gig-poster. The prints are 19″ x 25″ three-color screen-prints on heavyweight French Yellow Light paper. They’ll be first available at the concert, and a small amount will be available online in my store.
Tonight, mewithoutYou will begin their summer tour in support of their new album, Pale Horses. This time around, the band wanted to stylize their new tour merchandise differently from the last several years. For this touring cycle, I worked with Vasily Kafanov’s illustrations that were used in the album artwork, clipping, re-arranging, and coloring them to function as shirt designs. I also put together a new original, which we’ve dubbed pattern sun, and they’ll also be re-printing my floral designs from the last few months. Go see them on tour and grab a shirt!
Oh, and you can stream Pale Horses in full, below, via Noisey.
Tonight in Cleveland, Cozy Up Collective is celebrating the opening of their third group art-show at Native. The theme for this show was yellow so I gladly submitted the poster that Nick & I did for Cloud Nothings last year. Our poster is on display alongside work by Haypeep, Erin Guido, Matthew Labyk, Rachel Katstaller, Justin Will, Aniek Bartels, Trevor Marzella, Danielle Klim, Mai Ly Degnan, Amber Esner, Katie Parland, Phoebe Thomas, Nancy Mungcal, Chris Corsi, Carly Bartel, Josh Chance, Juliette Crosson, Michelle Lo, Christopher Darling, Cara Mullinary, Philip Morgan, Burrito Breath & S. Jordan Fine. Also check out this cool mini-zine that Justin Michael Will made specially for the show!
The show will run through June 30th, 2015. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 12-8 pm and Sunday 12-6 pm. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend the opening event, but I look forward to visiting the show sometime next week!
The touring machine that is Dave Matthews Band are starting their summer tour tonight in Austin, Texas. A few months ago, their merchandise team approached me about putting together a few concepts for their tour, and this floral design was selected for a girls tee! I even managed to subtly fit their classic fire-dancer logo in there. If you go see them on the summer tour, be sure to check out their merch booth, or you can purchase one online right here.
The May/June issue of Communication Arts is this year’s Illustration Annual and it proudly includes the poster that Nick Spolarich & I made for Cloud Nothings 2014 Fall Tour. This was my first attempt at entering into a CA competition, and I was thrilled when I was notified that this project was accepted into the magazine.
