Just after the release of his new live record, is a new EP from Cloudkicker, called Little Histories. The vinyl has been delayed by a few weeks, and will be available in January as a 10″ on Milky Clear vinyl. For the art, Ben specified that he wanted it to be “Simple and blue,” and because of the song title Digital Lightning, I couldn’t get an abstract image of waves out of my head. Little Histories will be available for download on December 1st on Bandcamp.
Along with just about every other online retailer, I’ll be having a Black Friday + Cyber Monday Sale in my Online Shop.

In January, my friends in mewithoutYou are headed down under to do a tour through Australia, with special guests Elliot the Bull. Their promoter, Various Artists, contacted me about making a special poster for the mwY’s first trip to Australia as a full-band. We’ll also be printing this illustration on t-shirts. Don’t forget to LIKE the Australian Tour Facebook Page to get the latest updates on the tour.
Black Friday is just around the corner, and I’ve recently worked on two records that will be available for the November 28th Record Store Day. First up is a new 7″ from Prawn called Settled, coming from Topshelf Records. The record contains two songs that were cut from their latest album, Kingfisher, and I illustrated the cover as a companion-piece to the full-length.
Second is a new 12″ from mewithoutYou. The East Enders Wives Maxi Single illustrates the many forms a song can take; from its humble beginnings as a basement recoding, to a somber, string-clad ballad, all the way to the final album track. As a special treat, the single also includes a unique remix by electronic artist Dusty Brown, created especially for this release. The packaging design is focused around an original painting by Vasily Kafanov.
Both will be first available on November Record Store Day. Visit your local record shop to pick one up.
