One week from today, Into It. Over It. & Kevin Devine will embark on a co-headline tour, with special guest Laura Stevenson. Ev & Kev had me whip up some special merch just for this tour, including screen-printed tour posters, tour date t-shirts, and a matching hoodie just for IIOI. I printed the posters by hand, and even mixed in some glow-in-the-dark ink, so those animals will pop off your walls when the lights go out. See the full list of tour dates, here.
On February 19th, I’ll be presenting a workshop at the Akron Art Museum in conjunction with their current exhibition Beauty Reigns: A Baroque Sensibility in Recent Painting. Inspired by the work of Ryan McGinness, I’ll be demonstrating the screen-printing medium, and how layering different colors of prints on top of each other can achieve a similar effect. The workshop is limited to teachers, grades K-12. Registration is required, follow this link.
My old friends in Caravels recently announced that they’ll be going on hiatus, and earlier this month I flew to Las Vegas to catch their last show in America. On the bright side, before they go out, they’ll put out one more release: a split with Baltimore’s Octaves, and both bands are currently touring together in Europe. The split comes out next week (1/27) via Topshelf & Bridge 9 Records. The artwork is centered around a series of architectural photographs taken by George Foskaris, Caravels’ drummer, and I lent a small hand helping him with the package design. I also screen-printed a small run of special-edition covers for the tour-pressing of the record, which is currently available on the European tour, on black vinyl. You can stream the entire release, below.
