Clinic & London Design Festival present: Gig Poster Power

As part of this year’s London Design Festival, the folks at Clinic will be displaying some of my work as part of Gig Poster Power. For the show, they’ll be showcasing “the best gig posters, past and present, celebrating Clinic’s long association with the record industry and asking some important questions about the future of design in music. In the shadow of the demon download there’s still hope for design in music, Clinic asks ‘is there room for the tangible in the world of digital?'”

Gig Poster Power will be at Clinic 21-25 September from 10am-4pm. To find out more about the exhibition visit our London Design Festival event page here.


mewithoutYou – Southgate House Posters

I’ll be in Cincinnati tomorrow with mewithoutYou, selling these posters I’ve made to commemorate their show at Southgate House Revival with Foxing & Field Mouse. The posters illustrate details from the song Red Cow, including apparition eyes, the cornhusk dawn, and the obvious cow. I’ve included the song below.

The posters are printed on heavyweight French Steel Grey 100wt paper, four-colors and limited edition. If you can’t make it to the show, you can buy a poster on Thursday, right here in my online store.


Two Art Openings This Month

This month, I will have work in two different group art shows happening in Akron. Friday at Summit Artspace marks the opening for The Wild Ones, featuring contemporary works exploring rebellion and its impact on American culture. This show will contain work from Mike Giant, Adam Dumont, Steve Ehret, Kristin Galewood, Phil Guy, Scot Phillips, Mark Soppeland, Bonnie Stipe, Jesse Strother, Casey Vogt, and many more alongside myself. The show will run from July 10 through August 16, with the opening reception happening on July 10th, from 5-8 pm. Click here to RSVP on Facebook.

In conjunction with The Wild Ones, Square Records will also host an off-shoot show, which we’re calling No Comply: The Art of Skateboard Culture. This is a group show is with my friends Phil Guy (aka Burrito Breath) and Jesse Strother. The three of us will be showing new artwork—applied to skateboard decks—as well as other prints & pieces; all available for purchase. These will be on display in the gallery section of the record store from July 17 through August 16, and we’re throwing an opening party on July 17th from 6-9 pm. Click here to RSVP on Facebook.


David Gray & Amos Lee Posters

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.


mewithoutYou – Summer Tour Merch

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.
