Holiday Sweaters

It’s officially Christmas season, and this year I’ve designed three mock holiday sweaters that are all available now. You can get a screen-printed sweatshirt from Taking Back Sunday, Walk the Moon, or mewithoutYou. Find them in each band’s online store.

Father John Misty “Honeybear” Pins

Father John Misty‘s I Love You, Honeybear is one of my favorite records of the year, so I was thrilled when his management team asked me to design these custom enamel pins for the holiday merch season! They’re literal honey-bears, with a very Misty’esque spin. You can buy the “Death” or “Love” versions separately—or bundle them together with two additional pins—right here in his online store.

New mewithoutYou Tees

mewithoutYou is currently out on a co-headline tour with The Menzingers, and they’ve got two new shirts with them. We’ve got one new design inspired by the song Rainbow Signs, on tie-dye! This is the only way we could talk Aaron into doing a one-color print.  Utilizing Vasily Kafanov‘s illustrations from the Pale Horses artwork, I clipped, re-positioned, and flourished the drawings to make up these new compositions for apparel. Marking my 24th and 25th shirt designs for this band, far exceeding any other band I’ve worked with over the years. Pianos Become the Teeth and Restorations makes for a stacked show every night, so be sure and catch this tour if it’s coming near you.
