Josh Ritter Pennants

Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band just departed this week on a summer tour in support of his new record, Sermon on the Rocks. When the record was announced, pre-order packages included a felt pennant I designed, inspired by the song Cumberland. The design is a throwback to old americana souvenir pennants like you’d find these days in an antique store. The lyrics mention copperheads, so I took that cue to include a snake in the illustration. Each pennant is hand-printed on soft felt by the nice folks at Oxford Pennant. Gee a show to get one, or purchase one right now in Josh’s online store.

Stream the entire record, Sermon on the Rocks, below via Spotify.


The Party of Helicopters Poster

This Friday in Akron, legendary Akron band The Party of Helicopters will be playing a reunion-of-sorts at Thursday’s Lounge. Also performing are Ghostman & Sandman, Ultrasphinx and Jon Finley (of Beaten Awake, Drummer, The Man I Fell in Love With fame). I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a poster for this show! It’s only a few days before Halloween, so the image is a mysterious haunted-house-esque cityscape in a classic spooky color scheme.

Limited to only 100 copies, and printed on French’s limited-edition Vivitone Plum Punch paper! First available at the show, I’ll have some for sale online on Saturday.

Run for Cover CMJ Poster

My newest gig-poster is a series of spooky illustrations for Run for Cover Records‘ CMJ Showcase, which is happening tomorrow night in Brooklyn. Every year, the poster art is halloween themed because the event takes place in October. This year the showcase featured a solid lineup of artists; Pity Sex, Makthaverskan, Crying, Teen Suicide, LVL UP, Petal, Spencer Radcliffe and Pinegrove. As always, I’ll have a small number of prints available in my online store, the morning after the show.


Mayday Parade Poster

Tomorrow night, Mayday Parade will have a new poster of mine for their show in Sayreville, NJ as part of the AP Tour presented by Hot Topic. The design was inspired by the retracted-style imagery from their new record, Black Lines, and also incorporates lyrics from their song Jersey.

Three-colors, screen-printed on French’s speckletone paper. They’ll be first available at the show, and I’ll have a small number of copies available on Saturday, in my online store.
