On October 18, 2014, the band Caspian will be playing a special concert to celebrate their tenth anniversary of being a band. The event will take place at the historic Larcom Theatre in the band’s hometown of Beverly, Massachusetts. I’ll be screen-printing a limited run of these posters, with metallic inks, which will be available at the show. The illustration was inspired by a large peacock mural on the front of the venue, and the ten feathers represent the band’s ten years of existence.
The band Guster is getting ready to release their newest album, and they’ve teamed up with L.L. Bean to create a totally unique outdoors’ y experience: Camp Guster. Guster’s management hired me to create a new logo for the event, where the whole band will be joining fans in Freeport, Maine, on September 14 for a full day of outdoor activities – paddleboarding, kayaking, archery, lawn games and more. Followed by a bonfire BBQ and an exclusive acoustic set from the band featuring songs from the new album. The easiest way to attend is by donating on Pledge Music. See my different color-ways of the logo, below.
My friend Rocky Votolato is headed out on a full US tour, playing intimate shows in living rooms across the country, and I’m lucky enough to be hosting one of the shows in my living room in Akron. Needless to say, I couldn’t resist making a gig-poster to commemorate the night. If enough people RSVP to the event, then I’ll screen-print posters just for the show! Buy tickets here.
Alongside their new summer lines of t-shirts and tour merch, I had the opportunity to design a couple of custom hats for The Fray and Walk the Moon. The Fray’s cap is a collaboration with Ebbets Field Flannels, and it’s inspired by vintage baseball caps. Each cap is individually crafted with a specially made wool broadcloth, matching the fabric of original historic ball caps. Walk The Moon’s new hat is a custom 5-panel chambray snapback, with a full-color printed visor, and a custom stitched patch on the front. On the bill of the cap, I used the same pattern from their new Ohio tee-shirt, which we also used for props within their live-show production. WTM’s hat is available for purchase, here, and The Fray’s should be available online in the coming weeks.
This is a friendly reminder that I’ll be in Chicago all weekend, selling my gig-posters at Pitchfork Music Festival for Flatstock 45. For those unfamiliar with Flatstock, it’s a poster show series presented by the American Poster Institute. It is an ongoing series of exhibitions featuring the work of many of the most popular concert poster artists working today. This is my first time showing work at Flatstock, and I’m excited to be splitting a booth with Charley Crisler of 27 Design Co. If you’re going to Pitchfork, be sure to swing by the Charley + Charlie booth and say hello!
