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.


Cozy Up Group Show

Tonight in Cleveland, Cozy Up Collective is celebrating the opening of their third group art-show at Native. The theme for this show was yellow so I gladly submitted the poster that Nick & I did for Cloud Nothings last year. Our poster is on display alongside work by Haypeep, Erin Guido, Matthew Labyk, Rachel Katstaller, Justin Will, Aniek Bartels, Trevor Marzella, Danielle Klim, Mai Ly Degnan, Amber Esner, Katie Parland, Phoebe Thomas, Nancy Mungcal, Chris Corsi, Carly Bartel, Josh Chance, Juliette Crosson, Michelle Lo, Christopher Darling, Cara Mullinary, Philip Morgan, Burrito Breath & S. Jordan Fine. Also check out this cool mini-zine that Justin Michael Will made specially for the show!

The show will run through June 30th, 2015. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 12-8 pm and Sunday 12-6 pm. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend the opening event, but I look forward to visiting the show sometime next week!

Dave Matthews Band

The touring machine that is Dave Matthews Band are starting their summer tour tonight in Austin, Texas. A few months ago, their merchandise team approached me about putting together a few concepts for their tour, and this floral design was selected for a girls tee! I even managed to subtly fit their classic fire-dancer logo in there. If you go see them on the summer tour, be sure to check out their merch booth, or you can purchase one online right here.
