Emily Hearn – Volcano

“Beauty Reigns” Workshop at Akron Art Museum

On February 19th, I’ll be presenting a workshop at the Akron Art Museum in conjunction with their current exhibition Beauty Reigns: A Baroque Sensibility in Recent Painting. Inspired by the work of Ryan McGinness, I’ll be demonstrating the screen-printing medium, and how layering different colors of prints on top of each other can achieve a similar effect. The workshop is limited to teachers, grades K-12. Registration is required, follow this link.


Caravels & Octaves Split

My old friends in Caravels recently announced that they’ll be going on hiatus, and earlier this month I flew to Las Vegas to catch their last show in America. On the bright side, before they go out, they’ll put out one more release: a split with Baltimore’s Octaves, and both bands are currently touring together in Europe. The split comes out next week (1/27) via Topshelf & Bridge 9 Records. The artwork is centered around a series of architectural photographs taken by George Foskaris, Caravels’ drummer, and I lent a small hand helping him with the package design. I also screen-printed a small run of special-edition covers for the tour-pressing of the record, which is currently available on the European tour, on black vinyl. You can stream the entire release, below.


Being As An Ocean – Asia Tour Poster

Here’s a brand new tour poster I just wrapped for Being As An Ocean‘s upcoming tour in Asia. Tyler specifically requested using a sakura branch as the focal point. I’m hoping to do a screen-printed run of these as the dates get a bit closer!


Barnstar! – Sit Down! Get Up! Get Out!

On February 3rd, Barnstar! will unleash their sophomore release Sit Down! Get Up! Get Out! on Signature Sounds Recordings. Barnstar! is the brainchild of my friend Zachariah Hickman, bassist for Josh Ritter and Ray LaMontagne. We first met a few years ago when I started working for Josh Ritter’s team, and I was thrilled when he asked me to do the artwork for this record. Zack wanted the artwork to have the vibe of an old set of playing cards, so I stuck with an americana scheme, and collaged together a bunch of vintage found imagery. You can stream Darling, a Josh Ritter cover, below.
