mewithoutYou Holiday Poster

Philadelphia’s mewithoutYou will be Home for the Holidays on Sunday, December 28 at Johnny Brenda’s. They commissioned me to make a commemorative poster for this show in their hometown at a smaller, intimate venue. The end result is three-colors, screen-printed on French Madero Beach paper, limited to 89 signed & numbered copies. The show is long sold-out, but if you have tickets, grab a poster while you’re there!

mewithoutYou Crew Neck

Just in time for the cold weather, I recently wrapped up this new crew-neck design for mewithoutYou. These are currently in production, and should hit the band’s online store sometime next week.

Cloudkicker “Little Histories”

Just after the release of his new live record, is a new EP from Cloudkicker, called Little Histories. The vinyl has been delayed by a few weeks, and will be available in January as a 10″ on Milky Clear vinyl. For the art, Ben specified that he wanted it to be “Simple and blue,” and because of the song title Digital Lightning, I couldn’t get an abstract image of waves out of my head. Little Histories will be available for download on December 1st on Bandcamp.

mewithoutYou Australia Poster

In January, my friends in mewithoutYou are headed down under to do a tour through Australia, with special guests Elliot the Bull. Their promoter, Various Artists, contacted me about making a special poster for the mwY’s first trip to Australia as a full-band. We’ll also be printing this illustration on t-shirts. Don’t forget to LIKE the Australian Tour Facebook Page to get the latest updates on the tour.
