Ashland Arts Poster

The kind folks at Ashland University’s Art Department recently approached me to illustrate a poster to advertise their department. Having received a BFA from their department, I wanted to highlight all of the different mediums and processes that they offer for their students. In a chain of e-mails with the department chair (also my sculpture instructor back in college) and the school’s marketing coordinator, they referred to me as one of the university’s success stories, which was a pretty proud moment. I’m glad they thought of me when they were looking for some new advertising materials.

New Album Covers

I’ve recently finished up a pair of photograph-based album covers for two musicians in the New York area. The first is for the new album Ease My Mind, by Michaela Anne with photos taken by the talented Shervin Lainez. The album is set to release April 8th on Georgia June Records. The second cover is for Jason Saltiel‘s new self-released album, Late Bloomer, which includes some washed-out colorful photos by Josh Goleman. Coming soon, visit Jason’s Bandcamp.

David Bazan Living Room Poster

This Friday I am hosting a living room show for David Bazan. It’s not very often that I host a show in my house, so I couldn’t resist the opportunity to make a poster for it. The show is long sold out, but if you’re one of the few people with tickets, then you’ll have a chance to grab a screen-print. They will be in a very small edition of less than 50 copies.

Gig Poster: mewithoutYou & Touché Amoré in Philly

With mewithoutYou and Touché Amoré starting a co-headline tour next week, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a poster for one of the shows. Since I’ll be riding along for the last 10 days of the tour, I decided to do a poster for the show at Union Transfer in mwY’s hometown; Philadelphia. The antique photo in the background is cell block four of Philly’s former prison, Eastern State Penitentiary. The posters will be screen-printed in a limited-edition, three-colors with metallic inks.

Josh Ritter – Cincinnati & Louisville Gig Posters

The next installments in my series of gig-posters are for Josh Ritter‘s upcoming shows at Taft Theatre in Cincinnati & Headliners in Louisville. For each poster, I wanted to tie the illustration directly to each city, and chose to illustrate a bridge from each place; the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge in Cincinnati, and the John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge in Louisville. Each poster will be four-color screen-printed and first available at their respective shows, with the remaining copies in my online store shortly after. I’ll be out on the road selling them in-person at the merch table, alongside my BFF Brian. [Click the images to enlarge]
