Josh Ritter – Feb 16th Posters

If you’re coming to see Josh Ritter, during his winter tour, in Cincinnati, we’ve got a special treat in store. I figured I’d show some love to my former-hometown. So I talked with everyone over at team-Josh (huge thanks to Brian & Darius), and we’ll have some posters for just that show. Here are a few sneak peeks. I’ll post more details after the show, and will (maybe) have a small amount of leftovers for sale. I just finished printing these today, and they are signed & hand-numbered out of 50.

Arkham Tattoo Website

We just launched the new website for Arkham Tattoo, here in Akron. I worked with Steve to create a full site with a wordpress-based CMS, so all of the guys from the shop can consistently update their portfolios as they need to. Check it out!

The Sketchbook Project 2011

I finally completed my submission for The Sketchbook Project 2011. I chose the theme This is Not a Sketchbook because I anticipated using the book for much more than just sketching. I am a big fan of incporporating found materials into these books, as well as utilizing many other mediums. The complete list of mediums in this book includes: Ink, Graphite, Colored-Pencils, Bleach, Gouache, Silk-Screen, Polaroid Transfer, Gel Medium Transfer, Photography & Collage. You can see the entire book below, but please consider seeing it in-person, if the tour comes nearby!

Dirty Birds T-Shirt

It’s been a little over a year since The Dirty Birds released How the Cause Became the Cure. And in September, they successfully raised over $7,000 through Kickstarter to make a new music video. As a reward for donating toward the video, some people will receive this shirt, which I just finished helping them put together, to match the artwork we created for the previously-mentioned album.

Toddland <3’s C.S. Wagers (both of us)

I spent pretty much my entire childhood on 800 acres of farmland in Kentucky with my dad. I credit these experiences a lot towards the development of my preferred aesthetic within my work. My pops is one of the baddest-ass men I have ever met, and I’m proud to share the same name as him. So, it was perfect that I got his Christmas gifts from my pals over at Toddland. I picked him up a deer wallet, and a flannel, both of which he loved. Check out the smallest snippet of his huge collection of historic ephemera, indian artifacts, and taxidermy. Even the rad dudes at Toddland took the time to write a hilarious blog post about it. They may have stretched the truth for a good story; something my dad’s also known to do. Check it out, and huge thanks to Todd, Paul and Cliffy.
