My friend Joe just released his new record, The Falls, today on YerBird Records. I assisted Josh in creating the myspace, which uses some of my photos. Check out the White Pines Myspace, and then go buy the new record on iTunes.
I can’t take much credit for this, but I did just help my friends Mike & Keith put together the layout for Talons’ new album, Songs for Boats. His follow up to Songs for Babes. The typography following the same style as all of his other records, typed on his script-typewriter. The photo is from the recently demolished Chippewa Lake park, and taken by Meryl Swiatek. Out soon on Own Records.
My two favorite record stores, Square Records & Music Saves team up every year and celebrate the season with the ‘Holiday Get Down’. Two bands from Akron, and two from Cleveland, play a show together in both cities. Cheryl and I teamed up (also representing Akron and Cleveland) to make this poster to commemorate the event. These will be silk-screened on French Poptone Orange Fizz paper, and limited to 50 copies. The two cats are Kali and Vinyl, each stores’ in-store mascot.
The new zine is finally complete! It’s 7×7 inches, screen-printed front & back covers, printed on French Pop-Tone Whip Cream paper. Packaged in a clear sleeve, plus a 5×5 double-sided print, button & 2 postcards. Signed & hand-numbered out of 100 copies.The outside covers are CMYK hand screen-printed, and the inside covers are 1-color magenta. All inside images are black & white prints. Published by Sailboat Press. If you’re a lomographer, please go “like” my blog article. Also, the art show in Square Records is completely finished, with the reception this Saturday. Hope to see you there.
