Father John Misty‘s I Love You, Honeybear is one of my favorite records of the year, so I was thrilled when his management team asked me to design these custom enamel pins for the holiday merch season! They’re literal honey-bears, with a very Misty’esque spin. You can buy the “Death” or “Love” versions separately—or bundle them together with two additional pins—right here in his online store.
mewithoutYou is currently out on a co-headline tour with The Menzingers, and they’ve got two new shirts with them. We’ve got one new design inspired by the song Rainbow Signs, on tie-dye! This is the only way we could talk Aaron into doing a one-color print. Utilizing Vasily Kafanov‘s illustrations from the Pale Horses artwork, I clipped, re-positioned, and flourished the drawings to make up these new compositions for apparel. Marking my 24th and 25th shirt designs for this band, far exceeding any other band I’ve worked with over the years. Pianos Become the Teeth and Restorations makes for a stacked show every night, so be sure and catch this tour if it’s coming near you.
I’m thrilled to reveal my latest Walk the Moon poster, for their concert tonight at The Masonic in San Francisco. The show is only a few days before Halloween, so the guys in the band thought it would be fun to illustrate one of SF’s creepiest landmarks: Alcatraz!
The posters are three-color screen-prints on French’s Shocking Green paper, limited to 135 copies. You can buy one at the show tonight, or first thing tomorrow in my online store. My poster for Walk the Moon’s New York show is still available, as well!
Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band just departed this week on a summer tour in support of his new record, Sermon on the Rocks. When the record was announced, pre-order packages included a felt pennant I designed, inspired by the song Cumberland. The design is a throwback to old americana souvenir pennants like you’d find these days in an antique store. The lyrics mention copperheads, so I took that cue to include a snake in the illustration. Each pennant is hand-printed on soft felt by the nice folks at Oxford Pennant. Gee a show to get one, or purchase one right now in Josh’s online store.
Stream the entire record, Sermon on the Rocks, below via Spotify.
This Friday in Akron, legendary Akron band The Party of Helicopters will be playing a reunion-of-sorts at Thursday’s Lounge. Also performing are Ghostman & Sandman, Ultrasphinx and Jon Finley (of Beaten Awake, Drummer, The Man I Fell in Love With fame). I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a poster for this show! It’s only a few days before Halloween, so the image is a mysterious haunted-house-esque cityscape in a classic spooky color scheme.
Limited to only 100 copies, and printed on French’s limited-edition Vivitone Plum Punch paper! First available at the show, I’ll have some for sale online on Saturday.
