The touring machine that is Dave Matthews Band are starting their summer tour tonight in Austin, Texas. A few months ago, their merchandise team approached me about putting together a few concepts for their tour, and this floral design was selected for a girls tee! I even managed to subtly fit their classic fire-dancer logo in there. If you go see them on the summer tour, be sure to check out their merch booth, or you can purchase one online right here.
Last Tuesday marked the official release of Rocky Votolato‘s new album Hospital Handshakes, and I just recently got a shipment of records courtesy of the nice folks over at No Sleep. I was responsible for the packaging design for the record, which is centered around a series of photographs that document the recording process in Chris Walla’s Hall of Justice Studio. All photos, including these product-shots were all taken by Amber Zbitnoff. Really happy with how this one came out! The US vinyl colors perfectly compliment the album packaging, and I’m excited to see the European version from Glitterhouse.

Walk the Moon is currently out on the spring leg of their Talking is Hard Tour, and they’ve commissioned artists to create a different screen-printed poster for each stop on the tour. Having designed a lot of their tour merch over the years, I took the opportunity to make posters for all three shows in Ohio, which start tonight in Cincinnati. The Cincinnati print is four colors, while the Columbus and Cleveland ones are three. Each print will be available at the merch table for their respective shows, 100 copies available each night. I’ve reserved a small amount of copies for my online store, which will go on sale at a random time on Friday, April 4th.
2015 kicked off with a blazing start, and that’s why this blog hasn’t seen many updates with band merch I’ve been working on. This post includes all of the apparel design I’ve had approved in the first quarter of 2015, including work for Alabama Shakes, Circa Survive, The Menzingers, Walk the Moon* (pillowcases!), NEEDTOBREATHE, Mat Kearney, Gates, Cloudkicker, Prawn, Cary Brothers, and a even a onesie for David Wax Museum’s Suz Slezak. I’ve already got some amazing clients lined up for April, and hoping this year continues to be awesome!
*Walk the Moon designs were a collaboration with the awesome Jason Matheny.
I’m very excited to reveal this poster I designed for Marc Maron‘s upcoming performance at The Royal Oak Theatre in Michigan. As a cat-owner who works from an in-home studio, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to illustrate Marc recording in his garage. I’ll be screen-printing a limited-edition of these on French Red Hot paper, which will be first available at the show.
