One week from today, Into It. Over It. & Kevin Devine will embark on a co-headline tour, with special guest Laura Stevenson. Ev & Kev had me whip up some special merch just for this tour, including screen-printed tour posters, tour date t-shirts, and a matching hoodie just for IIOI. I printed the posters by hand, and even mixed in some glow-in-the-dark ink, so those animals will pop off your walls when the lights go out. See the full list of tour dates, here.
Here’s a brand new tour poster I just wrapped for Being As An Ocean‘s upcoming tour in Asia. Tyler specifically requested using a sakura branch as the focal point. I’m hoping to do a screen-printed run of these as the dates get a bit closer!
On February 3rd, Barnstar! will unleash their sophomore release Sit Down! Get Up! Get Out! on Signature Sounds Recordings. Barnstar! is the brainchild of my friend Zachariah Hickman, bassist for Josh Ritter and Ray LaMontagne. We first met a few years ago when I started working for Josh Ritter’s team, and I was thrilled when he asked me to do the artwork for this record. Zack wanted the artwork to have the vibe of an old set of playing cards, so I stuck with an americana scheme, and collaged together a bunch of vintage found imagery. You can stream Darling, a Josh Ritter cover, below.
I recently worked with singer/songwriter Emily Hearn on the artwork for her new album, Hourglass. The main theme of the album is time, so the cover is centered around a flower continuum. The goal was to visualize the passage of time without being too literal, so you’ll notice that the flowers are buds on the left, bloom in the middle and die on the right. The album releases on March 10, 2015. Stay tuned for the first single, which features alternate artwork, and read more of what Emily had to say about the record, here.
