Tomorrow night in Dayton, Ohio, David Gray & Amos Lee will be performing at the Music Center at the Heights. To commemorate the concert the tour merchandise director (and all around great friend, Brian Stowell) hired me to design & print this silk-screened gig-poster. The prints are 19″ x 25″ three-color screen-prints on heavyweight French Yellow Light paper. They’ll be first available at the concert, and a small amount will be available online in my store.
Tonight, mewithoutYou will begin their summer tour in support of their new album, Pale Horses. This time around, the band wanted to stylize their new tour merchandise differently from the last several years. For this touring cycle, I worked with Vasily Kafanov’s illustrations that were used in the album artwork, clipping, re-arranging, and coloring them to function as shirt designs. I also put together a new original, which we’ve dubbed pattern sun, and they’ll also be re-printing my floral designs from the last few months. Go see them on tour and grab a shirt!
Oh, and you can stream Pale Horses in full, below, via Noisey.
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.
