"How Soon is Now?"
The Jack White Poster Set includes all 22 of my posters from the 2012 Blunderbuss tour. They will be shipped in two packages. One flat containing the 18X24 posters, and one large tube containing the larger posters (24X36 and one 12X36). All orders will also receive an exclusive reprint of the Red Rocks poster with it's own edition to make up for a rushed printing gaffe (they came out horizontally compressed at 17X24. Reprint is 18X24. Sets will have both).
Sets will cost $1000 plus $57 shipping for domestic orders, $127 shipping for foreign orders excluding Australia, and $147 for Australian orders (I like 7's). I'll include an extra surprise in each pack and endeavor to make the foreign orders more special to make up for the shipping costs. All Australian orders get a small ink drawing of Linus as Danzig to make up for it (assuming they read Peanuts in Australia, otherwise I guess I could do Agro eating a frog).
Email me for availability.
"Waiting for a bus?"
Two recent interviews of note if you are as fond of me as I am of myself when the room's dark. One is conducted by Rainbolt and can be found on Nerdlocker. Thanks Rainbolt for editing out the bits where I bitch about the Hawley-Smoot tariff. The other is in the latest issue of "FLOOD", a free periodical published by the United Kingdom Poster Association. It's a snappy little paper printed by a gaggle of enterprising lads across the pond who distributed it at the most recent Austin Flatstock. Thanks to Crispin Parry and Luke Drozd for putting together such a smart looking and smart sounding interview centered around such a dumb subject. Find out more at the UKPA website. Buy some shit from one of them and maybe they'll include a free copy with your order for only an additional £7 plus handling.
"The dust blows forward and the dust blows back"
A fair while since I updated the site per usual. Here's a quick recap of what I've been up to lately:
BLUNDERBUSS: Since I didn't cock up the single cover too badly, Jack White hired me to complete the artwork for his first solo LP utilizing the beautiful photography of Jo McCaughey. Although compact discs are pretty much an already rotting corpse, I was especially happy with the Blunderbuss CD booklet which features a lot of design and photography that most folks won't wind up seeing.
SINGLES: After Love Interruption, I completed work on three more singles for Jack and oversaw tour versions thanks to the illustrative talents of Tomer Hanuka. Here's the covers which all link up to form a continuous image.
DOCUMENT COVERS: Those of you up to date on Third Man Records news should know that they re-released Document's catalog of classic blues recordings on vinyl. I was asked to design covers for the first three collections including Blind Willie McTell, The Mississippi Sheiks, and the masked marvel himself Charlie Patton. Each subsequent volume will have a unique cover that's similar to these initial ones so that each musician's collection will feel like a set.
AARHUS: I was approached to create artwork for a poster advertising the Aarhus Film Festival in Denmark (they handled the type in-house). In accordance to the theme "Big - Size Matters". I drew a giant turtle with a shit-ton of Aarhus festival logo shaped birdhouses on his back. Turning it in they asked if I could insert a darker element to it, so I added the snake eating one of the birds.
Later I was informed that they animated it and sent me the following YouTube video. I was delightfully surprised they took the animation as far as you see in the advert. If you want one of the prints, please email for price and availability as I have only a few since most were given to friends stricken with children.
ROD y GAB: I was hired to design a poster for Rodrigo y Gabriela's show at the Hollywood Bowl. I was nostalgically happy to design for the venue as the second theatrically used movie poster I ever bought was "Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl" in 8th grade (the first was "Strange Brew"). They wanted something heavy, I sent something that was appropriately deemed "too heavy" and I countered with some gharial headed birds which they liked. If you want one, please email for price and availability as I have only a handful.
AND SOME OTHER STUFF: I'll post about later as I doubt too many folks have read down this far.
