So thanks to Seattle's inability to handle snow without freaking out my new band's (Shining Ones) first show was cancelled. Which is not the greatest start for a project. So our would be second show (which will now be our first show) should hopefully occur Saturday January 10th @ the Rendezvous, pending no natural disaster's or extreme weather decide to take over Seattle that day too. This will be a one off show for Salt Lake City's mighty Eagle Twin. We also got asked to play an awesome show at the end of January that we're pretty excited about...

I've been working at a new musical endeavor with Dan from Lesbian. We're going to be playing our first show this Thursday at the Rendezvous in Seattle along with Hemingway, This Blinding Light(feat. mem. of Hypatia Lake) and Sparkle Girl. It should be an awesome show.

The guys in Akimbo were kind enough to ask me to design a poster for their upcoming 10 year anniversary & Jersey Shores record release show this coming Saturday. Harvestman (Steve Von Till of Neurosis) and Helms Alee will also be playing. It should be a great show.

So much stuff going on around here lately. Below are just a few of some recent projects I've just finished. The Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter poster is for two shows this coming weekend in Seattle. Limited to 130 copies, these will be available at the shows and online afterwards.
Also below are some limited edition (120 copies + overrun) live Asva cd's that I've designed and printed that will be available on their upcoming European tour . This is a live set from London in 2005 which was recorded and later mastered by recording engineer extraordinaire Randall Dunn. These will probably go fast. This is the first in an ongoing series of live cd's being put together by Randall and myself.
Currently finishing up posters for Boris/Torche, Harvey Milk and a Master Musicians of Bukkake tour poster along with a never ending list of other projects.

Part of the art for an upcoming project for Hrak Ryam Hral (the new band from Nick Phit of Graves at Sea). I'm really excited to be working on this. Look for a U.S. from them in the fall. I'll post more from this project as it comes together.

One of the designs I recently made for Important Records is now available!
The Thrones posters have been printed and are currently in transit to Seldon to sign/number. They will be for sale at the show and through Seldon and myself. I'm very pleased with how they turned out.
The KTL U.S. and Canada tour started 2 days ago anyone that lives in Chicago, Philadephia and New York should check out the last few shows. The band will have copies of both the tour poster and t-shirt design by myself and Demian Johnston. I will be printing a small second edition of the poster which will only be available through here.

Some more shirts I finished in the last week or so. The Russian Circles shirt will be a v-neck. I'm also currently working on screening a Thrones poster for Seldon Hunt. These will be done sometime this week and available at the show.

I've also just finished printing the Battles posters. Those will be available through me as of the day after the show. tons more stuff soon...

Two new shirt designs for what is probably one of the only record labels(and one of my favorites) from my hometown. I'm not sure if these are going to be the final print colors.
