I teamed up with VYNL Fights (the charitable extension of VYNL Bikes) to create this polka-dot mountain pin, KING OF THE MOUNTAIN, just in time for the Tour de France.
ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of proceeds go toward your choice of five environmental charities, helping to ensure the mountains, forests and all the animals that inhabit them are around for future generations to climb.
The hard enamel pins are made in the USA. Proceeds from each pin purchased go toward one of five planet-loving charities of your choice:
* The Sierra Club
* 1% For the Planet
* The Carbon Fund
* The National Forest Foundation
* The Environmental Defense Fund
Get yours from VYNL here.
I don't get to collaborate as much as I'd like. I'm either alone in my bubble creating personal work, directing a team to execute my vision, or being directed to bring someone else's vision to life. So when I was in Chicago last month with a few hours to kill before my flight home, my dear friend Jay Ryan asked me if I wanted to head over to his studio and work on a drawing together. Of course I said YES. In between bites of hot dogs and slurps of chocolate cake shakes, we created the line drawing for this print. Jay scanned it while I sat in an airplane hurdling West and over the subsequent month, we bounced a Photoshop file back and forth adding layers of color and detail to the image, adding bits to the image and seeing if the other person would notice (nice work on the tiny little flies Jay!). Not only is it fun to work on something with a friend, it was an opportunity to glimpse into Jay's thought and working processes.
The result is this 16"x20" print, consisting of 8-screens, masterfully printed by Jay and his team at The Bird Machine. Edition size 120. Get one here until they're gone.

I'm about 3 months late in posting this (Gimme a break! I've been busy!). However, I thought you might be interested in hearing the interview I did with the Missing Artwork podcast about the cover art for David Bazan's Dark Sacred Night album.

"We really wanted to do something huge for our fans this time around, so we asked over 100 artists to contribute original art for $200. We've been blown away by the quality of what has come in. This one might be pretty big,” said Mondo Co-Founder/Creative Director Mitch Putnam.

Apparently Skillshare felt that my poster design class was such a success that they've asked me to teach another class for them--this time on Character Design. But instead of just one class, I'm doing a 3-part series. The first class in the series focuses on the basics of character design and sketching out your character. Enroll today!
I'm in a group show opening April 2 at Flatcolor Gallery, here in Seattle, WA.
It's got a great lineup, including: Michael C. Hsiung, Nick Zaremba, Joseph McSween, Kinoko, Evah Fan, Kyler Martz, Bad Dad, Matthew Zaremba, Phil Guy, John Malta, Devin Amato, Mike Turzanski, Joshua Longo, Bely, Kyle Pellet, Solace, Jeans, Luke Ramsey, Molly Mendoza.
Please come to the opening and say hello!
Skillshare recently asked me if I'd be interested in teaching a class on poster design. Because Skillshare is awesome, and posters are fun, I eagerly accepted. And then I realized I'd have to talk. In front of a camera. But by then, it was too late to turn back. Fortunately, it ended up being a lot of fun. It provides a good peek into my process, as well as my motivations and thoughts behind why I do what I do. There are worse ways to spend an hour. Enroll today!
