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.
I'm in a huge group show at Mondo Gallery in Austin next month. Every piece is $200. The show opens Friday, March 18 at 7pm.
From the gallery:
We're excited to announce our second gallery show opening during SXSW 2016: “House Party.” The exhibition features more than 200 pieces of original artwork for $200 each. With contributions from over 100 artists, it’s the largest lineup for a Mondo Gallery exhibit to date and features tremendous talent.
The show will kick off with a reception open to the public, on Friday, March 18, 2016 from 7pm to 10pm and will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 12pm to until Saturday, April 2, 2016. Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX.
"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.

The exhibition will run until the 12th of December.

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!

In an age of digitally manipulated imagery and visual consumption via computer screens, it is all the more important to remember to get our hands dirty and take a look at actual objects in the three dimensional world.
Dirty Fingers focuses on a group of artists that are continuing to use various forms of printmaking as a viable contemporary medium. Silkscreening, etching, stenciling, and woodblock printing are some of the methods used in this large group exhibition featuring a wide range of imagery and content. The immediacy and accessibility of printmaking creates a medium that can be mass-produced in editions and sold affordably. The process of hand-printing also adds the distinction of the human hand at work, revealing its slight imperfections and labor to be quite refreshing to see. Join us for a showcase of our favorite printmakers from around the world.

In 2005, Minus the Bear asked me to create a tour poster for them. I enjoyed working with them, and apparently, the feeling was mutual because I've done several posters for them since. While discussing the poster for their tour this past fall, Erin, the drummer asked if I'd be interested in doing a video for their next single. My response was something to the effect of, "Duh. Of course!"
I bought a Risograph somewhat on a whim last year and then found myself too busy to use it. This year, I'm hoping to change that. First up is a small twelve page 2-color booklet called, In the Blink of an Eye. It's been a fun late-night diversion. They'll be available in the shop once they're finished. Stay tuned...
