Campus A Low Hum 2010

I got my first real freelance job right before Thanksgiving. I was asked to design a flyer for this music festival in New Zealand called Campus A Low Hum. You can read more about Campus/A Low Hum here.

Here are some posters other people designed for this years camp: http://www.gigposters.com/band/106555_Campus_A_Low_Hum.html

and here is a video of last years camp. Kinda wish I could go. Looks like fun.

Anyway, without further adieu, here is my poster. It's loosely based on some scenes from the video and the overall vibe I got from watching it. I was really honored and excited to do this poster because I feel like it's something I can really stand behind and support. Since I moved up in to the warehouse, we've all been working really hard to turn it in to something special, a positive place where people want to go. This dude is doing what we're trying to do and I really dig that. Anyway, I really like how it turned out, so hopefully they ask me to do more in the future...

Just finished a new flyer for our show on Friday. I like how it turned out, despite numerous setbacks. Firstly, two bands dropped, including my headliner, so I sort of feel silly putting them up around town. Also, I made a really really really stupid mistake. Always doublecheck your spelling, kids. This was my first time using a stabilo pencil to make my positives. I really like the texture it created. 4 color screenprint on 11ish x 17ish french paper.

Anyway, here is the correct version:

the original...

and the final, updated version...

Can you catch my stupid mistake?

The Armchairs

Just printed these posters for my friends in the Armchairs, regarding their show at Johnny Brenda's in a week. Three colors, edition of fifty(the stars are supposed to glow in the dark). The venue is supposed to flyer for the show, so I'm curious where the posters will end up. If you see any around, let me know!

Here's a sketch I was working on for an upcoming show at our house. The speech bubbles are going to contain the supporting acts, but that still needs to be finalized. Hopefully, soon, because I'm excited to start printing again. Or rather, printing my own things.

I scanned the whole page so everyone can see all my personal notations and suggestions and revisions. Kind of thought someone might find it interesting. I have bizarre work habits. I don't really document my process enough, so it will be neat to compare my final print with this original sketch.

Yesterday my friend Brad and I picked up some of the necessary pieces to start building our own exposure unit. Operation: Print Shop is under way. Tomorrow we're going back to Harleysville to pick up some power tools and get some delicious wings.

I drew this guy tonight. I think I want to start drawing more animals again. Reminds me of being seven...

These are from last May, but with the Phillies clinching their third consecutive NL East title, it seems like an appropriate time to post 'em.

I figured I'd update with something old and something new.

My roommate is publishing a book for one of his professors and he asked if I could do a cover for him. The book is titled "Life in a Horse Opera". This is from the beginning of the summer.

Sire is participating in the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours and I was asked if I could draw a quick comic for the occasion. Guests will come and get to screenprint their own poster, add their own dialogue and color it in. If you're free, come stop by on October 4th. Sire is located at the Cedar St studios at Cedar and Allegheny.

Nose Go Toy Release at Jinxed

Sorry for the lack of updates, internet, but we just got the web in our new place.

I was asked to do a custom version of Nose's vinyl toy for it's release show at the new Jinxed the other week. The show was awesome, as was the turnout. I wish I grabbed some pictures of the opening, but here are a few pictures of my version:

In other news, things at Sire Press have been going well. If you're looking to get dvds or cds pressed, check them out! Put in my name as the discount code to get a discount! I've also been helping my friend, Greg Pizzoli, with his screenprinting class at Uarts. It's been great so far. He recently curated a show at Space 1026 this past month that was incredible. Over 400 Seripop poster. It should still be up, so if you haven't... Check it out!!

Norwegian Arms - Louise

First off, cat pillows are now available.

Also, I cut a stencil for my friend Brendan of his cat, Louise, to use as an album cover for an ep he's releasing.
It looks like this:

You can follow Brendan's ramblings here and listen to Norwegian Arms here.

I'll be moving in to a huge warehouse in Fishtown with about eight of my friends in a few weeks. We're in the process of cleaning it up now and making it livable. It has a ton of potential and I'm really excited to watch it grow and really become something. First step after moving in, setting up a print shop and dark room. Neat. Mike will be building a small recording studio out of his room and we'll hopefully be able to start putting together some shows. Neat. Here are some "before" pictures:

Patterns and Pillows

I bought a yard of fabric off Spoonflower a few weeks ago and made these cat pillows out of it using the pattern I created (see below). Special thanks to my friend Georgia for teaching me how to sew and also letting me use the brown fabric for the backs(Good call). They're about ten inches by ten inches and will be available for sale on my etsy, as soon as the site is back up and running.

Stranded in Lebanon

For those of you unaware, I just recently spent ten days living in a Walmart parking lot in central PA, where I sold fireworks with two of my friends. Long story short, it was an extremely interesting experience and completely worthwhile. I definitely built a lot of character in the week and a half and came away with some good stories, among other things.

I bought one of those recycled paper brown sketchbooks that I've heard so much about. I really liked drawing in it. These are a few of the people I met while I was working for the man:

A couple days in, my bank canceled my debit card without warning me because someone lifted my numbers from the Walmart. Jose and I had to drive almost two hours the following day to get to my nearest bank, so I'd have more than two dollars for the rest of the "trip". We got lost a few times and stopped in on a townie bar to get directions. These people were super helpful. The tall guy had no lower jaw, but his moustache did a good job of obscuring it.

There are a lot of pregnant people in the suburbs.

These guys were great. They were having a party on Saturday night and invited us to come hang out. They also promised us "tons of pussy" and tried to sell us a variety of drugs, if we were interested.

This guy let us try these new poppers he bought in the Poconos. They were pretty awesome. I think he was trying to sell them to us, but we were too oblivious.

This woman sold fireworks before and assured us that we'd make a killing and gave us tips on how to rip off customers on the fourth(we didn't). She also set off some of the fireworks she bought in the parking lot after leaving. Yay!

Anyway, I'll be updating more frequently again, now that I'm back in civilization, so make sure to check back! Time to get back to addressing my promo mailers! Yay!
