Snoop Dogg at SXSW 2011 Gigposter

Kanye West at SXSW 2011 Gigposter

a dream came true this past sxsw when i was asked by local production company the electric company to design a poster for snoop dogg. and then there was the kanye west poster. swoon! if you are interested in obtaining one, send me an email, a short run of screenprints are in the works. wink.

the poster below is for a pink floyd tribute show at seaholm power plant here in austin, also put on by the electric company. you can get early bird tickets to the show here. just below that is a promo poster for local dj corsage and her radio program trust the wizard. be sure to check her out on tuesday nights at kpwr.

Which One

Trust the Wizard: DJ Corsage Promo Poster

a great band i took photos of recently, leatherbag, is putting together a show to benefit the recording studio who helped them put together their latest album. hot tracks recording studio is a one man operation run by Matt Smith in a small and awesome east side studio. Just recently, the landlord lost a battle between the city of Austin over the property and the whole section of artist studios, recording spaces and the like will be torn down to put up another :sigh: block of generic condos for some out of town schmucks looking to ‘get a taste of weird austin’. ironic isn’t it?

so come out to the show, if you’re able, and help support one of the many small operations that help keep the spirit of austin alive. all proceeds from the door will go to help hot tracks nail down a new location.

new band photos: leatherbag.

i hung out with the gentlemen of leatherbag just about a week before sxsw in an east austin studio where they were recording their upcoming album ‘yellow television’. we took some photos in the surrounding neighborhood, which never fails to provide an array of interesting backdrops! here are two of the photos from that session:

leatherbag had a great showcase during sxsw (which lead singer randy told me about, i didn’t actually have a wristband!) and has been featured in quite a few ‘bands to tune into’ lists. stay tuned for more photos from inside the studio along with the album artwork that i’m putting together. think: blue note. in the meantime, be sure to check out their awesome sound, described by some as ‘new sincerity’ right here! till next time, lovers.

New Merch for Mike and the Moonpies!

we just got the sample photos back for the newest addition to mike and the moonpies merch collection – a red and white trucker cap bearing a portrait of the band. we all agreed that we can’t wait til these hats resurface in thrift stores 20 years from now.

the hats will be here just in time for sxsw and their show opening for asleep at the wheel on march 18th. if you’re interested in purchasing a hat, send me an email! moonpie shirts with a new logo will be printed on monday!
