With the passing of the iconic Ultimate Warrior, I thought I'd share this sculpture that I never found the time to finish. At some point today I'm definitely putting in Wrestlemania VI as I'm not sure there was ever a more exciting wrestling moment for me than when he took the belt from Hogan. Sorry ladies...I'm taken!
Anyway RIP Warrior...I'm sure you're at the pearly gates of Parts Unknown!

Now that I'm home and have had a chance to recover (somewhat) I'd like to officially state that Flatstock 43 at SXSW was a tremendous success! It's always great to meet new friends as well as hang out with old ones. And the art...man is it great to be amongst so many talented artists! It's both overwhelming and inspiring. Now I'm gonna continue to allow my body to recover from all of the booze and tacos...hopefully we'll see you next year Austin!!

Now that the tour has officially ended I've released my artist proof edition of the What the Funk tour poster. When I was originally given this assignment my brain went to one place. When I think of "funk" the first thing that comes to mind is the "bowchickabowow" of classic blaxploitation film soundtracks. I have an obsession with several of these soundtracks such as Gene Page's Blacula, Willie Hutch's Foxy Brown & Rudy Ray Moore's Dolemite just to name a few. It's one of the first things I search for when I find a record shop. There's just something positively timeless about the funk and soul of these soundtracks on vinyl! Sooo, since this is what I think of when I think of "funk" I decided to present this tour poster as a vintage blaxploitation film poster. Keller loved the idea and even sent over a few requested selfies posing as a badass...now that's a dedicated artist! Anyway, this poster is an 18x24", 7 color screen print with a limited edition of 30 artist proofs. It's available for $30 here.

With Flatstock at SXSW just around the corner I decided I needed some new stickers for the booth. Therefore I present to ye...Clown Poop! It's a 4.25x4.5" die cut vinyl sticker produced by the mighty fine folks at Standout Stickers. You don't have to go all the way to Austin for one either...that would be dumb. They're available here as well.

Well shit...there goes another genius. Harold Ramis will forever be remembered for his role as Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters and rightfully so. However I especially owe this man a ton of gratitude as he directed two of my all time favorite films in Caddyshack and National Lampoon's Vacation. As a big, big fan of comedy and a child of the 80's this man is simply an icon. So thank you for your many contributions and rest in peace sir!

I just conducted a random drawing (with all the names of those that purchased an Umphrey's McGee poster this week) to give away the original concept sketch for the design....and the winner is...Jeremy Smith!!! Congrats to Jeremy. Your poster should arrive very soon and you'll find this 5x7" drawing included with your order. Thank you to everyone that purchased a poster...they're on the way!
I still have some left, including the metallic blue variant, here.
