Back by popular demand, I've produced a small second edition of my "The Greatest Gift"/ A Christmas Story screen print. It's 18x24", 3 colors, an edition of 100, and once again printed by the amazing VG Kids. It, and a few remaining foils, are all available here.
In the articulate words of Randy..."whipppeeee!!"

I designed the prints for The Avett Brothers Legendary Giveback benefit show that took place on Saturday. There's a regular edition that glows in the dark as well as a lava and sparkle foil. They're 24x18" screen prints that were masterfully printed by VG Kids. All are very limited in edition and all are now available here.

I have to admit that the death of Jose Fernandez has hit me harder than any other celebrity passing. As a huge Marlins fan I've dedicated a lot of my life to following this club. I know it sounds silly but when you dedicate that much, the players (although complete strangers) almost feel like family. We go through many ups and downs and it seems like we experience that together. Jose was a unique personality that always exhibited enthusiasm for the game and life...on days he pitched and days he didn't. It really was, as manager Don Mattingly said, like watching a kid playing in Little League. It was refreshing and an absolute treat. He was one of the best pitchers in baseball at the age of 24 and no doubt would have become better. This kid simply had the world in the palm of his hands.
The fact that he has his first child on the way and broke that news 6 days before his death makes it even harder to swallow. The fact that he was originally slated to start yesterday's game and likely wouldn't have been out that late if they hadn't moved his start to tonight makes it even harder to swallow. The fact that he meant so much to the entire community of Cuban Americans makes it even harder to swallow. I can't imagine how emotional tonight's game will be but I have to go through it as a sort of celebration. I also had to create this drawing as a sort of celebration.
Jose Fernandez was a bright shining light and I'm glad I got to enjoy some of it from a distance. Rest in peace, young man.

The next release in my AfFOILdables poster series (which focuses on modestly priced screen prints on foil paper) is The Big Lebowski inspired print entitled "The Dude of the Year". I've always loved that brief moment when the Dude sees himself in the Time Magazine mirror just before meeting Jeffrey Lebowski. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to once again design something that specifically considers the holographic properties of foil paper. This print is an 11x14", 5 color, limited edition screen print on rainbow foil paper...available for only $30! There's also a very small number of lava foil variants. Both available here.

I've just released my prints from The Avett Brothers' three night run at Red Rocks, which took place this past weekend. They're limited edition 5 color screen prints that are available as both a 3 piece 12x24" set and as 1 uncut 24x36" print. There are regular editions, foils and wood veneers...all available here.
And here's a little about the design...
I was very interested in exploring the fascinating and very different songs and sounds of their new album True Sadness. I found it to be a remarkable collection that in many ways is more complex and experimental than previous albums, yet is still grounded by the very core organic sound that is pure Avett. I wanted to simplistically depict the three original members representing that core organic sound. I chose to portray them in a stretched out distorted manner that suggests just how different this album is. Basically it's the intended juxtaposition of simplistic and unique, combined with the beauty of the live experience as well as this distinguished venue.

I had the distinct honor of designing the official Flight of the Conchords gig poster for their show last night in New York City. Twas a real treat religiously watching both seasons and listening to the albums while working on it. These guys are geniuses. My edition of prints will be on sale this Friday at 2pm EDT here.
