Widespread Panic Cincinnati Poster

6 color screen print
edition of 220
I was once again asked to contribute a poster for a Widespread Panic show. Oddly enough, despite designing posters for about 5 years, this was my first one for a local show. It depicts a carny putting out the "badass" vibe while sipping on a tall boy. There's a few easter eggs in there such as the flying pigs (a Cincy icon), a dude sporting a Reds shirt, and a few Panic song references in the carny's tats. The overall design loosely references "Sharon,", a song Panic covers that mentions a carnival worker attracting people to a seductive performance inside a tent.

This poster is a limited edition of 220, though I have a small number of Artist Proofs available here.
There's also a VERY limited number of green variants available here. And I also have the original 24x18" ink drawing available for $250 here.  All posters have sold out.

And some detail pics...

Dexter Statue Available!

I wanted to try something new and produce (sort of) my own line of toys/statues. I have several characters in mind and a few already in production. The first one I've had time to finish is Dexter. It's a one of a kind, hand crafted, 16" tall and 5" wide mixed media statue. 

Dexter seemed like an appropriate first release considering we're down to the final week of his existence. I fell in love with this show the moment I discovered it. It was after season 4 aired so (thanks to Netflix) I had the chance to rock the first 4 seasons in immediate fashion. I've had Showtime ever since. Ive said it before but I LOVE when a show, book or film makes you root for a heavily flawed character! There's something positively novel about that. Tony Soprano, Hannibal Lecter, & Tony Montana are a few other examples that immediately come to mind. Regardless, the show is brilliant, the writing is brilliant, and I'm sad to see Dexter go. Hopefully they'll wrap it up in a deserving anti-Soprano fashion. Man, that ending scarred me!

So in the spirit of the series finale I present to you...Dexter...available here.

Wedding Invitation

I was recently given the task of designing the wedding invitations for my good friends Kaycee and Zach. They requested the American Gothic reference and this is what I came up with.
