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.
