Graphic Advocacy

Very honored to have John’s piece for the Hurricane Poster Project including in the traveling exhibit for Graphic Advocacy: International Posters For The Digital Age 2001-2012, curated by Elizabeth Resnick. The collection has already been shown in Boston, Mexico City, Seoul, New York City and others, with many more stops planned in 2014.

Paper and Ink Workshop (You NEED This!)

Showcasing the surge in small press printing around the world, with behind-the-scenes looks at the studios and workshops of some of the most exciting designers today, this collection informs and inspires at every turn. If you ever wondered how those incredible prints hanging on your wall were made, or thought about printing something yourself, this is a must have.

It’s Creepy!

It’s Creepy! An amazing collection of sea monsters and ghosts and aliens and vampires for the curious tween. Giving you the heebie jeebies and the occassional giggle it is a true page-turner and oh so fun.

Unsound

Legendary post-punk band Mission of Burma returned with and intense and incredible record. Using every trick in my box of, well, tricks, I created art and then destroyed it, photographed the remains, manipulated type ten different ways, and then drove a die cut right through the heart of everything so that you could see the searing fluorescent orange below.

The Shirt Off My Back

Quite literally the shirt off of my back. I always talk about making sure things work in black and white first before going bananas with color. Sometimes, I just stop there. Nice mix of painting, manipulated type, and pencil work in the illustration. If I do say so myself.

Orchestral Pop (Return)

The duo of Richard Davies and Eric Matthews return for their first album together in 18 years. A collection of incredible orchestral pop, the kinds of which no one can do quite like the two of them, required special packaging. Drawing from collected photos that they drew inspiration from, the die-cut cover makes clever use of the title in more ways than one.

ESG! ESG! Everybody Loves ESG!

For the self-titled LP from Bronx punk-funk legends ESG, I continued my loose typographic explorations and the fun patterns created by the sequence of the colors they were named after: Emerald, Sapphire and Gold.

The Days of Adderall

One of DC’s most exciting bands, as well as one of the finest labels, combined on this LP. Includes hand-screened sleeves and some fancy (if simple) info-graphic styled layout by me. Deleted Scenes’ “Young People’s Church of the Air” remains one of my favorite projects to have worked on.

Surfin’ Wolf

Tom Morgan is a songwriting legend, having led Smudge and co-writing many of The Lemonheads biggest hits. Amazingly, he had yet to make a solo record. When he told me the lead single was going to be titled “Taste For Blood” I couldn’t resist being playful with his mellow Aussie vibe and dark sense of humor. Vivid red vinyl closes the deal!
