My Alma Mater SHSU recently interviewed me for an article, below is the link to it, if anyones interested.
Everyone is getting married, everyone… Well, at least that’s what it feels like lately.
Normally this would be a nightmare for a singleton, or really anyone,
having to go to more than three weddings in one season,
its definitely a lot.
But luckily for me, everyone I know is incredibly talented and has amazing taste.
So it makes the weddings more of an event
Thats the case for this one, fo sho. Russ Willis and Andie Schlather are gettin hitched on the eight of december this year. They asked me to create a poster for the wedding, I was honored and surprised, but it has definitely been a challenge.
This girl Andie has some serious style and incredible taste, so naturally I got serious “artist block”. The pressure has been on.
But I have a feeling, that I have nailed it on the eleventh hour (so typical for me)
I’m printing today, and will deliver the final print to Andie later this afternoon, hopefully she will love it, hopefully I will.
Above is an image of the sketch, so the poster will somewhat look like that, somewhat. I’ll post the final image after the wedding.
Oh, did I mention the reception is at the MFAH. Yeah.
The man behind www.all-americana.com Mr. Nathan Nix is self publishing a novel in the very near future. He honored me immensely by asking me to read a draft and design a cover. This will be my first book cover, and I have to say, I’m completely thrilled. I have always been obsessed with book design, and hope that I am up to the task. We shall see…
If you haven’t checked out the All-Americana website, You SHOULD! Trust me. Nix has an amazing brain in that hansom head of his, and he uses it for good. !
Here’s a little blurb in Nix’s own words to describe his site. Seriously check it out and spend a couple hours exploring.
‘All Americana is not a site about Americana music. Not exclusively, at least. It is more encompassing than that. It explores how we tell the American tale, whether through words, photos, music, dance, acting, or on a physical canvas’
I recently made a series of images for the Houston Based band The 71′s, which they used as the album art work for their most recent record We Are the Seventy Ones.
I struggled a lot with the images for this project, but ultimately stumbled upon something that, I think, looks pretty cool. I made these images by creating a ton of rorschachs with Speedball ink and vellum, folded, pressed and printed in 110lbs cardstock. I then cut them all out with and x-acto and assembled them into 6 different collages. (one of which was destroyed at the print shop while being scanned in the large format scanner)

I was asked this week by one of my favorite human beings Darren Lee front man of Blackie Dammit to supply some work for their debut album. Naturally I instantly said yes, well kinda screamed it as we were in a loud Houston bar, but I digress. I haven’t heard any music from this new band yet, but my first instinct was to do something uber sexual, dirty, gritty, rock and rollie. When I sat down to sketch though, something else entirely happened. It’s probably gonna be a while till I nail down what is in my head, but here are the first proper layouts, not even really inked yet. Been swamped with the sessions -pun intended!
