Drive-By Truckers Poster. 4-color screenprint, signed and numbered limited edition of 50.
This is one of the most ambitious posters I've ever worked on. While I have—at times—illustrated things here and there, I'm really not much of an illustrator. Still, I knew that for this Drive-By Truckers poster I wanted to do something completely different than my quieter 2008 piece for the band. I wanted to ditch the artsy stuff and the subtlety and just make a Balls Out Rock Poster. I wanted to do it in day-glo inks. I wanted it to scream under black light. And finally, I wanted it to be illustrated. I knew the image that I wanted in my head and I just started drawing it out in Illustrator. There were two major humps I had to get over for the poster to even exist: 1. I had to pull off the truck and then if that succeeded, I needed to figure out how I was going to draw a snake, scales and all. I was on a cross-country flight when I finally got the snake working and at that moment I was so happy. "I am going to land this thing", I thought to myself. And here it is. 4-color Day Glo screen print on heavy 18x24 paper. Try and find the semi-hidden homages to Convoy and Smokey and the Bandit.
• 18” x 24” Screenprint
• Printed on heavy French Construction Paper
• Each piece individually signed and numbered in a strictly limited edition

Ranking R.E.M. Album Covers I was inspired by a friend’s Facebook thread about underrated late-period R.E.M. albums to create a ranking of the band’s album covers. Aesthetically. A ranking covering all their studio recordings from 1982 to their breakup in 2011. The ranking doesn’t include compilations or live albums, although I am including Dead Letter Office because … Read More
Summer is (finally) here. Time for fewer clothes, more colorful drinks, and poolside jams. To that end here comes a brilliant new Magic Tape from DJ/producer The Magician. It’s an ace new slate of indie disco and house in a more chill mode and it is going to sound straight up perfect at the beach … Read More
In the summer of 2015, I received an email out of the blue from a production company in Ireland working on a 6-part TV series about “a creative bunch of teenagers who get together to start a band. The group embark on a journey out of their rural town and onto a national stage.” It … Read More
13, Broke, Curious, Bored The moment is indelibly burnt into my memory. Every Sunday morning, I’d pick through the day’s edition of the Omaha World Herald, digging through sooty inserts and box store circulars to more or less fixate on the comics, entertainment section, the ads. What I ultimately was after were the record store flyouts: rows … Read More
