KINGS OF LEON POSTER - SAN FRANCISCO (2017). 12"X18″ SCREENPRINT ON HEAVY FRENCH CONSTRUCTION.
This is the second poster of three I've designed for Kings Of Leon's 2017 summer tour via Nakatomi Inc. (See more here.) It's a 12x18" three color screenprint designed to recall a mid-80s VHS cassette cover for a cheesy erotic thriller or new wave slasher flick. Something with Eric Roberts in the late 80s/early 90s golden age of Cinemax.
The idea was sparked by the band's suggestion that we incorporate cherries into our artwork. Apparently the cherry as visual motif goes way back with Kings of Leon and they wanted this series to represent that in some way. My challenge was to strive to find ever-more-clever ways to express that without just tacking some cherries onto the composition superficially. I wanted them where possible to drive (or at least copilot) the concept as well.
This was the first concept I had for what would start as 3 but end up being 5 designs total for KoL during their 2017 US tour. They really, really responded to where my head was at with these and seemed to like that I tend to like to design in a variety of styles.

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
