In early 2015, i was contacted by Northern Nights' websites about taking a swing at the poster for their upcoming summer festival. They wanted something that promoted the location as a kind of headliner all its own.

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
