After the success of 2015 Poster, I was fortunate to be asked back by the Northern Nights people to have a go at 2016's. Rather than do a repeating look ala Coachella's iconic poster we decided to instead make each year a distinct illustration in the same style, from different vantage points. Once again, we made the festival's gorgeous Humboldt County setting the real star of the show. This was an enormously challenging project as I was looking at a blurry Google earth image and a couple very low-res onsite photos and extrapolating what it would all come together as on the night. The mountains, the trees, the fog, the canopy of night sky, the lights playing against the smoke and fog. Its all there. A huge undertaking, but with terrific results.

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
