Walk the Moon Screenprinted Poster - $40
In spring 2015, I was emailed out of the blue by Walk The Moon’s art director. Some bands have art directors now. Crazy. I assume this is due to the shifting nature of music business revenue streams: merch and posters now make up a bit more of a band’s bread and butter than they once did. I was thrilled to be tapped to come up with a design for the band’s sold out shows in New York. All I had to do was avoid using a number of cliches the band had encountered over the years (no moons, etc).
With that I set about trying to encompass Walk the Moon’s feel. I felt it called for something retro without being obvious or pandering, something bright and colorful without being gaudy, and something that gave a sense of bounding motion. A dance poster without any dancing.
Conceptually this one is pretty clear: a jump man leaping from suspended galactic cliffs over a computerized plain of equalizer response. The band loved it and it remains one of my favorite pieces I’ve done. And that French bright yellow paper demands attention. Plus that sci-fi typeface (Alex Trochut's Neo Deco) is just unstoppable if you set it in the right treatment.

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
