I just can't get over how awesome these Japanese Studio Ghibli Collection Blu-ray covers are. If they weren't so expensive, I'd own them all. Kudos to whoever designed these.... Click through the image above to see them in larger sizes on my Tumblr.
Here's a new poster I made for my dear friends Hotels & Highways and Mia Dyson who will be touring together once again this fall. This fearsome squad are always up to creative and promising things, and Mia Dyson fans will have something to look forward to very soon in the form of a great new record produced by Syd and Patrick Cupples from H&H. Always great to collaborate with my musical family. You can pick up a poster here or at one of their upcoming shows.
I almost forgot! Adrian Curry, my awesome art director on the ELENA poster, also happens to curate the great Movie Poster of the Week column at MUBI, and he recently shared some of my process sketches from ELENA and as a bonus asked me to select my ten favorite movie posters. A really fun list to put together. You can read it here.
Check out these beautiful psychedelic watercolors by Heather Woodall illustrating the Inuit legend of Ytek and the Arctic Orchid. The last landscape below in particular is a stunner. I've got a whole stack of books to share from my travels in the past year, as well as photos from Japan that I'm organizing for a post, so stay tuned!
Erik Lipinski is one of my favorite Polish poster artists. Born in 1908, Lipinski was the co-founder and editor of the Polish political magazine Spilki (Pins), whose excellent covers I've only seen in my Graphis annuals. Lipinski worked with the antinazi resistance in World War II and spent time imprisoned at Auschwitz. His wife, "Ha-Ga," was a prolific cartoonist featured in Spikli, and his son Tomek is a well-known Polish punk rocker. Here are a few of my favorite Lipinski designs.
New site, new work! Including two new prints for Spoke Art and the Castro Theatre, for Wes Anderson's THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS and THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU.
William commissioned me to make this poster for next weekend's Lambchop show at the VFW Hall in Nashville. It's an 18x24" signed & numbered print, edition of 50 on dark brown French paper. For sale at the show at a nice price, and here afterwards if there are some left.
My design was inspired by the song "Mr. Met" from Lambchop's new fine new record Mr. M. It's a huge honor to have been asked to do this poster for one of the greatest bands to come out of Nashville.
