Been to busy doing work lately that i have not posted anything much on here. But I have a lot of stuff backed up so there will be lots of posts coming, and ill also be launching a tumblr soon to start floating some of my work more around the web.
Doing Album artwork is something i dont do quite so much of, but I do enjoy seeing projects come to life and take value to other people in the way that certain things have collectors value to me. I remember looking through every detail of album art by bands that i love and i still now collect various things which i will examine and study to take it all in. I found this rad pic of the Endless Roads Vinyl release that someone has collected. I dont even have one of these but im glad that people support the band. Hard working guys with very honest love for playing and touring.
http://unchainedmomentum.tumblr.com/ is where the pic came from, check it out he has quite a few collection of australian stuff, which is always awesome to see.
Speaking of Miles Away. I was asked to do a Mindnight Oil “Tribute Tee” for the guys on this latest tour. Heres what it came out like.
This is the original record for anyone not familiar. Australian Classic.
Anddd of course. The video. #struth #flatdinkumaussie
As some of you may know I have been out in Australia for a few weeks now, Im about to go hop on a plane back to Seattle at 9 in the morning tomorrow. I came out here to do a week of behind the scenes videos for Vans.com and all their other online avenues. It was a crazy week, loads of late nights editing then back out at sunrise to catch all that went on.
Here is the 5 videos tuesday through saturday, check em out.
As some of you may know, I was the original drummer in Melbourne band Her Nightmare, 5 years worth actually, which were some of the best times of my life touring, playing and having fun. They did their final tour a few years ago now, but are playing today, Boxing day, back home in Melbourne, well Seaford to be exact.
When i heard they were gonna do a reunion show i talked with them and did a shirt for them for the show. It actually ended up being printed as a singlet i think. If someone gets one send me a photo.
Also playing is Carpathian who i also did a shirt for, not sure if this will be available yet, but im pleased with how it came out too.
Im looking forward to seeing some pics and video from the Generation2010 show aka Skanfest.
A little Raiders knock off i did for Louie Knuxx to use on the upcoming Cool Sitch Europe tour with Deez Nuts and Amity Affliction.
Im very jealous of that tour, my good friend Hartley is also going along on the tour so im sure some amazing video and photos will come out of it with the combo of all the partying to be done and the skills of Joel Birch to collab with. Have fun dudes. Its gonna be cold as hell though.
Also just dropped over at Trust Comes Tough is the “Stay Gold” tee that i did for Webs. I enjoyed balancing all the text and type styles, drawing on all the hardcore catchphases my brain could muster. Im stoked with how it came out, i would love to see it as a poster screenprint or something one day.
On a quiet Californian suburban street, i had one of those amazing outer body experiences where you realize you don’t remember a time when you didn’t love Back To The Future. It was made in 85, i was born in 84. Much love for all these years of enjoyment.
Just spent 6 days in LA with my great mate James Hartley working on some projects, seeing old friends and some awesome sights. I also filmed a bunch of stuff with Hartley for a project i’ve been working on for a while, more to come on that later in the year. Thanks for an awesome time in Cali especially Hartley, Mj, Emille and Lobby, Kellen, Lennard, The Amurican Gladiators, Jim, Zac, Aaron and the Veggie Grill.
