Here’s some custom type I did for today’s date. Happy consecutive number day!
I am thrilled to be a part of the Artcrank poster show opening this Saturday in Seattle. 25 local artists will be showing bike inspired artwork for one night only. Each poster will be a bargain at $40 each. For my poster I drew tall bikes taking over the corner of S. Vale and Airport Way S. in Georgetown. It’s one of my favorite blocks in the city as it has everything I like: coffee, comics, records, good food and beverages. I’ve included a slideshow of all the Artcrank posters, take a peek and pick out your favorite.

Here’s the poster I designed for Marc Fendel’s new soul & gospel marching band called BAM! With a name like that I had to give it a vintage 60′s comic feel. Bad printing, large halftone dots, cowboys duking it out. You can catch BAM! at Honkfest in Georgetown on June 21st, and at the Fremont Solstice Parade on June 22nd.
Last weekend was the “Denny-Lincoln Classic” bike ride from Sadie’s school, Denny International Middle School, down to Lincoln Park in West Seattle. Sadie & I worked together on the event logo. Sadie drew the bike riding dolphin logo for the event, I helped with the type. Below is a short GoPro and iPhone edit I shot riding with the teachers, parents and kids. I hope this turns into a yearly school ride!
I have a new personal project I wanted to share titled “Creatures In The Street”. I’ve been taking photos of things that look like creatures around the city, then drawing my interpretation. The first couple drawings are up here so take a look! You can also start following the Creatures In The Street Facebook page to see all the latest drawings.
This year I decided to use a Spotify playlist to share my favorite songs of 2012. The only problem is Spotify doesn’t have all the songs I wanted to include. The Shad song was too good not to share, so count it as the hidden playlist track. Love the “Cannonball” sample!
I decided to draw up some custom type for today’s once-in-a-lifetime date, 12/12/12. Yeti’s approve sequential numbers.
My sketchbook is heading to Art House Co-op’s “A Landmark & A Mission” exhibitions in Pitsburgh PA 11/16, Ann Arbor MI 11/17, & Cleveland OH 11/18. Each show is an interactive art exhibition on wheels, featuring a rotating selection of work from The Sketchbook Project installed in a custom-crafted library trailer. For those that can’t make the shows you can flip through my “Capture The Flag” themed sketchbook here.
I was reading the stories of Amber Nolan’s jethiking adventure today. Her goal is to hitch rides on small planes and visit all 50 states. As of today she had visited 12 states. After reading that I started to count all the states I have visited in my life and realized I have hit 25 out of 50 so far. Not bad! You can pick your state’s using this handy website tool.
