On December 5th I’ll be part of the 33.3 show at gallery1988 (EAST). Over a 100 artist reinterpret and reimagine famous album covers. I did 5 color, hand pulled screen print inspired by the Deltron 3030 cover. It measure 12x12 and comes in an edition of 24. The show runs for about a month.

On December 12th I will once again be a part of gallery1988’s annual Crazy 4 Cult show. After two years on the east coast, the show is back in Los Angeles at g1988(West).

Philly Escapes The Robot Apocalypse

Got to work on a great project last week. I was asked by Sidewalk Atlas, a local band here in Philly, to design a new t-shirt for them. They asked me if I was interested in doing a fun, post-apocalyptic theme for the image. I said sure, twist my arm!

The design is three colors printed on a purple t-shirt. It may look like the robots are destroying the city for no reason but I prefer to think that they are looking for a lost kitten.

The band is taking orders for the shirt here. You can also check out their new album which is definitely worth a listen (and a purchase) here. For more info visit sidewalkatlas.com
