This is my submission for the Creative Type show this month. It’s probably the longest I’ve spent on a painting and it was pretty fun and draining! Don’t usually work this large and I have to say it’s really satisfying. Looking forward to expanding the scale of my stuff in the future! The words come from a sample used in The Books song, “Be Good To Them Always”. A wonderfully bizarre tune that has Nick Zammuto singing along with samples of various people constructing quasi apocalyptic lyrics. Probably one of the most creative bands working today!

This is a shirt design I did for the band Phosphorescent! Great band that I’m psyched to have gotten to work with. They've got quite a few records out but I was particularly floored by their most recent album Here's To Taking it Easy. It's a dusty country rock record which is pretty different than Matthew Houck's previous output of quiet introspective folk. Really impressive how well realized the sound is now that he's decided to let loose a little. AND THAT PEDAL STEEL! Saw them live a bit ago and if you ever have the chance take it, they were fantastic and a lotta fun!!
