Move, move, move

Things are moving along at a high speed these days. I’m excited to have some new projects in the works and some on the horizon that will be very fun. There are many updates to be shared, but here’s a small, quick update. More to come once things settle down a little bit.

Astral Spirits LP

Very stoked to be working on the first LP release by Astral Spirits.

Sundowser

We’re getting very close to wrapping up the design of Bow Thayer’s upcoming release, Sundowser. Keep an eye for this rad album soon.

Prints for Sale

I’ve been working with my friends over at Bearded Lady and setting up an identity and web shop for their amazing screen prints. Please take a moment to check out the work by some great artists here on the site. I’ll have some prints for sale up there very soon.

Adios, Crummy House

Jess and I said goodbye to our affectionately named house in South Austin, where we started our first collaboration, Crummy House. While we won’t miss some parts of the place, we’ll certainly miss the good times we had there.

Holy Ketchup

Dude, it’s a busy time of year that is for sure.
Here’s an update on what’s been happening in the past month or so.

I worked with Converse at the Fader Fort.

It was good to work with some rad local artists this year and see some familiar faces from years past.

A custom pair of Converse for BJ.

I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging with Futura.

MORE STUFF:

The Koozie Show

I designed this poster. Come out to this show coming up and participate by making your own custom koozie and dropping it off by noon at the gallery. Will be a good old time you won’t want to miss.

Johnson’s Backyard Garden 5K

I teamed up with my buddy Ryan on this t-shirt design for Johnson’s Backyard Garden’s fun run out at the farm. Also another event you can participate in.

Brew and Brew

I’ve also been working on some t-shirt designs for The Brew and Brew, a coffee and beer joint here in town. This is just a sneak peek, I’ll show you more once we get some stuff printed up.

Astral Spirits

I’ve been helping Nate with some new Astral Spirits releases coming up this summer. Keep an eye peeled for some rad events in Austin and pick up a few tapes.

Forestbound Shirts

Check out the Forestbound collaboration that I worked on this past year. We came up with a few different graphics to be printed on some shirts.

You can now view and buy them online. They were printed by hand in their Boston based studio on super soft, pre-distressed t-shirts.

Forestbound uses exclusively found and salvaged textiles to create a line of durable, utilitarian tote bags. Alice Saunders, a Boston-based designer, puts great effort into hunting for well-worn historic fabrics and hardware throughout New England. Many hours are dedicated to working with these unique materials to ensure every Forestbound Original is one of a kind.

Take a look at the Forestbound website for more information and to view their rad custom made bags.

That time of year again

SXSW IS HERE

You know what I’m talking about. Your personal space is starting to shrink as people clog traffic and make your everyday Austin-shitty-traffic twice as bad. Hopefully, all goes smoothly this year and everyone has a good time.

Some stuff going on and happening out there.

End of an Ear artwork

Tim Kerr invited Jessica and I to put up some artwork at his annual show at End of an Ear. I’ve been lucky to get to know Tim this past year and I’m happy to have the experience of meeting such a rad dude. Go check out the show and buy some records.

This is Starting to Fade

Checked out Chris Bilheimer’s show up at Bearded Lady this past weekend. It was a pretty awesome turnout and the Polaroids were awesome. If you didn’t get a chance to check this one out, it will be hanging for the rest of March. There are a few of these digital photo reproductions up for grabs for free. Come snag one before they are all gone.

You’re Here

I helped out Attendance Records again this year with a little bit of artwork for their show this year. Go see some rad bands and support these guys. They are doing some rad things.

South By Spent Working

I’ve got quite a bit of work outside of SXSW going on right now, but I’ll be doing a cool project during the festival. I’ll tell ya about it once I get some photos and make it through.

Hardly Working

studio

This year is kicking off with some projects with Forestbound, Old Crow Custom Works, Bearded Lady, Converse and Bow Thayer. I just wrapped up a week of working with Kartwheel Co. where we demo’d and renovated a downtown music venue and bar. I was stoked to be a part of the project, even though it was a challenge physically at 78 hours in 6 days. Phew!

Glad to be back clicking this mouse around in my studio. More updates to come soon.

Down here in Texas, we’re not used to going weeks without seeing that big orb in the sky. We were glad to see it pop out from behind the grey clouds yesterday, so I thought I’d do a blog post to commemorate.

The year is in full swing and I’ve got a bunch of irons in the fire, but feel free to let me know how I can help you out this year on some art and design projects.

Happy New Year

masemangraphicsocrates

Welcome to 2015.

Last year was a roller coaster of the best highs and the lows of freelance design work. My work took me to San Francisco and New York in the same year, and I collaborated with the type of companies and projects I’ve wanted to since the beginning of my career. Along with a multitude of rad shows and gigs working with a wide variety of people, we made it another year.

Cheers to all who have pushed me along the way.

2015 is a mystery as to what projects will come along, but early this year, I will have a select group of products for sale at a pop-up shop in Los Angeles, curated by Busy-Being a shop here in Austin. This particular project has pushed me to create my own line of goods, mostly printed materials and patches sewn onto selected vintage clothes and hats.

Stay tuned for updates :)

Thanks and more thanks

Huge thanks to everyone who came out and celebrated with us at Bearded Lady for Public Private.

We had a great time and enjoyed seeing everyone of you. If you didn’t make it out, you can stop by the shop and see the work for the rest of the month of December.
