Back in the shop

Working on a project very near to my heart over the past month or so with good friend Ryan Rhodes of LAND. Johnson's Backyard Garden is putting together a team to race in the Baja 500.

Ryan and I worked up some graphics and are currently putting together a website to help get sponsors. Stay tuned for more updates on the JBG BAJA Team. It's going to be a great adventure.

Very proud to announce an upcoming show with Alex Bond at Bearded Lady General in the month of October.
Sign up for their newsletter and look for show details in the coming month.

I'm glad to be back in the shop this month. I've got a few projects in the works, but I'm working on lining up some collaborations for the rest of the year and 2016.


Colorado Dreaming

What a long, strange trip it’s been.

I guess it wasn't really that strange.

A huge thanks to Jesse and Diana for hosting us at Serpent's Head in Colorado. It was a good long break from work and a complete reset from technology. I'm glad to be back, but it will take a while to get this rad trip off my brain. We had fun biking, building and beer drinking up in the mountains. We celebrated Andy's 40th birthday and ate great food.

Here are some photos I took - - - >

Patterns and textures

Things are moving along over here at the studio. I haven't had much time to update the blog these past few months since we've moved into our new place. We've been really enjoying the new spot and the new neighborhood. We feel super lucky to have found such a rad spot. More on that soon.

Here is some internet content for your hungry brains.

Custom Chucks

Here are another pair of custom shoes I made as a gift to a special Converse client.

These were a ton of fun to make, I ended up using acrylic paint to make a pattern across these fresh red Chucks..


Earlier this year, my younger sister Molly, who is an art teacher and rad artist, gave me a demo on using a sewing machine.

I have always loved making hand painted patches and I wanted to sew the edges to make them more presentable.

I liked using it so much, that I ended up practicing enough to make some crappy embroidered patches of my own. I'm not sure where this new venture will take me, but all I know is that I'm having a bunch of fun using the machine.

Sonic Transmissions

I worked with Ingebrigt to design and make some promotional material for his upcoming project, Sonic Transmissions, a three-night show featuring a diverse range of musicians. Make sure to check this one out.

Seafoam Records

My buddy Josh plays in Crooks needed a logo for his new record label coming up, so this is what we came up with. Crooks is playing a show in support of their new album this Saturday at Scoot Inn.

Other news

I've got a couple other big jobs going on at the moment, but I can't spill the beans on them quite yet. I hope to be able to show off some of this rad new work sometime soon. Until then, take care and see ya when I see ya.

Tag team back again

Very honored to have painted and designed this rad mural for Spredfast, a media company here in Austin. What we came up with is a mash of viral media and ideals of the company. It turned out to be a rad splash of color and images for their new offices. I was happy to have some help from local artists Alex Bond and Theresa Moher.
We cranked this mural out in three days. They were long and we got stuck in a Texas storm one day, but we made it through with smooth sailing. The outcome came pretty dang close to the Photoshop mockup, so for that we are thankful.
Here is a detail of a piece of the mural.
Theresa knocking out the details.
Here is Alex working on some detail work.

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.


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.



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


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


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.


Here is a sneak peek of some goods I’m working on with Forestbound, more on this soon.

You can now shop the Busy Being Texas Makers Market online. Click here to get some goods.
