Just sent the final artwork for Austin band Burgess Meredith’s debut album over to the printer! Here’s a sneak peak at the cover. The album will be out in April, y’all!
SXSW 2012 was super rad. At one point, I managed to snag a photo with Bill Murray while drunk at 24 Diner with my friend Cassandra. He was with three of the squarest looking chicks in town and apparently on the rebound. Looking back, I wish we’d stolen him from them and turned the party ship around.

“The artist is by necessity a collector; he accumulates things with the same ardor and curiosity [with which] a boy stuffs his pockets. He borrows from the sea and from the scrap heap; he takes snapshots, makes mental notes, and records impressions on tablecloths and newspapers—why one particular thing and not another, he may not know at the time, but he is omnivorous. He has a taste for children’s wall scrawling as appreciative as that for prehistoric cave painting.”—Paul Rand, 1955, via Steven Heller
it’s gonna be a good year, kids!

Leatherbag’s ‘Yellow Television’
thanks so much for letting me be a part of your projects! ♥

my work playlist is pretty saturated with bon iver as it is, but the track ‘holocene’ off of his newest, self-titled album just destroys it for me. now that there’s a video out for the song, my desire to move to a small fishing village in some nordic country has become even more pressing.
feast your ears and eyes, babes:
