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.

so sorry, my doves, for the long space in between now and my last post. i’m in the process of a.) knocking out a huge chunk of work that is all under a nice, tight deadline b.) in the process of a rebrand – which includes a website renovation. my poor website is so, so museum-like in its sparsity. wink. time to bring it into the new decade, y’all.
until i get all of my ducks in a row, enjoy a few new posters i polished off recently and a teaser for an iphone app i’m putting together with my friend burton (my first app design!):
I have been in the cave all day working on an invitation to a huge, highly anticipated annual summer party and I think I’m going to need a few hours of swim time tomorrow to bring me back to real life. A few weeks ago, Moonpie and I went to Emma Long Park in northwest Austin and it was a dream. I took a crappy photo with my phone but it disappeared into the nether regions of my memory card so here’s someone else’s photo for your viewing pleasure:
you totes need to go swim here. emma long park, austin, texas.
Anyway, here’s a preview of the invitation i’m working on, I’ll release the whole image after the party:
Speaking of invitations, I am totally available to put together an invitation|save the date card|thank you card for your next shindig. Below is an invitation I put together for the newly minted married couple Adrienne and Kenneth (of Black Bone Child). They are some of the sweetest people to grace the planet and I couldn’t be happier for them. Give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why, yes, I also design wedding invitations!

I recently had the pleasure of being introduced, through a mutual friend (thanks, Diamond!), to the luminous Georgia Bramhall who is in the process of opening her own hair salon here in town. The salon is called Honeycomb, so she wanted to stay within the bounds of the hexagonal shape while giving it some personality and femininity. We went with a mandala pattern for the design as she plans to incorporate Mediterranean and Middle Eastern elements to the interior design of the salon.
We collaborated and expanded on a few original ideas to come to this final version – I think it’s lovely! Be sure to check out her new place starting in about a month. Her website is on the way!
take a moment to get out of your chair and dance to this cover of iggy and the stooge’s ‘search and destroy’ by peaches. sometimes i’m not sure which version i like better.
here are some photos of myself and one of my best friends, brian hubbard, getting down on the dancefloor at barbarella here in austin.
me on the barbarella dance floor!
also! i got word today that my 5×7 painting that was a part of arthouse’s annual traveling fundraiser sold! it was a painted replica of this leatherbag poster i created last year. i’ll post photos once i get a chance!
well…not really, actually. like most days around my office, it’s a hurricane of projects, papers, stickie notes, 5 hour energy shots and itunes. unfortunately for me today, my cat steven had other plans with his attempts to thwart any work getting done. maybe i’ll head to mohawk for a cocktail reprieve right now during their beach party happy hour. are cats on leashes allowed into mohawk? their slogan is ‘all are welcome’.
gotta knock out as much work as i can this week as i’ll be heading to west texas on thursday for two important reasons: to assist my parents as they construct a massive ice sculpture for the us military in el paso (check out their work here) and to collect some photographs and artifacts to include in the promotional photo book i’m putting together for the upcoming film ‘transpecos’. so stay tuned for that!
in other news, for those of you on twitter, i’m a newbie – follow me and help show me the ropes @ChaseMaclaskey! Have a great weekend y’all!
