new gigposters: kanye west, snoop dogg and more!

Kanye West at SXSW 2011 Gigposter

a dream came true this past sxsw when i was asked by local production company the electric company to design a poster for snoop dogg. and then there was the kanye west poster. swoon! if you are interested in obtaining one, send me an email, a short run of screenprints are in the works. wink.

the poster below is for a pink floyd tribute show at seaholm power plant here in austin, also put on by the electric company. you can get early bird tickets to the show here. just below that is a promo poster for local dj corsage and her radio program trust the wizard. be sure to check her out on tuesday nights at kpwr.

Trust the Wizard: DJ Corsage Promo Poster

a great band i took photos of recently, leatherbag, is putting together a show to benefit the recording studio who helped them put together their latest album. hot tracks recording studio is a one man operation run by Matt Smith in a small and awesome east side studio. Just recently, the landlord lost a battle between the city of Austin over the property and the whole section of artist studios, recording spaces and the like will be torn down to put up another :sigh: block of generic condos for some out of town schmucks looking to ‘get a taste of weird austin’. ironic isn’t it?

so come out to the show, if you’re able, and help support one of the many small operations that help keep the spirit of austin alive. all proceeds from the door will go to help hot tracks nail down a new location.

what a difference a year makes.

it’s new year’s eve which means it’s time for my annual photo montage. this time last year i was feeling out of sorts, apprehensive about what the next few months would hold and wistful for the road behind me.

i can happily say that i am on the opposite end of the spectrum 365 days later. this new year marks the cusp of my full fledged foray into freelance graphic design and so many words come to mind to describe my mental state: exhilarated, inspired, a little nervous and, i can’t stress this enough, absolutely drunk on happiness.

it goes without saying that i owe buckets of gratitude to everyone who supported my ‘obsession’ with kind words, recommendations, patience, opportunities and work. you really can’t know how thankful i really am. if you’re reading this, your interest is what motivates me. so, thanks.

it’s going to be tremendous year for all of us, as long as we stay strong and put one foot in front of the other.

and now a collection of photos that illustrate how i’m feeling on the last day of 2010.

happy new year everyone! clink.
