Think I’m going swimming tomorrow…

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:

Project Preview: Invitation

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 chase.maclaskey@gmail.com.

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.
