new band photos: leatherbag.

i hung out with the gentlemen of leatherbag just about a week before sxsw in an east austin studio where they were recording their upcoming album ‘yellow television’. we took some photos in the surrounding neighborhood, which never fails to provide an array of interesting backdrops! here are two of the photos from that session:

leatherbag had a great showcase during sxsw (which lead singer randy told me about, i didn’t actually have a wristband!) and has been featured in quite a few ‘bands to tune into’ lists. stay tuned for more photos from inside the studio along with the album artwork that i’m putting together. think: blue note. in the meantime, be sure to check out their awesome sound, described by some as ‘new sincerity’ right here! till next time, lovers.

leatherbag tote bags are almost here!

one of my favourite live performances this year, local band leatherbag is laying the groundwork for a new studio album. in the meantime, we just sent these new logo bags, based on artist ed ruscha’s ‘standard station’, to the press. better start lining up now to get yours, i’m going to be at the front of the line.

hey kids, been awhile since i’ve posted anything new – i’ve been in a whirlwind of work and it’s been crazy/awesome around here. here are three new album designs for some great artists. the piece above is for local ‘new sincerity’ band leatherbag. it’s actually a reissue of two previous albums they put out. highly recommend checking them out, y’all.

randy ‘leatherbag’ reynolds has impeccable taste when it comes to art and it was a real pleasure working together with him on this artwork, peeling away layers and arriving at this really powerful image. look for more exciting pieces and merch coming from this collaboration soon!

the piece below is for the digital release of mississippi-based, chicken ranch records band starlings, tn. psychedelic bluegrass? dark folk music? you be the judge.

lastly, album artwork for the illustrious local comedian/rapper/air sex competition host/social butterfly terp2it (chris trew). terp debuted his new album, half man half beard, at the fun fun fun festival about a week ago, culminating in his shaving half of his beard off. for those of you interested in jumping into the world of comedy and improv, sign up for lessons through chris and his partner tami at the new movement theater.

local musical phenom randy reynolds came to me recently to for some design work for his band leatherbag. he really impressed me with his visual interests which include ed ruscha, jasper johns and barney bubbles. i can’t tell you how refreshing it is to meet someone who really appreciates beautiful art and design. i was/am thrilled to be able to create some design work that really embodies the spirit of artists i’m obsessed with. i looked over a lot of josef albers, mark rothko, el lissitzky, bauhaus and mid century design to get inspired for this project.
