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.

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 email@example.com.
Why, yes, I also design wedding invitations!

hello sweet darlings, it has been a while – my apologies! i have just relocated my daily creative routine to a new studio space which, after a little funky decoration, has proven to be a total ‘inspiration den’! here’s a photo of me on the floor of the studio just before laying out the my big new black shag rug.
may rolls on with lots of projects in the cannon: keep your eyes out for a new logo design for fabulous local downtown salon and spa joie de vie, album artwork for several amazing austin bands, beer labels for a darling new texas microbrewery and more! in the meantime, here are some new goodies to check out:
you must check out los angeles-based ‘glam-country noir’ band blue blood. blue blood performs the kind of ominous americana that leads you down an an old dirt road with it’s seductively lethal lyrics then abandons you in the middle of the night, leaving you wanting more. stay tuned for a new logo/tshirt design from them. in the meantime, here’s a video for the band:
for those of you who love bass in your face, you’ll be happy to hear about the newest nightclub to hit the streets of austin, Kingdom. it’s an intimate club housed within an old studebaker showroom – completely renovated with a rippled ceiling and minimalist architectural touches. every element within the space was carefully planned to enhance your experience: state of the art lighting systems, recycled and environmentally friendly structures that help to shape the sound, and the best damn sound system you’ll ever hear. kingdom’s soft opening is this wednesday, may 18. you can find it on 5th street between congress and brazos in the alley of the frost bank building. kingdom looks forward to bringing the hottest dj talent from all of the world to you.
up next is a poster for the lovely and talented theGlitoris who was featured in the may monthly installment of cousin claudia at elysium. if you didn’t make it to the party, you can catch theGlitoris every tuesday at tuezgayz dance party at barbarella. trust me, it’s so much fun!

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.
