Dent May 7"

Long before working on Dent May's full length, I designed the sleeve art for Dent's 7" that was pressed in the UK by Make Mine.

A good friend of Make Mine, Stephen Bass, is a fine gentleman spreading musical jams across the globe. (he works at Moshi Moshi Records)

Stephen's buddy Manish Arora (Mr. Make Mine) he sent me over a bundle of vinyl from his rad label. That's wuts up!

Side note: Stephen has a long running project where artists create post card size interpretations of their favorite songs. He asked me to create some of my own which can all be viewed here. (For several months I thought that these collages were lost in the post forever, but they ended up at the record label's office...whew)

Parra Tinbot

I really want to snag this Parra iPod Tinbot. Parra's striking color palette and killer hand lettering really melt my heart.

Also note, Fecal Face has some GREAT pics from a Parra studio visit.

A look into my "Studio"

Currently I'm setup in the spare bedroom of our condo. In the nearing future I hope to score a sweet shared studio space, but this is my little nook until that works out!

Letterpress Drawer

My wife loves looking at Design*Sponge and she recently got inspired from the Greenwich Letterpress (you can see the rest of that post here):

She remembered that her parents have an old letterpress drawer (gothic cond.) and they gladly pulled it out of the attic for us.

Now we are on the hunt collecting type to display in our sweet drawer. So far we've looked at Uncommon Objects, Austin's Antique Mall, but have yet to search online. (maybe just google it or something, or ebay or even jerry's typorama)

We are going to re-arrange this wall of prints and make it the centerpiece. Any advice?

Jeremyville "Sessions"

On my last trip to the fantastic Domy Books I picked up a book i've been eyeing for a looong time and it's a very inspiring one called Jeremyville Sessions.

Jeremyville is an amazing world to view and this book really showcases his vast body of work.

It's jam packed with his amazing illustrations, designs, exhibitions and really highlights his collaborations (Geoff McFetridge, Miss Van, Devilrobots, Lego, Converse, & MTV).

If you purchase it online it comes with small signed original drawing!

It even includes a DVD, stickers, and a poster!
