We were recently introduced to Jay Stolar through long-time mutual friend Charlene Kaye. The two have played a bunch of shows together this year, and Charlene recommended us to come up with ideas for Jay’s new tour merch. He was in a pinch to have the merch for his next string of shows that start in two weeks. Keith hustled, and came up with this hand-manipulated type-treatment of Jay’s name that’s going to be printed on t-shirts and stickers.
This is our cover for the new EP Grow my Roots by Come Wind. The EP releases tomorrow, and you can get an exclusive early stream over at Alternative Press! Visit their online store to order the CD.
We’re extremely proud to announce that we’ll be amongst the ranks of several other great artists as one of the featured designers at this years Weapons of Mass Creation Fest. The event is curated by Go Media, and will take place in Cleveland in June. Cheryl and I will be representing our team. Come say hi to us, and grab a bite at Happy Dog (yumm!)
I’m very excited to reveal that I’ve been working on a bunch of new projects for mewithoutYou. Last week, they announced their new album Ten Stories. I’ve been handling all of the design aspects of this record. As with their previous records, the artwork is based around a series of paintings by Vasily Kafanov, and I’ve been working on all other visual elements, including intricate typography, illustration and general layout. For now, the band is revealing a small puzzle piece of the cover, every week-day on their facebook, until the full cover is finally displayed. More to be announced soon.
The band is currently on a short spring break tour, and are selling a shirt I designed based on the new song February, 1878. They also asked me to silkscreen some posters for the tour, so I roped in honorary bear Allie Smith to help illustrate the rabbit from that same song. Go grab some of this new merch at one of their upcoming shows!
