Ask + Thy Thrift Store Shall Provide

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Setting up for my show at Cannon Mine Coffee in Lafayette, CO, my art manager Sara Jane had the genius idea of making business card holders out of objects from the thrift store a few blocks away. Why put that shit on the counter when you could put it in a jar with a moose on it? That’s the question we all have to ask ourselves, at some point in our lives.

I have returned to visit my art at Cannon Mine and sip a nice bev several times since the beginning of March – I like this place. I’ve met a couple cool artists there (more info on that later) and I hope our paths cross again soon.

The open mikes there are boppin’. Check these pics of my art in action:

Album Art for Valeska Gavotte’s New Release

Monday, March 25th, 2013

I have recently had the great pleasure of working with esteemed musician Valeska Gavotte of Folkwit Records. Valeska is an incredible composer from the eastern seaboard of our great country and I was thrilled when he asked me to do the album art for his first EP, Botanica, back in 2012. He later used “Victory Day” for his second release, “The Sword and the Shield”, and now they are being re-released and pressed together as one CD across the pond by Folkwit Records of England. Be sure to check out his music, it’s fuginggg sweet. There’s nothing like it.
