Panthers






I'm doing a poster/flyer for a band called panther attack, so I did a google image search on panthers. I was a little bothered by these images. I don't understand why this is such a popular image that it needed to be ripped off over and over. Is this seriously such a high selling poster that it needed to be bootlegged? Are thousands of people hunting the internet looking for paintings of carnivores to buy solely based on their level of "bad-ass"? What's going on?

The Prosthetics Shirt


They had a couple ideas. The other one was venus fly traps tearing people apart. I would have liked to draw them, but I couldn't make it work in my mind without looking like a gorey death metal album cover.

Ed Gein vinyl

I saw this on Ed Gein's myspace blog and I thought I'd share it.

"Judas Goats & Dieseleaters on VINYL!!!!

The vinyl for Judas Goats & Dieseleaters is FINALLY out!

After over a year of ridiculous artwork bullshit (the details of which I won't get into) we finally got someone awesome to do the artwork. That someone's name is Jeremy Forson. He did an amazing job with the artwork and layout for these puppies. They finally arrived yesterday and they look kick ass! We are totally stoked on them!

Head over to the Hex Records site at www.hanginghex.com to check them out and order one up!

Also go to www.jeremyforson.com and take a gander at his artwork because his shit rules!"

I love getting reactions like that from the bands I work for. It's good to know I hit the mark.

Born Anchors Tee




This band shares members with Heiress. They apparently like the work I did for them and wanted me to come up with a shirt. http://www.myspace.com/bornanchors. I think they're a really good band, and I had fun (trying) to do something more light hearted to suit their music. They sent me a preview of their idea for placement, and I think it looks really nice, I'm excited to see how the come out. I hadn't even thought of placing it there, but it looks like it was made for it. I'm happy that this was a successful endeavor after hearing that Tristan Tzara went with the original art, even though the label guy liked it.

Tristan Tzara 7"



This was for a DADA band from Germany that broke up a couple years ago. I was going for DADA assemblage meets hardcore. Successful? I suppose not. The band decided to use the art from the original release of the 7". So if you're in a band and need a 7" or CD cover fast, you can use this one I guess :(
