Poster designed for Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds performance at the Keswick Theatre. 3 color silkscreen on 100lb Black French Construction paper. Limited to a print of 50 and presented to the band as a gift from the promoter, AEG Live.

The illustration is an ominous drawing of an Australian magpie, a songbird native to the continent. They are extremely intelligent and often referred to as "the cunning prophet" in certain witch craft circles, and generally thought of to be a bad omen - an image I thought that fit well with the band's music. The tops of the clouds were shaped to mimic knuckles on a fist, to help tie in the title of the band's latest album, Push the Sky Away. And the ties on the barb wire represent the sign language symbol for "I Love You" (known less formally as the "heavy metal sign"), which represents the band's loyal following.

The illustration is of the arthur William Burroughs, from who's novel, Naked Lunch, the band took their name from.

Death Cab for Cutie poster (rejected) - Original idea for a poster for Death Cab for Cutie's show in Philadelphia. The image is a parody of ACDC’s infamous Highway to Hell album cover. In the end, AEG passed on the design, wanting to go with something much less cartoony – but I was happy enough with the general idea and execution that I figured it was worth sharing here. Consider it an unreleased B-side. Enjoy.

ABNRML 30th Print - I was recently commissioned to design a limited edition screen print celebrating ABNRML's 30th year in business. I decided to use images of a rabbit (the chinese zodiac animal for 2011) and rooster (for 1981) as a subtle way to illustrate the passing of time and included 30 stars along the edges, one for each year in business. The print measures 12.5" x 19", and is printed 3 color on a metallic gold patterned French paper.
