Just doing the best I can

Sooo much stuff going on... been workin hard.

A couple of weeks ago I screenprinted this poster for the CMJ college radio awards. 4 color silkscreen in a edition of 50. In return for my service I was given a CMJ badge which allowed me access into pretty much any show happening in New York City. It was kind of overwhelming, because I could only check out a handful of bands, and there were hundreds playing on a given night. I was also given vendor space at the CMJ headquarters. So the first thing anyone saw at CMJ was.... me haha.

After spending the day networking and spreading the good word, I headed over to webster hall to check out some music.

who are these guys? I have no clue.

Saw some hip hop chick named domique young unique (I think that was it), and then these guys ^ called Francis and the light. I wasn't really impressed and had a train to catch, so I blew that joint!

I said earlier that I've begun a love affair with gouache painting. Heres my first test, a study of "things that are badass," which is my theme for my advanced printmaking class.

The lovely dancers at Purchase asked me to make a poster for their musical, and of course I couldn't say no. 2 color screenprint in an edition of 35.
If you look at this with 3-D glasses on it, like, totally, pops out at you.

Rich Russo from 101.9 rxp, needed some posters made for one of his shows, and I was honored to make them for him. 3 color screenprint in an edition of 50. I think this is the coolest poster I've ever made.

What else have I been doing?
Playin my fair share of shows.
These were some pics my girl Kellyann Petry took from our show at the Purchase CO-OP last Saturday. We've got a show on Monday 11.15. with the Biters, and the Danvilles (two amazing bands) at Don Pedro's in Brooklyn.

If you can make it out to brooklyn its going to be a great time!

I took a walk in the woods the other day, and I had forgotten how nice it is to just wander, not go anywhere in particular and just stray.

Have a good weekend!
