for Ben Affleck & Mondo
24x36” 5 color screenprint
I saw The Town at a midnight opening showing at the Boston Common theatre, surrounded by drunk locals and townies who would cheer in rows every time one of their friends appeared on screen as an extra (about every 5 minutes) or the camera passed by their apartment or favorite Dunkin Donuts (any establishing shot). I heard beer bottles rolling down the aisles, people shouting at the screen in the thickest of Boston accents. It was one of my favorite theatre-going experiences, partially because it was not dissimilar from the countless games ive attended at Fenway Park. fun and unruly. this movie and the town it pseudo-represents has an energy thats just hard to describe, but is really fun to be immersed in. The third act reveal of the final heist resulted in a full theatre ROAR. yeah, its a goofy movie, but whatever man. nobody ever stood up in a showing of Blade Runner and screamed “THATS MY BOY DONNY. FUCK YEAH DONNY.” and thats why im stoked to have made this poster.
archive sale sneek peak! details and updates on my facebook page and twitter.
so tomorrow (and perhaps the day after) my plan is to attempt an “archive sale” of sorts, in which i put up for sale a very small number of assorted sold out prints from the last ten years. their availability is limited to copies i may have set aside for shows, to replace damaged orders, and my own archive copies. that is to say, there is not many to go around. most prints will not be at their original price, but what i deem to be a fair going rate as a direct sale from the artist to you. i plan to start this around 2pm EST on monday, but i guarantee more information will follow. i am aware the server will probably be a disaster if i put everything up at once and nobody knows whats going on, so i will do my best to stagger releases properly and give a heads up on my Facebook page and on my Twitter account (ie sites that can handle constant refreshing) as to what is going up next, when, and its price. DO NOT use a “page-update auto notifier” on my store, we’ll very unsympathetically ban your IP. its very annoying.
hey all, i was the guest on the most recent episode of ADVENTURES IN DESIGN, a art & design (obviously) podcast rooted heavily in the poster world. if you want to hear me talk a bit about my work and life, my opinions on bill murrays face, and my weird high pitched chuckle for 2 hours, pour yourself a bowl of cereal, click here, and settle on in.
1. i get sodas from the car wash across the street, not a gas station. the soda machine works only about 50% of the time so i’ve full tilt kicked it at least 10 times.
2. Amazing Spiderman #97 relates to Harry Osborns drug problem, not Norman Osborn.
3. when i pronounce my own last name, i actually kind of pronounce it wrong. i guess i over-thought it.
also, because everyone and their mother is posting drawings of walter white today, and because sirmitchell told me to, heres a crappy 30 second doodle which is crappy because i dont really draw people.
"my name is walter hartwell white"
official print for AMC’s Breaking Bad
12x36” screenprint, edition of 300
i was asked by AMC & Gallery1988 to do this print last year as promotion for their 5th season, a job i had quite loudly accepted before they had even gotten past “brea…” in the pitch. a simple image, but that is my style.
…i’d like to point out that when my brother first told me about this show, about 3 aired episodes into its original run, he billed it as a comedy.
i think i owe you this. listening to me
sing about everyone i’ve come across and lost.
and you are the constant among all my nonsense
with my awful choice of words
i will drive you home. listening to you
drunk and cute, heart on your sleeve and it barely coming true.
and i am your constant among all your nonsense
with your awful choice in boys.
i speak in ninth grade form, cord under the door
powers out, we wait out the storm and i am floored
but you were such elegance, in your city of progress
but an awful absence.
this is a very crude brainstorm demo i recorded maybe two years ago in my bedroom; which is the origin of the title of my most recent print. it sounds like an unfinished song that was recorded in a bedroom. it also doesnt really have a chorus, because you know… punk.
