magicalschoolgirl asked: Excuse me for asking such a silly question, but I saw the process shots you just posted; may I ask what the large decorator's paint brush is for? I can't figure it out myself. =)
its basically just a tiny broom. scratching up as much black ink as i do, the dried ink scrapings can get onto your hands and smudge across the board, or streak if you sweep your hand the wrong way. just better to keep things tidy. usually theres a smaller wet brush in use that i use for blacking out areas with ink, but obviously i dont keep that directly on the board.
nadiagohst asked: have you done many gallery shows with your art?
yup! i do a couple a year, including group shows. if you pop back a few pages on my tumblr youll see some installation photos of my last big solo show at Rotofugi Gallery in chicago. ill be at Cotton Candy Machine in brooklyn NY for a small solo show May 10th, and then in LA within the year for a very big to-do.
last summer i was heavily involved in a documentary about gigposters and the screenprinted art world, and i show up pretty regularly to talk about pretty pictures and depressing things and wear a silly hat. its a great look into the world and community of amazing artists and designers i exist within, see alot of awesome posters, and watch archers of loaf riff the shit out of the place. if youve got netflix, you can check it out here. its on instant watchy thingy. if youve got a local record store, the dvd copies came out on record store day. check it out.
almightydurv asked: How do you make your art? Specifically the night time illustrations, what programs do you use and what techniques do you employ?
ink on clayboard by hand usually, drawing in reverse because night time is more about light than shadow. that for like 100 hours. i eat alot of snacks. everything is scanned and then color separations are done digitally. then everything is screenprinted. check out the process posts ive made for Psycho and Game of Thrones.
