VAST ACID WEST

Here are a few snapshots of a new work-in-process, VAST ACID WEST, a collaboration with Crane Giamo. A mixed-media suite of prints, Vast Acid West revisits some of the countercultural themes of the acid western film genre that came of age during the Vietnam War era.

ADAM TORRES

Yesterday I had the pleasure of printing up some posters with Adam Torres for his performance at the Cactus Cafe in Austin on February 25. It was typeset in Hobo and designed by Land.

A PEOPLE’S CURRICULUM FOR THE UNITED STATES

  A People’s Curriculum for the United States is a public poster project written, printed, and distributed by the people and for the people. A People’s Curriculum for the United States asks what America needs to (re)learn under the Trump Administration. What’s missing from the American Curriculum under this regime? Peace? Civil Rights? Close Listening? […]

DUMB POSTERS

Well, this might be the ‘dumbest’ thing I’ve ever dumb, er, done. As part of Cuneiform Press’ Music Series, we’ve been printing and designing concert posters. This one was for a punk house show.

PACKING PRINTED SHEETS

With printing complete, I began packing up Ted Greenwald’s Con Dot to ship to bookbinder-poet extraordinaire CJ Martin up in Colorado Springs from Austin, when I realized that I’ve always worked with local bookbinders. I was nervous that they would be damaged, or lost, and even considered driving them up there myself, but instead of […]
