I was approached by pan y rosas discos to design the album cover for Rosalind Hall and Ada Rave’s new improvisational album, a trail, a texture. Pan y Rosas Discos (pyr), is a Chicago-based netlabel that focuses on experimentalal/noise/improvisational music and sound.
The cover is a composition of an ink drawing imposed on a monoprint, with addition of type.

Here is a quick stop-motion film I made screen printing the piece at Chicago Printmakers Collaborative for the Blue Moon Artist Series…
Trunk Show, 2010
10″ x 10″, screenprint, edition of 275
My piece for TEN x TEN, a new collaborative initiative developed by Spudnik Press and Homeroom Chicago
TEN x TEN develops the creative relationship between bands and printmakers beyond show posters. Visual artists invited a musician or band to join the project by recording an original song. Artists then created a 10 in x 10 in print inspired by the song they commissioned. The final collection features a suite of ten art prints and a ten song compilation of all new tracks.
For this project, I teamed up with the very talented Max Alexander (check out his site for more info and streaming). This image was inspired by a new track titled ‘Trunk Show’.
TEN x TEN visual artists:
Dee Clements, Kathleen Judge, Angee Lennard, Onsmith, Colin Palombi, Joey Potts, Grant Reynolds, Tom Smith, Sanya Glisic, Sonnenzimmer
Locks, The Late Model Races, Strictly Jug Nuts, Sky Event, Netherfriends, Nones, Christine Kick, Blasted Diplomats, Max Alexander, Jason Adasiewicz
All the prints and additional works by each artist are on display at LivingRoom Gallery (1530 West Superior Street, Chicago), through February 19th.
Working on the poster art and printing for the upcoming moe. New Year’s Eve performance. This also marks their 20th Anniversary show, at the House of Blues in Boston, MA.
Finished the first color for over 200 posters last night…
Ten Chicago printmakers chose their favorite Chicago musical artists and bands to each record an original song for a compilation. Each printmaker will create a 10″ x 10″, 3-color print inspired by the song they commissioned. The final package will feature a suite of ten fine art prints and a ten song compilation of exclusive tracks.
Organized by Spudnik Press and Homeroom Chicago
For this project, I teamed up with a very talented musician and artist in Chicago, Max Alexander. Here is a photo of *just* printed 300 completed two-color prints, drying:
