i did a poster for the mountain goats and erin mckeown and i realized i forgot to actually mention it on the thing where i am ostensibly supposed to be posting art
4 colors on white paper, edition of 63
thank you industry print shop in austin texas, who did a truly amazing job on this
thank you alyson west for organizing everything and tolerating all my amateur hour nonsense
thank you john darnielle for the impeccable art direction and for being just the coolest
thank you erin mckeown for also being the coolest and incredibly kind (note the free album download on her website—-IT IS SO GOOD)
and thank you trudy, whose last name i do not know, for doing the actual selling of the posters and for keeping me company before the show!
i have thought about screen printing posters for musicians every day for like 6 years now—-that the first one i did was for my favorite band, and furthermore came out looking pretty okay seems OMINOUS.
anyway since i can’t help but disclose process stuff, here are some links to some of the material/inspiration/reference used in making the poster:
Walton Ford - Der Panterausbruch
Pieter Bruegel the Elder - Hunters in the Snow
tMG - Deuteronomy 2:10
tMG - Sourdoire Valley Song
tMG - Ox Baker Triumphant
Erin McKeown - The Politician
Erin McKeown - Histories
The State of Idaho is planning to kill 4000 wild ravens.
Please sign this petition to voice your opposition to this proposal: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/114/241/939/state-of-idaho-to-kill-4000-ravens/
The reason for the culling is because the ravens eat grouse eggs, and the proposed means of culling them is to use poisoned eggs. Ravens are extremely intelligent birds, third in the world behind humans and dolphins. They’re very conscious, thinking creatures, not mindless animals, so in addition to being ecologically reckless it is utterly cruel. If you don’t want to sign this, please at least let it be known for others who would support the opposition.
I reset the stats on my shovel, its a new era of bird strikes.
