Melting Simpsons for Admiral Browning and some limited merch

If this kid thinks it's rad then you know it is.

((((per the usual click on all these images to see the nitty gritty))))

So here's the deal: My buddies in Admiral Browning were going on a short summer tour and needed a poster to promote it. I had an idea for messing with the Simpsons characters so I offered them a poster for every stop on the tour. It ended up being one of my most popular projects yet so I made an art-zine based on the drawing side of it, am selling a few shirts of the art and have a few (maybe 3 each) of the posters left to sell at my Etsy shop.

Without more ado, here is some of it all:


Every poster is available at my shop for now over on Etsy:


I put up a few of the designs on Society6 but limited the color choices and products, not trying to go all out just wanna see how this stuff works. Check out whats available:


Over on my Etsy shop I sold a few of the zines.

 The zines have no band info and captions taken from (and out of) episodes of the Simpsons by each character. This was alot of fun to make and great to see people's reactions when looking at it.


From humble idea...

To labored drawing....

... and from initial Photoshop mockup to labored drawing scanned and cleaned up then colored in Photoshop!

....OH YEAH! I almost forgot! You can buy some of the drawings over on my Big Cartel site:

(yeah having 3 shops is confusing, BC might have to roll over to Etsy soon if I don't get more traffic over there)

Last but not least here's a clusterf*ck of animated process GIFs for the fun of it:

Dali's Llama 20th Anniversary poster, shirt, party & review!

Hey ya'll! Below and above is some of my finished art for Dali's Llama's 20th Anniversary show. The animated GIF was for the hell of it, the 1 color and full color posters were used in online and print promotion through the Coachella Valley.

Below is a picture composite I made to base the drawings off of along with a "genius" sketch I did beforehand.

Down here we have some of the sketching process  down through the final black and white art. Humble beginnings!

If you click on the below images to make them bigger you'll see some of the poster revisions. I stuck to my usual palette on this but still had fun with it.

The amps are hidden in the final product but looking good here!

They used the band image for the Coachella Valley Weekly cover story!

The band made pins and shirts from the art, how rad is that?

Misc pic of the drummers drawing. You can see the ink lines going over the blue line i printed out from the sketches.

I ended up going out to the show!
The Obelisk did a cool pre-show write up on it over here so I had to go....
The show was beyond great. The 3 hour drive blew on by, the beers were cheap, the people were friendly and the bands played under an old metal half pipe frame flipped upside down that is now used as a lighting rig. Oh yeah and the PA was LOUD and heavy as hell. Can't go wrong!

Here's a pic of the drive out there from LA and one of the sign at the place.

Ultra electric Mega Galactic!

Read a review of the rad gig over on this website ya'll...

Till next time!
