Last year we had the pleasure of helping our friends at Chipotle launch their first-annual Cultivate Festival. Bringing together food, farmers, chefs, artisans, thought leaders and musicians from around the globe, the festival was a resounding success. So, naturally we were thrilled when they asked us to come back this year. Our mission? To create a fresh and fitting sequel that continued the Cultivate brand we established in 2011.
What is Cultivate?
Here's the cover we recently completed for the upcoming Abandoned Pools record, Sublime Currency. The record itself is truly phenomenal and it was a great pleasure to work with such nice people. You HAVE to pick this record up on August 28th.
Scratch & dent. Overstock. Printing errors. Old posters. We got 'em and we need to get rid of 'em. For the remainder of the summer (or until we run out of stock) we'll be stuffing tubes full of posters and prints for a measly $10. Unfortunately we can't list which posters and prints we'll be including in the sale as we just have so many to choose from. Most have slight blemishes or some sort of minor printing error, while others have just been sitting on the shelves for awhile.
The risk? You may just hate every band listed on the posters your receive. The payoff? Your walls aren't that picky. Act now!
We're honored to have our work featured in The Grammy Museum's new installation "The History Of Heavy Metal", opening April 11th. The exhibit opening coincides with The Golden Gods and will feature numerous album covers from our early years within the heavy music genre. The show will be up for one year and definitely worth checking out.
So it's kind of a long story, but when my buddy Vijay, who owns and operates Artist Series Guitar, mentioned that his good friend, Ryan Hurst, would be doing a photo shoot for his custom Demon Hunter and Throwdown guitars, I had to make sure I was there. For years now, people have said I look like Opie, a character that Hurst plays in the always-enthralling Sons Of Anarchy TV show. All of us in Demon Hunter have become huge fans of the show over the years, so this was a really cool opportunity. Oh, and my wife made the dope leather vest Hurst is wearing in the shoot. Checking off that bucket list, one day at a time.
Is it summer yet? Not quite, but with last night's (bitchin') lineup announcement for the 2012 Sasquatch! Festival - we're getting close. The festival poster and identity remains at the top of the IC "Pet Project" heap each year, thanks to our client and friend, Adam Zacks. So if you see a haphazard vegetable oil-fueled modified recliner with scrapped airplane turbines and tree stumps for wheels carrying 'Squatch and his renegade gang of animal misfits - you're on the right road. See it bigger in our work section.
And check out the rad animation by the folks at Wintr.
We're honored to be featured in Design For Music by Hans Lijklema and published by The Pepin Press - showcasing a nice little smattering of various music projects throughout the years + a lengthy interview with both of us. Also includes an accompanying disc featuring 'Collapsing' by some band we are affiliated with. Big thanks to Hans for asking us to be part of this.
Well, we've been hard at work for over a year on this next project (and have many more months to go), but we are excited to preview the logo and name of our first interactive children's book The Uproar!, arriving on iPads everywhere via the Apple App store this fall. Lots of fun announcements coming in the first half of 2012, but for now - a quick synopsis:
"Journey into a world of sound and wonder in the interactive musical story The Uproar! Join a bizarre band of misfit monsters to explore a sprawling story from the mind of Invisible Creatureʼs Don Clark."
We are honored and proud to be working with our new favorite publisher + partner: Space Dog Books. Please do yourself a favor and download Space Dog's first chapter book Treasure Island, illustrated by the amazing Matthew Cruickshank.
It's going to be a fun year. Much more soon ...
