Here's the sleeve art for the upcoming LP/CD release by Spanish garageniks Invasores de Marte. This one is a tribute to the EC line of weird science fiction comics that messed up my impressionable teenage brain many years ago, and especially the work of the great Wally Wood and Al Feldstein. More weird junk comin' soon so... Stay tuned for MORE SQUA TRONT ACTION!
Just finished this poster design for the farewell show by veteran Winnipeg rockers Subcity. This one was inked entirely with pen and ink instead of my usual brush-heavy style. Lots more weird junk coming real soon. Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!
I finally got my hands on a copy of Flying Saucers Rock'n'Roll, the amazing compilation of wild interviews from the pages of Roctober magazine so to celebrate here's a previously unseen (on this blog anyway) illustration from the book. I have to admit that I didn't know much about actor/musician/activist Oscar Brown Jr's career but based on the interview I thought a bit of R. Crumb stylistic homage might fit well with his '60s and '70s inner city revolutionary political activism. I am super stoked with how well the book came out. It's a really wonderful compendium of info on some amazing and unfairly neglected artists. Check it out if you get a chance and as always... Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!
Here's the front and back art for the soon-to-be-released Bloodshot Bill 7" on good old Transistor 66 Records. Bloodshot is one of the wildest rockers goin' today and a real nice fella to boot so it was a kick to get to work on this sleeve design for him. I first saw him play in a little club here in Winnipeg 6 or 7 years back and that was when I envisioned the drunken skeleton w/pompadour image which adorns the back of this sleeve. Gonna be drawing BB again soon as he is headlining this year's Transistor 66 10th anniversary weekender in April and I am designing the poster for that. Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!
This was my contribution to the extremely cool, limited edition 2011 publication The Winnipeg Book Of The Undead which compiled zombie art by a wide variety of local cartoonists and illustrators. My drawing depicts a zombie assault on the famous intersection of Portage Avenue and Main Street in downtown Winnipeg. I tried to make this as hideous as (in)humanly possible but no doubt I'll top it someday. Stay tuned for MORE UNDEAD ACTION!
Here's me latest effort, the poster for the upcoming 7" release show by local garage rockin' faves The Vibrating Beds. Some folks have told me that they like the black and white version of this more than the color one so what the hell, here's both of 'em so you can make up yer own mind. More stuff coming up real soon so... Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!
