Gord Downie, The Sadies, and The Conquering Sun

I was recently asked by Arts & Crafts Records to create album artwork for the upcoming collaborative album by Gord Downie and The Sadies.

The artwork was also used in the video shoot for the first single, “Crater”, directed by Norman Wong.

Here is some sample footage that will be in the video, which was actually used as the opening song to Hockey Night in Canada last week:

The album will be released April 15th, but is available for pre-order through the band’s website.

Hope you enjoyed the incredible amount of hometown Canadian content in this post!
Thanks, as always, to Arts & Crafts, and ADs Jonathan Shedletzky and Jenn Kitagawa :)

365 Days of Type

My friend Sabrina Smelko created the 365 Days of Type project last year, singlehandedly tackling each daily creation.
For 2014, Sabrina and her partner in crime Shawn Lovering, are showcasing contributions from other designers and illustrators.

Only 39 days in, there is some really great stuff in their gallery. Check out the website here –

wearenotspecial.ca, and follow all of the updates on their twitter – https://twitter.com/WeArentSpecial

Here’s my contribution, #39 :)

Interview with Frank151

I was recently interviewed by Marisa Aveling from Frank151 about my current show in Los Angeles, at the Scion AV Installation space.
I’ll be posting an update this week that is dedicated to the work that was created for (and with) the Scion team.
In the meantime, you can read my interview with Frank151 here :)

I just finished a poster for Unknown Mortal Orchestra and their upcoming 2014 Korean tour.
If you haven’t listened to them before, check out their site and prepare to have their songs stuck in your head for a long time.

Thanks, as always, to SuperColorSuper.
