Records and Drums

One of the things I love doing most is painting drum heads! Its so much fun to see them in action when the bands play.

Heavy Hands asked me to illustrate one for them based off of a mask from Sri Lanka. They then used it for their record cover! Their music is great too - buy a copy of the record and you'll love it! : )

New Poster for Arthur Magazine Benefit

Here's a new show poster for Weird Owl, Traveling Circle, and Brooklyn Street Raga Association, playing at Glasslands on January 24th. This show is a benefit for the amazing Arthur Magazine.

I have been creating these posters almost completely digitally for a long time, but this time decided to use a traditional technique. This was done in pen and ink, with a guache painting on a separate piece, which I then layered together. I'll definitely be trying this method again in the future.

By the way, you can see all of my posters here.
