Masters of Ink Interview

Jason Thibault and the excellent crew over at optimumwound.com were nice enough to include me in their artist interview series, "Masters of Ink". Which is pretty nifty, as I have always been a big fan of their website. Previous artists interrogated include Lee Bermejo, Nathan Fox, Jim Mahfood, and a lot of other guys and gals who I really look up to. So, if you ever wanted to know more about my tools, techniques, and process, just click the link below for 14 fun filled questions and answers.

A few weeks ago the charming Alex Spiro from NOBROW Magazine invited me to contribute to the second issue of his publication. NOBROW, is a biannual textless art magazine on sale at all good design bookshops in the UK + Europe and available worldwide at http://www.nobrow.net/. What makes the magazine even cooler is the incredible color and paper quality, individually numbered limited edition printing, and a roster chock full of the best illustrators in the business. Artists contributing to their first issue include: A. Ricard Allen, Blex Bolex, Paul Blow, Jordan Crane, McBess, and Emiliano Ponzi.

Obviously, the upcoming second issue will undoubtedly feature some serious talent, and I am honored to be part of this project. So start getting excited, because the new issue drops sometime in the Fall. Included below are some pictures of the first issue that Alex was kind enough to send me, and to be honest I have never handled a higher quality publication.

Cover art by Stuart Kolakovic, interior piece by the fantastic Paul Blow, and thanks again Alex for all the swag.

Fun with Typography

Since coming back to freelancing after my stint at Rolling Stone, I having been spending much of my time playing around with hand drawn type. After making some new things, which will soon be appearing in a new type section on my site, I decided to go back and complete a set of letters that I created around a year ago for promotional purposes. Enjoy, and keep your eyes peeled for more weird type.
