I have two pages of artwork in this lovely and imposing book by super-cool Canadian person Clay Hayes. 11×14″ inches of rock mixed with 208 pages of roll published by Quirk Books. The work I’ve got featured: The New Pornographers (full page), Mission Of Burma, Farm Aid 2006, Melvins, and Stereolab. Some of the original prints are for sale on ETSY (except the Farm Aid one). It’s a great cross-section of artists working in a bunch of different styles. I recommend it (& Volume One, too!).
You can order either volume directly from Clay on the gigposters site, as well as peruse the overwhelming list of fantastically talented contributors.
