On Friday, July 11th, I’ll be at the opening of the LOOK 4 show at FOE Gallery in Northampton…
I was in three gig-playing bands previous to The Demographic: TALLER THAN gOD (early 90s), HAPPY (mid 90s), and then The No-Shadow Kick (1998-2007). I used to make all the gig posters, because making the flyers was more fun than playing the shows. Funny thing was, I never put a whole lot of effort into making them (as you will surely see in the images below). I’m definitely not posting these because I’m proud of them, that’s for sure. I post them as my own little visual record of the non-existent music scene of early ’90s Haverhill, Mass. and the actually-pretty-cool Northampton music scene of the late ’90s/early aughts.

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.
Hey! Check out these illustration/collages of cute lil’ farm & zoo animals I’ve been working on. They are chubby and/or adorable and all woody ‘n’ stuff. They’re all 12″x12″ square and printed on heavy non-glossy card stock. They’re $18 each, available directly from me or on ETSY. Look for more in the coming months!
Every three or four weeks, I see a new link get passed around the comic/geek/design circles. It’s usually called something like “Movie/TV/Video Game Minimalist Posters” or “Some Fucking Stupid Shit Re-Imagined As Vintage Paperbacks” or “Look At All These Pop Culture References Reduced To Simple Colors And Shapes” or what the fuck ever.

Here’s a flyer I made for an upcoming rock show for The Demographic. Continue reading
Hello, Tom-Update-Starved-Ultra-Fanz. How are your empty meaningless lives? Feeling a bit low, lately, huh? It’s probably because I’ve been busy. Well, cancel those suicide plans! I’m here to tell you what I was up to in the third quarter of 2010.
HCR: I’ve been chipping away at a new WordPress Continue reading
