It's high summer and time again for the Pitchfork Music Festival here in Chicago! As usual there is a great line up music this year. Check it out HERE. In conjunction with Pitchfork is the Flatstock Poster Convention, where I will have a booth with my posters and some other artwork. If you are lucky enough to be attending Pitchfork (looks to be sold out, and the weather, for once, looks like it won't be soul crushingly hot), stop by my booth and say hi!
This Thrusday (tomorrow, 7/16) I will also be attending a book signing at Quimby's Book Store.The book signing is for a book by Clay Hayes. Clay is the founder of Gigposters.com, a site that has been instrumental in exposing the art of gig posters to a much wider audience and creating the community of artists of which I am a part. The book, Gig Posters Volume 1: Rock Show Art of the 21st Century, is a beautiful compilation of some finest poster art being made today. Even better the book has 101 perforated and ready-to-hang posters. Me and fellow Chicago artists, Jay Ryan, Dan Grzeca, Delicious Design and Steve Walters will be present at Quimby's at 7:00PM along with Clay Hayes to be signing copies of the book.The above image is the poster of mine that was chosen to be my "tear out" poster. So if you missed out on getting the real thing, you can get the 11 x 14 inch version in the book. Hope to see you there!
