Post #1173 – FABA Collage Mag

FABA collage Magazine issue 2

I was very excited to receive my copy of FABA Collage Mag #2 in the mail yesterday, which includes two brand new collages I contributed (Bloodfire and The Sirens Simply Vanished) as well as short interviews about each piece and a photo of my studio space.

I don’t think many people know this, but FABA Collage Mag gives a percentage of it’s profits to each of the artists  featured in each issue (unlike most other small art publications, which often charge a submission fee just to even be considered for inclusion).  Much respect to the crew behind this mag for that, and for stepping up and doing something positive.   It’s not about “Do-It-Yourself”, it’s about “Doing-It-Together.”  That’s an attitude that I can get behind.

And I’m honored to be included in issue #2, along with so many other great artists. Please consider ordering a copy for yourself:

Post #1169 – Sturgill Simpson poster

Sturgill Simpson poster by Joe Castro

I recently had the honor of designing this print for Sturgill Simpson’s sold out show at the Theater of Living Arts (TLA) in Philly. These were a gift to the band from Live Nation, who wanted the poster to have a psychedelic vibe. This is a 3 color silkscreen on 100# Poptone Berrylicious French paper, printed by ABNRML and features a custom collage  I created specifically for the poster.  Only 60 of these were produced and I have a very limited number for sale in the shop so, if you are interested, be sure to get one before they are gone.
