Excited to announce that Irish electro-pop duo Young Wonder’s brand new full length album, Birth, will finally be released on May 18th – above is the collage art that I created for the record cover. Aside from the usual digital release, you can also pre-order the limited edition vinyl version here. Do not sleep on this because they will go fast so grab one before they’re gone. In the meantime, please check out the album teaser below.
The Sirens Simply Vanished is a piece of cut paper collage art using images taken from vintage magazines and other ephemera that are hand cut with an xacto knife and then dry adhered to paper using a gel medium. The original is roughly 16 inches wide by 20 inches high and was completed December 2014. This piece can be seen in FABA Collage Mag #2 – order your copy to read my interview on this particular piece.
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:
I recently completed another digital collage for GQ Style magazine (Germany) – this one was for an article about Los Angeles based fashion designers. The issue (Spring 2015) is out now so grab one if you see it.
Genetically Modified Visual Stimuli is a piece of cut paper collage art using images taken from vintage magazines and other ephemera that are hand cut with an xacto knife and then dry adhered to paper using a gel medium. The original is 10″ x 14″ and was completed March 2015
Here is the latest collage I created for Ireland-based electro-pop duo Young Wonder – it’s for their brand new single, Enchanted, released on Feel Good Lost. You can give the track a spin below and can purchase it on iTunes. Their debut LP Birth should be coming sooner rather than later so by all means, please stay tuned.
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.
I am excited to announce that I have been working with Irish electro-pop duo Young Wonder to create some collage cover art for their upcoming debut album & subsequent single releases. First up is Intergalactic, a heavenly slice of electronic pop ear candy (but don’t take my word for it – listen below) which dropped this past Tuesday. More to come in the next few months so stay tuned for info. In the meantime, do yourself a favor and check out the band on facebook, twitter, instagram, etc.
I was very honored to contribute a collage to the new book Z2A (Benzene Editions), which features 26 collage artists reinterpreting the alphabet. My contribution (for the letter “U”) is entitled Upperhand. It is a piece of cut paper collage art using images taken from vintage magazines and other ephemera that are hand cut with an xacto knife and then dry adhered to paper using a gel medium. The original size is roughly 10″ x 13″. The book is available in both print ($15) and digital ($3) formats – click here to pick one up or to just take a peek.
Thank you to Allan Beady for including me.
