Rest in Haste – No One Regifts Liquor

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

My friends from Rest in Haste just released a two-track 7 inch vinyl record featuring an illustration I made for them in the cover. My friend Filip from Capital Grey describes them as “Sounds like Queens of the Stone Age”. I am not sure I agree with Filip’s assessment in full, but I do wish they sang in Czech more often. In any case, you should buy their record. It’s pretty cool, and there are only five hundred of those covers out there.

As a finishing note, let me give you access to a giant resolution version of the cover art, in case you feel like printing it the size of your bedroom. You are welcome.

Pappy Tracker Icon

Monday, September 30th, 2013

I just finished the icon for Pappy Tracker, a new iOS app by Buzamoto that tracks all sightings and appearances of the extremely desired and almost impossible to find bourbon Pappy Van Winkle across instagram and twitter. To put it in Buzamoto’s words (from the description in iTunes):

By constantly monitoring Twitter and Instagram for up-to-date information about where others are finding this prized bourbon, you get a leg up on the competition. When it comes to tracking down this bourbon, knowledge is everything. The PappyTracker helps you find the information you need, and notifies you when new information surfaces.

After many trials and a lot of deliberation with Buza, we settled for a flat and simple style following the iOS 7 new graphic direction, and we chose to peg a location icon on the shoulder of a bottle to represent the action of tracking the Pappy. I am VERY satisfied with the result.

Laser Etching is Fun

Why did it take me so long to start doing this? Only the Eschaton knows.



I hope it looks kind of like this when I finish painting it.
