LecherousGaze_AutisticYouth_FreedomClub_Reckless

 

New punk flier for Alcoholocaust Presents, an upcoming show, fit, twisted, mix of rock and roll and hardcore. Lecherous Gaze, Autistic Youth, Freedom Club and Reckless. Friday November 8th, seems like it will be a good time, but I’ll be in Peru to play Leuzemia’s 30th anniversary show!

Some fliers for 2013

These are three fliers I made for upcoming Tankcrimes presents shows. The Infest show tickets are sold out, Bolt Thrower ones were also selling like hot cakes. These all happen to be at the Oakland Metro too.

Asmereir – Ritmo Barato illustration

Cabeza de Jabali (Warthog head) illustration and pre-flyer that the booking company, Evil Empire Peru, asked us to make:

 

The in progress tracing of Cabesa De Jabali. It’s kind of a self portrait:

 

Just the drawing of Cabesa de Jabali, this along with some other illustration will be used for ‘Ritmo Barato’ the upcoming album.

 

 

This is the cover for the previous album, a collection of demo’s, rehearsals and unreleased tracks. Cut and paste style:

New flyers and stuff for 2012

It’s been a minute…

New Bad Coyotes logo. The idea was that we needed a new logo. We researched some old album covers for ideas. There was some logo styles by The Ventures we were into and some other mostly 60’s rocknroll we were diggin’. But one look at the Perez Prado’s ‘Great  Mambos’ told us we should just scan the letters and rearrange them to work for our logo.

 

Thats a picture of the record we scanned to reiterate the letters for our new logo.

Bad Coyotes finally got out of the analog only realm and we started a fabo page, here’s the link if you wanna like us:

We will be recording a new cassette tape in the next month or so that should be making it to a Bandcamp page that will connect to our Fabo page soon too.

 

Punks flier attack:

All these have semi-large halftone dot’s so they look kinda funny on screen, but the hi-res will print nicely.

This is a Bloody Phoenix flyer I made just now for the people over at Six Weeks Records.

 

One of my bands, Uptown Leisure Boys is playing a gig this weekend with Abrupt for our cassette release so I had to make a flyer. My old friend Garzo from Peru will be playing with his new band out here Raised by Zebras.

 

My friend Josh is booking a show for Sickoids who is on tour from the east coast. He needed help with a flyer, so I made this one for him.

 

Ghoul’s Kickstarter video was an awesome project that I had a chance to work on. There were several parties involved. Dan Hashthrash was in charge of the shooting and editing for the first portion of the video. Ross Sewage was in charge of the sound and voice overdubs. Sean McGrath selected additional material for me to work with and gave me direction. Finally I was in charge of motion graphics —explosion. Not only were they happy with the video but funding was a success —another explosion. It was a good team team effort. Pledging ended merely 10 hours ago and they should be able to buy a van soon for there upcoming tour with Gwar. —okay another explosion.

Some upcoming layout stuff that I am stoked to be working on are ‘Toxic Waste’ Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust split with Andrei Bouzikov artwork on Tankcrimes. Also lots of stuff coming up on Shadow Kingdom Records, Nuclear War Now!, Buried by Time and Dust, a new release on Six Weeks Records and after a while and it looks like I might start working on some stuff with Prank Records again in the near future as well.

Normal show flyer hitting the streets, Ghoul “Transmission Zero”…

Normal Show at Sub Mission Gallery. This is for an upcoming Ceremony hardcore / punk / experimental show in San Francisco. I worked on this with direction from Ryan Brundage from Geldings. Printed at Econopress. We made this a 2 color job. Sort of a collage of some of the bands’ logos over a green some Ceremony t-shirt artwork.

 

Ghoul “Transmission Zero” is out now and shipping from Tankcrimes Records. Here is the printed gatefold LP cover after some color correction that I talked about in a previous post. The die-hard version of this comes with 3D glasses.

 

Here is the blue vinyl with the gatefold open behind it. We updated the traditional Ghoul center labels for this LP and used spot silver.

 

This was my favorite part to work on. I created this vector design with the supervision of Shaun “Digestor” McGrath. Trigonometrical fun, psychedelia and metal.

 

The back of the LP was influenced by a variety of old, very old records.

 

Saint Vitus “Die Healing” on Buried by Time and Dust with the Japanese style obi that wraps all the way around the jacket. This record has been spinning on my turntable frequently lately so I decided to make a post about it even though it came out a while back.

We worked on this late 2009 and it came out February 2010. I am really glad I was able to receive a copy from the label since it sold out very quickly. Die Healing was released on CD in 1995. It was never originally released on vinyl. This edition consists of 500 Black and 500 Green copies with embossed / cmyk+silver cover and booklet which includes lyrics, reviews and a forward by Dave Chandler himself.

 

Here it is featured with the Japanese style obi taken off.

 

We kept the labels simple for this release.

 

24 x 12 insert. For the cover we used an image that was used on the cd. Silver on the logo. One of my favorite methods that we used for this part of the layout was that instead of blurring the image to come up with a grayscale or cmyk image we opted to blow it up as is and keep the original halftone dots; pure black and white to avoid moiré.

 

The outcome gives halftone dots an organic natural rawness, perfect for Vitus.

 

The inside of the gatefold insert.

Thanks, up the punks!

 

P.S. on a side note anyone else notice how thrash metal came back a few years ago but (almost?) everyone seemed to forget the rototoms? If you don’t know what I mean listen to the first second and a half of Kreators’ ‘Pleasure to Kill’ and Possessed ‘Burning in Hell’ 0:15-0:17.

Flyer for Asmereir show

I am in Lima, Peru for a couple weeks to play bass with my band Asmereir at Inmortal Fest II. My band’s out of town shows in Arequipa and other provinces near there ended up falling through so we are organising a gig in Barranco instead.

I decided to make a quick flyer with an illustration for the show. The drummer Cesar had a silly idea for it, so I decided to roll with that.

Here’s little bit on the Illustration process.

A quick composite for tracing.

The traced composite using Wacom.

Here is a 300dpi print link of this for those interested.

Couple Flyers

From time to time people ask me to do some quick flyers for shows. Here is a couple sample’s for some upcoming Bay Area shows.

For this one Scotty from Tankcrimes came up with the idea. He handed me a quick sketch and I did the rest.

This one is for a 2 day festival that Jeff and Athena from Six Weeks are doing for the 10 year anniversary of the Short Fast and Loud zine. I started with SF+L by doing the front cover design of issue #15 in 2006. I have been in charge of doing the layout for the whole thing since then! The next issue will be #24 and will be out and for sale at this 10 year anniversary show.
