Metamorphosis Mini-Tour Mounstraso 2018

The final graphic.

Metamorphosis asked me to do a tour graphic for a t-shirt. They asked for it to be a graphic that could be screen printed in two color.

I had talked with them a little bit about the graphic ideas. Possibly a tiger chicken bat idea, but they asked for a crab hand in there too. Here’s my process:

I started out with this collage as a sort of sketch for the graphic.

The next step was to print it out in cyan (or any color that could later be removed) to go over it with india ink.

This was my initial ink, when I saw it the next day I wasn’t that happy with it but I went with it anyways.

This was the first rendition of the tour graphic. I submitted it to the band as a preview but I told them it was okay but could be better. I thought of using some Peruvian landscape in the background printed as halftone dots, this one was too muddy as well. The band wanted me to use the logo I had previously drawn for them too, and hand-done text. We also talked about a different color scheme.

The next step was to print it out in two sheets to get higher detail.

Printing it bigger allowed me to trace it in India ink with higher detail.
Cyan removed and line art cleaned up!

This is where the tour graphic initially went, I drew the text by hand, I think this was what the band asked for. The final rendition was simplified a little bit from this, without the reflected text and the additional lines on the top part.

East Bay fliers for Eel shows

These fliers are for the upcoming EEL tour. I made these based on Chuck from Destitute and Dehydrated promotions ideas. Los Huaycos, my band is playing the one on the 26th at the Golden Bull:

Flier for tonights show and Alternative Tentacles catalog cover

This is a flier where I wanted to practice some blackletter calligraphy some more. I used a small calligraphy pen and blew up the text for some extra blown out grimy scruff. I had drawn the skull for something different. The dragon was another drawing.

Breakout is a band from Austin, they are gonna get down and dirty in Oakland. I stole the little Texas logo from Chaos in Tejas fest as well as the border. Los Huaycos, Acrylics and Pure are also playing.

This is next one is for the Alternative Tentacles catalog coming in this summer, maybe it’s already out, it was supposed to be ready by Punk Rock Bowling. The center graphic with the skull was something that I didn’t use for a logo project:

The Japanese letters say ‘Alternative’ on one corner and ‘Tentacles’ on the other. This graphic was approved by Jello Biafra.

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.
