sometimes I make punk fliers.
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.
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.
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:
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.
This one I did some black letter calligraphy on! Just started teaching myself how to do this.

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!
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.
