This is the latest flier I have made, for Danzig and Ghoul at the Warfield. This was a collaboration with Tankcrimes direction, he picked out the old horror movie screen shot. We had never made a flier for Danzig so we were taking it back to the early 90’s and 80’s—all black and white cut and paste style, charge by phone info included and no URL’s (oh woops! just noticed the .com on the AXS logo). Stoked for our friends from Ghoul to be playing this show.

Some of the old black and white Samhain and Misfits fliers were really classic, one with the Necros comes to mind. Also old Goldenvoice fliers / two color posters, the one Otis & Biscuits made for Venom, Exodus & Hirax is awesome, 625 Thrashcore hooked me up with that one a while back.

Spazz LP's La Revancha and Dwarf Jester Rising

 

I also recently received a care package from 625 Thrashcore for both of these projects. SpazzLa Revancha‘ and ‘Dwarf Jester Rising‘, these look fantastic. La Revencha is on screen printed chip board by Monolith Press, we are currently working on another re-issue of that with reverse board and two spot colors from Pirates Press.

Drawing skulls don’t pay bills

but they are fun to draw with a sharpie on unpaid bills.

Nothing new out in a while that I can recall that I worked on.

Currently finishing up Blasphemophagher “The III Command of the Absolute Chaos” layout. LP approval is going on right now and CD is about to be sent off. Pictures of that when it comes out. Awesome paintings by Paolo “Madman” Girardi.

Ghoul “Transmission Zero” is at the press right now and is out due Nov. 8 on Tankcrimes. Great artwork by Bill Hauser! The band and label were thrilled with the artwork but not exactly happy with the coloring so Bill was nice enough to send us a layered version. They had me change it to their desire and match the color scheme they had in mind. Here’s a before:

And after:

Night Fever LP CASSETTE / Obsessor CASSETTE / Cannabis Corpse LP CD / Conqueror Box set / Abigail LP

Probably the highest profile job that has most recently come out that I was a part of in the layout / design was the Cannabis Corpse Beneath the Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise LP/CD on Tankcrimes. Crazy concept from the band with art by Andrei Bouzikov, logo by Barf. Check it out:

Listen to a track here.

Some other cool new stuff going on at Tankcrimes that I had the pleasure to work on was the screen printed jacket for Night Fever, here is the mock up:

And then the actual screen print photo, printed on chipboard, 3 up, uncut:

Insert here, pretty much exactly as they sent it with a minor text addition and some pre-press work:

The cassette version of the Night Fever folded out, pretty much just reiterated the LP insert to fit in a cassette J-card; along with the Obsessor tape cover, (logo by Sean McGrath art by Andrei Bouzikov):

Another amazing project that recently came out that was awesome to work on was the Conqueror box set. The packaging here is insane, definitely first time for a metal box made in china for me. They are a brutal Black Metal band from Canada, this amazing release is on Nuclear War Now! productions:

I also helped out with the layout of the regular version of this and the CD. To check out more pictures of this awesome project click here.

To order it from NWN click here.

Another recent project which is totally killer with Nuclear War Now was the Abigail LP / CD The Lord Satan.

This should be out now too so check out the NWN store to purchase it soon too, cheers!

Pirates Press Record of the Week

Record of The Week is a blog that mentions releases over at Pirates Press. Skimming through the first page I found a few gems on Tankcrimes, Nuclear War Now Productions, and Buried by Time and Dust that I helped design or prepare files for print.

Okay back to cranking the finishing touches on Short Fast and Loud #24, 10 year anniversary issue!

Bunch of layouts

This is the Born Against ‘Rebel Sound of Shit and Failure’ LP jacket reissue on Prank Records. The technical print problem with the original Prank Records version of this LP was that the halftone dots weren’t big enough and the overprint wasn’t set properly. This reissue looks much better than the first reissue on Prank and also looks more like the original release put out on Vermiform Records.

Layout for the Municipal Waste LP/CD on Earache:

Conqueror/Black Witchery split LP on Nuclear War Now! Productions:

I have done many many more awesome LP layouts for Nuclear War Now! Productions, and I am excited to be including those soon.
