Jason Noble benefit

Well, I would urge all of you to go buy the print set that twelve artists, myself included, put together to help offset Jason Noble's (Rodan, Rachels, Shipping News) cancer treatment costs, but the entire edition of 100 sets sold out in under 12 hours! $20,000 raised that quickly. Mighty impressive, and our thanks to all of you who donated. For more info on the set, please see here:

Jeff Mueller put the project together, and prints were created by Nick Butcher, Mat Daly, Dan Grzeca, Dan MacAdam, Dan McCarthy, Jeff Mueller, Jay Ryan, Kerri Sancomb, Diana Sudyka, Brady Vest, Steve Walters, and myself. All packaged in a letterpressed folio created my Mr Mueller.

Since many of you may never see the actual prints, here's a peek at the one I created, titled "Everything Changes", inspired by the lyrics and artwork of Rodan's Rusty LP. And that is, of course, Jason's native Louisville in the background.

Get well soon, Jason.

Shellac, Shannon Wright, and others are also playing benefit shows for Jason soon. More information on the shows, as well as a journal of Jason's progress can be found here:

New on its way!

I just spent today redesigning the look of Once my friend Jereme has had time to work on the coding of the site, it'll be a nice-looking, easy-to-use online store and portfolio. Here's a preview of what it will look like.

Books I'm in. Go buy them.

I've been lucky enough to have my work in several books in the past few years, including a couple of great ones in the past couple of months. If you haven't seen these yet, check em out.

Gig Posters: Rock Show Art of the 21st Century, by Clayton Hayes, Quirk Books. Clay's this crazy Canuck who got all of us poster artists organized through his amazing online archive of posters, He's the reason many of us are making a living off our art these days, and I can't thank the guy enough. He just edited this first collection of posters, and it's a handsome tome. Highly recommended.

Also out there somewhere (if anyone can help me get a copy, I'd be very grateful) is this 720 page book that accompanies the museum show Sonic Youth: Sensational Fix. The exhibit, which includes some of the work I've done for them in the past, is slowly moving from museum to museum in Europe. A friend sent me photos of my pages in the book.

And here are some older books I'm in, still worth checking out:

The Art of Modern Rock, by Paul Grushkin and Dennis King, Chronicle, 2004

The Art of Musical Maintenance

Panda Meat, edited by Frank Kozik, Last Gasp, 2005

Simple Screenprinting, By Annie Stromquist, Lark Books, 2004
