    This month I had the pleasure of creating a desktop wallpaper for Design Milk. I chose a quote by the late, great Maya Angelou, who has obviously spoken and written countless words of wisdom… this one hit close to home. Head over to Design Milk to download it for yourself (for free)!

    WE LOVE OUR PARTNERS: Meg Vazquez 

    Artist, poster designer, music blogger, all things cool extraordinaire: we really dig Meg Vasquez. We found her through Tumblr when she was making show posters for her thesis at MICA. We thought they were pretty rad, so she started making them for us! She designs special posters (not the ones you see hanging on the club’s walls when you come visit) for artists to sign, which we in turn use for contesting. The artists love them so much that they sometimes steal them! Additionally, she creates art through her own company, Solid Shout. She has a store where you can buy her art, as well as copies of all the posters she has made in the past. You should also keep an eye out for contests, because you might win some of her work signed by your favorite artists. Basically, Meg is living the dream, and we’ll do anything to keep her going! Support a local artist and treat yourself to something beautiful, all at once.

    Work in progress on a gig poster for War on Drugs. This is the first poster I’ve collaborated on! As some of you may know, Nicolet Schenck and I have started Solid Shout together. I’ll pulling her in on this project and I can’t wait to see how her skills can be applied to this! I’m handling the type (which I’ve painted) and she’ll be adding some imagery for the base layer of the poster, stay tuned for more!

    Today I get to announce Adfero 8! It’s a list of the people and trends that are set to change the communication landscape in 2014. It was so fun coming up with concepts and watching this transform into something real. Check it out and make sure to take the quiz! :)

    Some, but not all, of the work I did for the upcoming “Fun-A-Day” show in Baltimore. It’s a rare occasion I pick up a paintbrush these days.
