MEG VAZQUEZ

//Ask//   Other Good Stuff   

I'm Meg; equal parts designer, illustrator, and printmaker currently residing in Washington, DC. This is a blog of my process + current projects. Feel free to ask me anything (but keep it polite) and thanks for visiting!

    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!

    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.

A follow up to the progress shots we posted earlier, 2014 is going to be beautiful.

    Remember those new prints I talked about earlier this week? Now they’re available in my store! I’ll also be selling them at MICA’s Art Market but if you’re feeling impatient you should grab them now!

    Finally finished a project that’s been in the works for over a year. So excited with how this turned out! Metal Lungies has been around since 2005 and has had its logo since then. It isn’t current and doesn’t match the content we push out so I came up with this (with input from Boris). Soon we’ll unveil a website that matches the new brand! Always a work in progress.
