Godzila

March 4, 2012

I made this illo based on one of my favorite songs by the band Niña. The song is called Godzila (yeah with one “l”.) The song starts with “He bought a dinosaur costume, now he feels he is Godzilla…”

Here is the song.

And here is the illo.

Quijada

October 27, 2011

I lived in the beautiful State of Veracruz, Mexico from elementary through middle school. During those years I was exposed to the traditional music from Veracruz, called Son Jarocho. One of the most unusual instruments played in Son Jarocho is the Quijada de Burro (Donkey’s Jaw.) The Quijada is played with a deer’s antler. As weird as it sounds, the quijada is the perfect percussion instrument! Here‘s an example of the quijada being played in a Son Jarocho.

So I decided to do this little dude playing the quijada for the Day of the Dead.

I was invited to Artsprojekt a while back but I didn’t have time to do anything with it. Finally after a few months I created some iPhone cases, just in time for the holidays!
Here is the link, make sure you get yours!

Steamroller Smackdown!

September 7, 2010

I love making posters. And when I got the opportunity to design a GIANT poster I couldn’t let it pass. Every year the SVC here in Seattle has its Wayzgoose letter press and Steamroller Smackdown, where a bunch of agencies and design studios around town participate.

This year the Design Studio decided to go with my idea, so in collaboration with my buddy Jeff Wilkson, I designed this year’s poster. A lot of friends from the studio came to help us carve the huge piece of linoleum and we got it done in just a few hours.

It was very fun to carve, but the printing was definitely the highlight, not just for us but for the audience. We decided to go full-on with the Japanese theme and the whole team got headbands a-la Daniel San.

I believe we impressed the judges as well, because our poster WON the Smackdown! Here are some pics of the process, carving, printing, playing, etc.

Sasquatch 09

March 29, 2009

I’ve been designing posters for the Sasquatch! Music Festival for the past few years. I didn’t do it last year, I didn’t even go, but this year I got the invite to design a poster again. I got Of Montreal. I have a few of their albums on my ipod, I like them, I think it will be fun. So far I have no idea what I’ll come up with, but as soon as I do, I will post some sketches or something here. I’m still undecided on the printing, I’ve been printing all my posters myself, I enjoy it, but it is hard when you have to burn, reclaim, print, etc. yourself. We’ll see.
