  • As mentioned recently, I unearthed two copies of mine and Adam Pobiak’s long sold out collaboration for Kyuss Lives in a forgotten roll tube.  These sought after prints have now been put up in my online store for anyone who might have missed out on them the first time round.

  • Just found a few copies of mine and @apobiak’s sold out Kyuss Lives poster from a few years ago.  I’ll have them with me this weekend at Screenadelica in Liverpool and will put them up on my web store afterward if no one picks them up.  #kyuss #kyusslives #rockcity #screenadelica #soundcity #soundscity2013 #gigposter  #screenprint #soldout #stonerrock

  • KYUSS LIVES!  Process #2

The first (gold) layer finished.  We’ve used a really nice speedball metallic ink through a T45 screen so the coverage is nice and thick.  There’s a subtle halftone worked in there based on the original pencils from one of my elements as well.
