High Infidelity Part 2



So I've already submitted one fake record design to the Last Record Shop exhibit at Public Pool gallery in Hamtramck, but I found time to do one more, a loving homage/tongue-in-cheek parody of the late '80s 4AD records I love (This Mortal Coil, Cocteau Twins, and the Lonely Is An Eyesore compilation, mainly). I got nothin' on legendary record sleeve designer Vaughan Oliver, but hopefully this is close enough for rock 'n' roll - or phony shoegaze/etherpop, in this case.

Pounce on this!

So glad to finally be able to share this illustration, the cover art for the upcoming book “The Deeds of Pounce” by my pal Benjamin Wachs — a tale of goblins adventuring through San Francisco! Pick up your copy via the publisher, Beating Windward Press.

Film history humor

Another swipe at the administration via Photoshop collage. I admit this was inspired at first by Karen Pence's hairdo, but the rest fell into place, as things often do with parody pieces like this. It helps if you know the poster to the 1986 Jonathan Demme movie first, of course.

Art history humor...

I channeled my inner John Heartfield, and hijacked Domenico Ghirlandaio's famous painting, to come up with this bit of obscure political commentary...

Speaking of art history, here's an illustration I did for the in-house volunteer docent scheduling web page at the Detroit Institute of Arts. When in Detroit, be sure to visit the Detroit Industry murals by Diego Rivera. If you're really lucky, I'll be there to tell you all about them!
