I made this gif of Don’s weird forehead movement from this week’s Mad Men. It’s unreal.
You may say I’m a dreamer
but the media men beg to differ
i’ve typed and deleted 7 different captions for this and i just. i don’t know what to say. i don’t have an appropriate gif. i don’t know what to say. i’m just going to go cry myself to sleep.
i did a poster for the mountain goats and erin mckeown and i realized i forgot to actually mention it on the thing where i am ostensibly supposed to be posting art
4 colors on white paper, edition of 63
thank you industry print shop in austin texas, who did a truly amazing job on this
thank you alyson west for organizing everything and tolerating all my amateur hour nonsense
thank you john darnielle for the impeccable art direction and for being just the coolest
thank you erin mckeown for also being the coolest and incredibly kind (note the free album download on her website—-IT IS SO GOOD)
and thank you trudy, whose last name i do not know, for doing the actual selling of the posters and for keeping me company before the show!
i have thought about screen printing posters for musicians every day for like 6 years now—-that the first one i did was for my favorite band, and furthermore came out looking pretty okay seems OMINOUS.
anyway since i can’t help but disclose process stuff, here are some links to some of the material/inspiration/reference used in making the poster:
Walton Ford - Der Panterausbruch
Pieter Bruegel the Elder - Hunters in the Snow
tMG - Deuteronomy 2:10
tMG - Sourdoire Valley Song
tMG - Ox Baker Triumphant
Erin McKeown - The Politician
Erin McKeown - Histories
A couple things: 1.) I kept forgetting that this show was coming up and that Mariah scored us tickets 2.) I had no clue it was called the GHOST CAVE INCUBATION TOUR 3.) That’s pretty cool 4.) This poster is too rad.
Radar has a superhero persona, created by my friend Brandi and me: the Scrambler: a well-intentioned hero of incredible strength who bursts on the scene to saves the day but makes a huge mess in the process.
“Help us, Scrambler!” the people cry, on the precipice of some terrible disaster.
“Scrambler, no!” they cry again, as he knocks them over the edge with his enthusiasm and good intentions.
Elisabeth does it again!
Real Estate - “Crime”
Thank god we have a new Scharpling directed Real Estate video.
My entire Lucky Peach article about Wylie Dufresne and wd-50 is up on Medium today, if you want to read it! The sentence I’m most proud of is definitely, “…poop should be renamed “doof,” since that is food backwards.”
This piece is nominated for a James Beard Award for Best Humor, in journalism.
I really liked this and think the world is ready for a Wylie Dufresne animated series.
Forg, the Winter Frog. (1)
My Dream: Someday Steve takes all these great characters he’s made and does an Avengers-like team-up. Cat Rackham, Turtie, Forg, Jeremy the Squirrel, and Wild West Wizard have to get together to solve a mystery or just fart around or something. I don’t know. I might just miss Turtie too much.
