Basil Wolverton Show

Yesterday Leah and I travelled with our friends Ben and Laura down to Santa Ana through the post apocalyptic haze to set eyes upon MAD Magazine artist Basil Wolverton's show. I highly recommend this show to all cartoonists, animators, comic book artists and fans of those mediums. If you can't get there, be sure to pick up the The Original Art of Basil Wolverton by Last Gasp.

Check out this case filled with fantastic Wolverton schwagg! I especially love all the trading cards with bizarre and grotesque characters that have common names like 'Ron'.

Leah snapped this picture of me and artist Ben Tegel aka Baloney Boy in front of the gargantuan Wolverton head. You may also know Ben as the front man to LA's raw and rowdy rock n' roll band The Vacation.

Black Lips at the Troubadour

Last night I shot the Black Lips for Losanjealous at the Troubadour. It was a great show and the rowdiest I've been to since moving to LA. I couldn't stay up front by the stage for more than two songs before I was being smashed by rabid teen rockers.

YRB Magazine: Custom Type

Here's some custom type I did for a fashion spread in the latest issue of YRB Magazine. The spread features models as giant creatures terrorizing Los Angeles like King Kong or Godzilla. The type I created is very much inspired by classic monster movie posters.

I was also asked to create some sound effects type. Instantly I thought of Jack Kirby era Marvel comic books. So I poured over what reference I had on hand and come up with what you see below. Check out the magazine to see how it all fits together with the photography.

Burning Brides at the Viper Room

Burning Brides performed a triumphant homecoming show at the Viper Room last night. Who Rides the Tiger and Rolling Blackouts rocked the audience before the Burning Brides took the stage to deliver a glorious sonic pummeling. Members of The Binges were spotted getting their rock on at the front of the stage. Thanks to Losanjealous and our favorite radio station Indie 103.1. Burning Brides are currently on tour with Helmet.
