i’m superproud to have designed one of the sleeves for mondo‘s new assortment of batman : the animated series 7″ vinyl releases.
releasing this week at SDCC (booth #835), there are five different sleeves, each created by a different artist. i had my choice of villains for the project and i chose man-bat because a.) i’ve always loved his design and b.) it provided me the opportunity to create a set of die cut wings that fold off of the sleeve and expose the creature’s full form.
held at the colonial theatre (where scenes from the 1958 classic “the blob” were filmed) phoenixville, PA’s blobfest is a weekend-long celebration of monster and cult cinema. this year’s theme was “clash of the kaiju” and featured double bill showings of the blob with “mothra”, “king kong vs. godzilla”, and “the giant spider”.
the remainder of my new kaiju-centric “1961” screenprints (as well as the special online-only variant edition) will go on sale tuesday, july 15 at a random time in the strongstuff shop.

mondo offered me the opportunity to create a poster for one of my all-time favorite movies, robocop.
like so many other folks of my generation, the film’s mix of ultra-violence and biting satire made an indelible impression on my young self and the flawless designs of robocop and ed-209 inspire my imagination even to this day.
“your move, creep.”

i had the privilege of working on another exhibit poster for the petersen automotive museum. their newest show, “mustangs forever”, celebrates the iconic car’s 50th anniversary.
from the petersen website:
“few cars have captured the hearts of enthusiasts worldwide like the ford mustang. Introduced at the 1964 new york world’s fair, the mustang helped define automotive youth culture in america and was so eagerly embraced by the buying public that it quickly shattered all sales records. whether outfitted for performance, luxury, or economy, the mustang’s identity has remained strong and consistent in a way that has stood the test of time.”
looking forward to checking this one out while in LA later this year.
“mustangs forever” is currently open and runs through october 18, 2014.
to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the transformers franchise, acidfree gallery, will release foil and metal editions of my autobots and decepticons prints. offered as a combined color print for the first time, the editions showcase a new colorway. this also marks my first print on holographic foil and i’m pretty excited about the results.
“transform and roll out!”
