acidfree gallery provided me the opportunity to work on yet another staple of my childhood viewing, the mighty voltron.
revisiting classic animation/movies in the name of research for a project is one of the best parts of my job, and this assignment was no different. it was great to spend some time with keith, lance, hunk, pidge and princess allura after a too-long hiatus.
this poster (along with a variant that will be previewed next week) will be sold at acidfreegallery‘s booth (#555) at wizard world philadelphia starting thursday, may 30 and running through sunday, june 2. i’ll be at their booth signing at 1 PM on friday, may 30, so if you’re at the show, please stop by and say something clever.
the black keys have enlisted me to do another gig poster for them, this time for last night’s show in my home state of pennsylvania.
i wanted to convey the power and energy underlying the keys’ music while also paying homage to the pittsburgh tour stop. to do so, i envisioned what might be lurking just beneath the surface of the giant steel mills that pittsburgh is famous for.
in addition to the regular (green) edition that was available at the show, i created a variant edition that is available exclusively in the strongstuff shop. i’ll be releasing my copies of both versions on wednesday, may 1. full details follow.

when the book has closed on my career, this will probably go down as the largest physical display of one of my posters. the design was used as part of an interior presentation case and printed as a limited edition run of 27″ x 40″ onesheets, but the primary application was a 30-foot tall, backlit grid wall inside the arclight cinema in hollywood.
when i accepted the assignment, i labeled it “intimiciting” (intimidating + exciting). as it turns out, it was every bit of both. such a fun job.
