Just One More

Just one more. Just had to try it. That poster blows me away.

Then we got out of hand and did the last of the last studies. That’s it, one last little bugger picked out of our rotting teeth.

One badass van. Back to work.

ALL THE WARTS AND MOLES: Small post today. Been way busy. Wrapping up the most ambitious poster project I’ve even taken on. I started the beast last Thursday, and some 60 hours later, the thing is licked. Expect the full run down very, very soon. It’s for my art show next Wednesday at Office PDX on Alberta Street. You’ll be hearing tons about that too, if you choose to listen. Wednesday the 27th. Mark those Field Notes 18-Monther calendars. You better be there.

THIS KID’S BEEN GETTING A LOT OF PRESS ON HERE: Mikey Burton and some letterpress action. Seems like a pretty happy guy, with that smile and all. Pretty beardy, too.

KING OF THE BREEDS; Man, what next? Well, this. (Thanks Dan and Forrest!)

ALWAYS AWESOME: Mike Gaughan is going to do something awesome with his life. Mike, you already have. (Thanks, Mike!)

ON THE PLAYER THE LAST BUNCH OF DAYS: I’ve been “locked in the T-Z” section of my iTunes. Lots and lots of Tortoise, Wilco, Tom Waits, Whiskeytown and Yo La Tengo going on the last day or so. And about that new Wilco album, man, I am blown away. I’ve probably listened to it about six or seven times a day. Kinda weird. On the way to work, and on the way back too. Incredible. I’m sad it’s not longer!

Working with Mikey on that poster (and with Josh on the film) was one of my best design experiences ever. And it, like those logos you did, was for Team Obama. Felt very involved in the democratic process!

I took a letterpress class with Mr. Burton at Kent State, in that very studio! I can vouch for his happiness, beardliness and awesomeness.

I would say it’s approved and pull the trigger, get it done.


The lettering on the door does not do the work justice.

Get Mr. Gaughan to letter that door for you… and be very proud of what you have.

Hey, like this one. I’ve been watching the Van development with great interest. Will be looking for it driving around.
