Gigantic 'Cloudbursting' Hazy IPA

Gigantic Cloudbursting beer label
With great effervescent elation I'm happy to share this new hazy IPA bottle release from the talented brewmasters of Gigantic Brewing!

Gigantic Cloudbursting beer bottle
This particular brew is collaboration between Gigantic (Portland, OR) and Seattle’s Cloudburst Brewing. It was kismet when the name 'Cloudbursting' was passed my way and though there was some concept exploration, this idea came to fruition rather quickly and I'm super happy with the end result.

Part of the fun of working with Gigantic (other than the creative freedom, trust, and great suds) is getting to choose a quote that compliments the art and/or the beer to adorn the label. I went with this one from good ol' Al Einstein, which fit perfectly in relating to my current work, the beer, and the 'art' of drinking itself:

“Creativity is one of those hypnotic words which are prone to cast a spell upon our understanding and dissolve our thinking into haze.”

Gigantic and Bailey's Taproom also partnered up for the National Brain Tumor Society for the beer's initial release, which was very cool to hear about and hits home for a few reasons.

We just so happened to be on our annual summer Oregon Coast/Portland adventure during the brewery's release of Cloudbursting, so we dropped in with some buddies to drink some of that deliciously hazy devil juice!

My contribution to “Remastered - An Album Cover Art Show, in commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the 12" LP

Pulsatory Oblivion detail

I've been on a black and white linear bender lately and when asked to contribute to this show, the iconic Unknown Pleasures album, by Joy Division, was the first thing that popped into my head. After brainstorming for a day and reminiscing through my youthful musical influences and phases, I circled back around to this black and white beauty, created by then Factory Records designer, Peter Saville:


In the process, I found this inspiring interview with Peter Saville in which he explains where the image came from, why the band needed to have it, and what it represents. I'm not going to spoil it and highly recommend you give it a quick watch:


And while we're on the subject of film, Control is an amazing movie about the afflicted life of Ian Curtis and the story of Joy Division:


“Remastered” opens Saturday night, July 21st from 6-9pm at Faultline Artspace (815 High St, Oakland, CA). See a slew of iconic album cover homages from all these talented folks:

Ufomammut left their Italian domain, crossed the seas, and teamed up with White Hills to lay waste to the Elbo Room here in San Francisco. I was asked to interpret and commemorate their cacophonous massacre in the form of this handmade silkscreen poster. I'm quite pleased with the result and the masterful print execution of Monolith Press. Grab one from my shop here.
