MELVINS - Long Beach Posters

Melvins Long Beach poster, Alex's Bar

I'm excited to share my 5th MELVINS poster for their Electric Roach tour! Visualizing the sludgy heaviness of the Melvins' complex audioblasphemy ain't easy, but here's my attempt. The struggle of the mind is very real and this poor soul is going through some heaviness. If you can relate, I feel for ya.

And here are the extra melty lava foil variants. There's only 10 of these beauties in all of existence, so if it's hypnotic melty allure grabs you, snatch one up quickly and get lost in that swirly goo! These are are SO much more vibrant and prismatic when beheld in person.

Big thanks again to the Melvins, Secret Serpents and of course Monolith Press who once again amazed me with their printing expertise and perfection. These came out better than I could have imagined.

Daryll Peirce Vex painting

This small 10x10" acrylic on panel Vex painting recently came back into my life and is what inspired the Melvins more grotesque counterpart poster. Please inquire via email if interested.

DROP - UMA Gallery - Oakland, CA

Thanks to all who came out to our group show 'DROP' at the beautiful UMA Gallery. I got to reconnect with friends not seen in some time and meet some fascinating new folks. UMA is located in the historic Mosswood Chapel and Mortuary in Temescal, Oakland. They have monthly events and I highly recommend visiting, even if just to see the building itself.

And, thank you Donna and UMA for inviting me and presenting our work so beautifully in this historic and stunning chapel/mortuary space. That was definitely the most fun I’ve had in a mortuary...so far.

Crocker Art Museum - Sacramento, CA

Crocker Museum piece

Grateful to be showing this “A Momentary Quietus” piece at the Crocker Art Museum and to have my work in such a beautiful building among an incredible collection. Somehow this was my first time visiting the California capital area and Old Sacramento. What an ornately stunningly and beautiful museum! I love the fusing of the historical architecture with the newer modern wing. Also dug having he first real date night in a very long time.

The annual auction show will be on view and available for bidding from 5/26-6/5 though the Museum.

Direct link to my piece here. There's also a cringy video on that page where I explain this piece if you wan to see me uncomfortably talking about it and myself.

COVID 19 - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP

Covid 19 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Gold LP

Sometime back in April a friend hit me up about a need to focus his dystopian anxieties into a new project for his label. This compilation is the result, of which I was more than happy to be a part of for the same reason.

This record is a reaction against the onslaught of a disease that's brought global despair and with it the upending of life as we knew it. In the words of Bader, who runs Superhero Records, "I wanted to have this record represent the zeitgeist of the dystopian and lonely dark weeks during the complete shutdown." The album also features a track from Yuppicide, who's singer is the mutual friend who introduced us.

Some years back, my family and I were visiting/living in Berlin for a winter and I would hang in Bader's Cupcake Berlin shop in Friedrichshain for some solo sketching nights–plus cupcakes of course! I ended up creating some artwork for postcards and shirts for the shop and later, when Covid took over our world, he hit me up looking for stark black and white art that gave an overwhelming feeling of the isolation many of us were experiencing. My work does abide.

The album features both unreleased and remastered tracks from Covid 19, Hardcore Connection, I-Reject, Wisdom in Chains, Merauder, Doom Day, Down My Throat, First Blood, Vendetta, Yuppicide, T.S.O.L., Sheer Terror, Dmize, Devil Inside, Last Hope, Anticops, and Ryker's. It comes with a poster of the cover art as well as some stickers of my little covid-headed figure. Ominous layout by Timo Schlosser from Bureau Omega.

Melvins Valentine's Day Poster

Melvins Valentine's Day poster

I've got a new fluffy Melvins poster here to snuggle. Lizzy, a surprise multi-headed Valentine's Day gift, is inspired by some of the critters that have graced past album covers plus a few more friendly house pets.

This is my fourth poster for the band and was created for their romantic Valentine's soirée at the Mystic in Petaluma, CA. I got to catch the band play at Slim's a couple nights before in SF with bonus bassist Kevin Rutmanis (The Cows, Tomahawk) playing from the back balcony, pulverizing our guts from both ends with Steven McDonald. Plus, my Mom's two favorite bands opened!

I'm told these posters sold out rather quickly at the show, but I've got some more now available in my shop.

Also, in getting caught up with all things Mudhoney for this project, I checked out the I'm Now, the Story of Mudhoney documentary as well as a recent interview with frontman Mark Arm on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast. Both highly recommended in rediscovering the band's influence, history, and how their distorted sound developed along the way.

Melvins / Redd Kross Posters


Attempting to control chaos with this new poster for the Melvins and Redd Kross, who will be kicking off their “Escape From L.A.” U.S. tour with this show in my favorite venue in San Diego, The Casbah. This one took me on a journey with some twists and turns, but I’m extremely pleased with the end result. Remember, if you’re going to melt, always melt upwards!
