Some Signs For My Work

Here are some signs I made at work at the record store.
This sort of work doesn't pay very well but it's more gratifying than selling Black Keys CDs to dudes on their cell phones.

Son House and Elizabeth Cotten, ink on paper bag.

Yanni and "New Age Guy", ink and hi-lighter.
John Coltrane, chalk pen.

Three Actual Posters For Imagined Movies

In an effort to find employ making posters for actual things, I made some up. In ballpoint. For the record, I would love to watch these.
"The Debt,"  a noir starring Robert Mitchum, Lauren Bacall, Steve Buscemi, and Tadanobu Asano  

"Uzumaki," a psychological thriller starring Anna Karina, Chiwetel Ejifor and Benedict Cumberbatch

"The Girl From Drakulon," an adaptation of the "Vampirella"  comics, starring Nico and Harry Dean Stanton

Carl Perkins, Rachel & Dave

Another drawing for Fuel, this time for a CD of Carl Perkins songs.
Commissioned for a wedding/farewell present to my erstwile co-worker Rachel Nakanishi and her husband Dave.

Pizza Contest

Local pizza czars Sizzle Pie and grotesque arts and culture publication Pork held a contest for pizza themed artwork. I was informed today that I was the first runner up (which may or may not be the same as "second place") for my Pizzatallica and Pizza Priest pieces. Here they are along with my other two entries. I ran out of time before I could finish my Venom "Black Metal" slice drawing. I will receive some free pizza and a t-shirt. Not bad.
