Make Cancer A No Brainer Auction-Help In The Fight Against Brain Tumors

No comments:

Brad Mastrine has been around the poster & music world a long time. Many of you know him but don't his story. Please take the time to read this:

My wife Mindy was diagnosed with 2 brain tumors in August 2012, weeks before her 40th birthday. No warning signs - just woke up to her having a grand mal seizure at 4am. Again, no warning signs, no history - totally out of the blue. Two craniotomies and 17 months of chemo later and she's doing well. Thank God! But the tumors will come back... The good news is that we're in a lull - our new normal for awhile. But as a husband and father, I can't idly sit waiting for the MRI scans to show growth. I was shocked at how little funding brain tumor research receives each year even though it’s the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children under age 20 and in males ages 20-39.

So I tapped my music friends and colleagues and have put together a pretty impressive auction IMHO and named it Make Cancer a No Brainer. And I need help spreading the word socially.
Some highlights:
-Phish Spusta 2010 signed by Marq and Phish
-Panic en la Playa gold uncut variant by Jeff Wood

Robert Bowen Fragile Nature Print

No comments:

Robert Bowen just released this new 22x17 Fragile Nature print. Limited edition to 50 and $50. Heres a bit about it and the link to it on his site.
"One of my latest paintings, Fragile Nature, is sort of a dual conversation about the delicate set of checks and balances that can keep an Eco System in line. Even though Dr. Ian Malcolm believes “life finds a way” that doesn’t mean a hell of a lot of damage cant be done if nature isn’t handled with the delicacy and respect we seem to be taking for granted all to often. Its also a direct statement about the declining population of bees world wide, and how if this problem continues on the path its already one, its going to blow up in our faces."
Fragile Nature is available as a 22×17 limited edition print at

This print shows the juxtaposition of these creatures characters in relation to how they are perceived; what you see is not always what you get...

Eric on the conception of the poster:
When I heard that Primus was touring on the soundtrack for the classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, I immediately knew that I needed to make a poster based on the terrifyingly tripped out boat scene. Hopefully my poster captures the candy-coated psychedelic vibes of both Primus and the film

Black Dragon Press are delighted to announce the release of the first installment in a series of licensed alternative movie posters celebrating the work of cult director Andrei Tarkovsky, Victo Ngai’s SOLARIS.

Art directed by Nicolas Delort, these illustrations beautifully capture the sense of awe and beauty in Tarkovsky’s work, and they’re very excited to offer these to you.

I am very thankful to James Park of Black Dragon Press and AD Nico Delort who have put so much faith in me. Being able to approach the project with my own interpretations of the film definitely makes the posters extra special to me." - Victo Ngai

Vasco Valentim Umberto & Antoni Maiovvi Tour Poster

No comments:

Vasco Valentim just released a new print for the European Tour of Umberto and Antoni Maiovvi!

Vascon on the design of the posters:
Their music is quite eerie, based and inspired in horror films, mainly from the 70s and 80s (think John Carpenter). A death nature in which raven eats the inside of a vampire skull is what I used to illustrate this chilling world.

The posters are printed with a metallic gold ink on black paper.

There are still some posters available here:

Billy Sours Design Posters

No comments:

New artist by the name of Billy Sours contacted me and he has some cool looking posters.

I asked him about a couple of the posters:
For the Hotelier poster I knew I wanted to do something hand drawn. Their music is a little bit more emotional than some of the other bands I've done posters for, so I thought a hand done illustration would fit best. The title of the band's most recent album, "Home Like No Place Is There," gave me the idea to play off of the saying, "home is where the heart is." This was translated through the window and the silhouette of the man in the heart.

For the You Blew It! poster I wanted to reference their song "The Fifties" and use some type of vintage imagery. I chose an old jukebox for the subject matter and decided to go with a cleaner look with some texture. I made sure to incorporate the other bands into the art by placing their names inside the buttons of the jukebox instead of just throwing their names in small type on the bottom of the poster (which I regretfully tend to do). I also made sure to reference Richmond, VA (RVA) in the poster somehow and decided to make them the "manufacturer" of the jukebox.

Ian Williams Pixies Boston Calling Music Festival Poster

No comments:

The Pixies are on tour once again and they are playing the Boston Calling Music Festival today and Ian Williams did the poster.

I asked him about the design:

I've been so lucky to be able to make a couple of posters for one of my favorite bands, The Pixies. Especially this one for a hometown show. I like to bring in an element of the city into the posters that I make and for this one I focused on the George Washington statue in the Boston Public Garden. I think it's such a cool statue the way that it's composed with the horse trotting above the viewer. I've been wanting to merge aspects of my painting with the boldness of poster graphics and so I created the tear which exposes this painting underneath it. The merge of the two different approaches for me simulates the band's music which encompasses many different styles molded into a cohesive sound. It was a ton of fun to make this and hope the fans enjoy it.

Poster will be on sale at the show and artist edition later on.

Shepard Fairey Peace and Justice Lotus Mural Wrap Up & Wheat Paste Poster Pictures

No comments:

Look on the left, a fellow graffiti artist who shale remain nameless

Peace and Justice Lotus mural by Shepard Fairey & the Obey Giant crew is now done and official the largest mural he has done. The mural was completed one day before the opening of the Printed Matters show at Library Street Collective in Detroit on Friday.

It also seems they did not stop working as wheat paste poster murals and the Obey Giant Icon began to be discovered around the city. It was great seeing a lot of the old school images out in the wild. The water Icon is a massive 15 feet high.
