What Glorious Things / New iPhone Wallpapers

Filed under: Design, Music

I recently wrapped up some artwork for my good friend Jason Hansen, who has a new band called What Glorious Things. The plan was to release his band’s EP via download only, but I convinced him to do a small run of CDs for any fans who might still appreciate holding some sort of physical product in their hands.

I ordered up a small quantity of my favorite paper in the world from the good folks at French Paper and designed envelopes for the CDs to easily slide into. A total of 50 were made (i.e. cut with an exacto knife and glued one by one) and each was numbered as an edition. A lot of people probably don’t care about this kind of stuff but I thank Jason for indulging the nerd in me and letting me try to create some sort of minimal experience for the release of his new music.

As an additional thanks for those who purchased the EP physically or from the band’s bandcamp site, we offered a series of iPhone wallpapers inspired by the art we’ve been working on for the EP and forthcoming album.

Just a quick note to say that I’ll be speaking at Trinity Artist’s 5×15 Series Tonight.

I’ll be speaking on my experience as an intern/volunteer at Hatch Show Print back in 2007 and how that experience has affected my work going forward. I have a lot of respect for the people behind the scenes at this event and the various dialogues about art that take place at 5×15. So if you’re in the Atlanta area – come out. It’ll be a good opportunity to get a peek at what some local artists are up to.

Wow! It’s been a while…

Anyway, ‘just found out from a friend that I won 2nd place in the ACP’s 2010 Design of the Year – Illustration category for my illustration in SCAN Magazine, the quarterly magazine put together by students at the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Atlanta campus. Had no idea this was even entered. ‘Nice surprise on a Sunday afternoon.

This is probably one of the most beautiful pieces of video I have ever seen. Featuring equally beautiful music by Keith Kenniff (of Helios, Goldmund fame). The first time I watched it I was just struck by how beautiful and weird and crazy life is… The second time, you begin to see the connection to each scene and the concept of the video itself. Do yourself a favor and take ten minutes of your life and watch this at least 3 times.

AS far as what I’m working on? I’ve decided to take a full time position with an agency based out of Columbus, Ohio that is involved in a pretty big project here in Atlanta. I’ll still be doing a bit of freelance on the side and hopefully I’ll finally get to some personal projects I’ve been dreaming up. I’m currently working on artwork for my good friend Tyler, who’s going to be putting out two new EPs very soon.



ATL Collective Poster – Graceland

The ATL Collective was established to foster the Atlanta music scene, encourage collaborations and cross-pollination and to create happenings that will inspire and entertain. Each month the collective picks one album to cover in its entirety. Next month, they’ll be covering Paul Simon’s Graceland. For the poster I chose to represent Simon’s travel to South Africa where he collaborated with several musicians there to achieve the sound of the record. The map, though, is of Atlanta – symbolizing the collective of Atlanta musicians traveling to one spot in order to give their own face to the music of Paul Simon.



SCAN illustration/Graduation

Previously, I mentioned that I had completed another illustration for SCAN, the magazine published by students at SCAD-Atlanta. Here is that illustration. I’m pretty pleased with the way it came out. I’m also glad that it was attached to an article by my friend Gray Chapman, who is an excellent writer with articles published in Paste Magazine, the Atlantan, and other fine publications. I’d say we make a pretty kick ass team.

Speaking of which, Gray and I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with our BFAs this weekend! ‘feels good to have accomplished that. Now to keep learning and creating. Tomorrow, I start working as a freelance designer for Matchstic. They are a fine group of people and have produced some incredible work. I am excited to learn from them and be an asset to their already strong team.



Almost there!
