This was a fun commission based on an inside joke. I am always happy to do that kinda thing. There was writing on the bottom and a byline, but we felt privacy should be intact instead of the cover. Anyway, Happy New year from Lattaland!
Check out my new favorite band, The Torments!
I’m absolutely, positively, mother fuckin’ thrilled to formally announce that the last truly great rock n’ roll band, White Denim, made a HUGE 16×20 poster using one of my stupid drawings, and just in time for their fall Bonnaroo tour, man.
