A flyer started, a show cancelled. Found this in the Perpetual Piles. I don’t remember what I did instead that night, unsurprisingly. Has anyone ever made a flyer for staying home? Maybe I should. XI/XXIV: I stayed home, made beats, Photoshopped and Watched TV! Oh, and blogged

Long Absence vs. Body Art + Snake Eggs

October 12, 2008

Obviously, the blog gland has been atrophied lately…here are a couple of recent flyers; honestly not much else worth posting at the moment. It’s been a great summer, sunny, lovely, and in my case, not really amenable to sitting down to art unless it’s necessary (i.e., the band need’s a flyer). And but so now as the nation’s economic woes remind us of the old proverb, “fire the gardner first [and the art dealer right after that]” I will do my best to tread water, and if there’s time (which unfortunately there may end up being a bit too much of in my case) I’ll try to art up a bit more. No promises, but:

My primary design pursuit since The Teen Ages has been making rock show flyers. For bands I’ve played in, and also occasionally shows put on by friends + associates. Actually I think the first flyer I ever did was for a show at The Bandstand in St. Martinville, LA. I was 14; a friend of mine named Jeremy put it on, and Urbosleeks, October Groundfly, Yellow Dye #5 and Stitch played. I saw the flyer once on the Fiddy Cent Draft Blog, but the page with it is gone now. I hope I run across it again sometime, I don’t have a copy. That show changed my life, in particular seeing Steve Miller play bass for the first time, and break a bass guitar string (something which has been a frequent occurance for me lately, for whatever reason). I also seem to recall doing a flyer for a show at The Wall on Jefferson Street in downtown Lafayette, LA, not sure if that was later on or even earlier [both would be late 1993 or 1994].

Nonetheless, here’s a couple of recent pieces for my current band, Air War:

I’m pretty stoked about the Tube flyer being printed in color. It’s a rare luxury. I’ve noticed Holocene’s flyers lately seem to be one-color using red or purple toner–pretty brilliant. I did once do a two-color xerox and spraypaint side for (The) Frames of Reference:

This image is slightly different from the printed/posted flyers. The sky [pink] is a scrap from a test of the stencil, attached to a handbill and scanned. The 11×17″ posters were all spraypainted directly, and the clouds went across the top, making a more pronounced horizon.

There are a couple of other Frames items I’ll eventually post–in my year and a half of playing drums in the band, I did several broadsides, a t-shirt and a couple of album covers.
