This is a poster I designed for When You Awake’s Free all ages concert. The show got a lot of local press exposure which means my design did too. It ended up on the LA Times blog and Filter Magazine. It was fun to see. I’d like to thank Jody Osborn and Bobbie Kittleman for all the great design projects.

The Alt-Country blog, When You Awake is turning two years old this month and to celebrate they are throwing a party at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles.Â I’ve done a number of mixtape covers for them which were really fun to illustrate. So I was thrilled when Jody asked me to design their poster for the event. It looks to be quite a fun night with lots of bands.Â Get your tickets here.

Another ‘When You Awake’Â illustration. My friend Jody has a country music blog called When You Awake and she releases mixtapes every so often. This one was for the Halloween mixtape, Cold Blooded Country featuring murder ballads and general lunacy.

There’s always some killin’ you got to do around the farm.”

A hard type of man, livin the rough n’ tumble life.
Another illustration for my friend Jody’s country music blog, When You Awake. [link] It’s the cover for a mixtape of country songs about men leading hard lives.
I was thinking of country stars in jail and so the character is loosely based on a young Merle Haggard and I was thinking of Mayberry for the jail cell.
