Here’s an illustration I just did for Jody’s new mixtape at When You Awake.
We are very pleased to present When You Awakeâ€™s first collaborative covers mixtape, We All Go Twang. We put a call out to the When You Awake community and asked musicians to submit covers of some of our favorite songs. 12 musicians responded and we have the fruit of their glorious labors below. A big thank you to everyone who participated and toÂ Patrick GerrityÂ for the cover artwork. From all of us here at When You Awake, Happy Holidays!
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.
