doberman gig poster

Doberman and Shark Infested Daughters will be playing at Costello's on December 12th. Here's the poster I made for the event, really happy with how this one turned out!

Doberman features members from Kataplexis, Nosis, The Fallacy, and Breathe Knives, so should be one you don't want to miss!

A couple process shots below from after I decided on the concept/general composition.

costellos gig poster

Another gig poster for Costello's. Planning to turn this concept into a print soon as well.

Go check out Sean Hamilton, also known for his work in bands Jenny and Of Anchors, at Costello's on Dec. 5th. Also playing are Gayla Glimmer and Jhor Sept (I want to ask both of them if those are their real names too!). 3 musicians for $4 sounds pretty good!

UofL lecture recap

Last week Sam and I went down to Lethbridge to give a couple talks to the students within the New Media faculty. I don't think I've been back on campus since I graduated, it was pretty crazy seeing all the ways in which the UofL had changed, as well as the ways it seemed to have not changed at all.

Neither of us had really done any public speaking like that before and it went better than either of us expected I think. The first lecture was pretty sparse, but the second lecture in the afternoon, had over 60 people with all available seats taken and students seeming to be content with sitting on the floor and standing along the walls. Almost no one fell asleep :)

Both the students and faculty seemed to have a good time, and it was overall a great experience. Hopefully they will have us back again in the future!

hot sauce

Earlier this week I posted the shirt design I made for CKXU.
This design was also used on a hot sauce bottle, in an alternate color scheme, seen above.
Roasted Habanero and Garlic is the flavor, sounds tasty!
