NO THEFT x Pablo Trucker

Pablo Trucker is working on their full length record right now. HUHZAH! I love em and their tunes. You may get to hear some new tunes at this show!

I started this poster on type. I usually see the rest of a piece around type. I stared at Pablo Trucker for 3 days in this masking I did using the font Alte Haas Grotesk. I then looked at old WWI black & white photos that i've been collecting and found a great one to base the image off of. I wanted to make it look like a book cover, something that you'd want to turn the page to find out why he's got his eyebrow cocked up and maybe at who its attention is given to. I haven't used my drawings with masking yet, so this is a step into another new direction. Design is endless.

GO to this show, it's gonna own. I'll be there too!

Gearing up for the Fall with modesty

In the past week i've sold quite a bit of my clothing for groceries sake. This has made me 1) cherish my remaining articles 2) made me want to live more simply 3) in that modesty having premium quality articles that last.

In saying that I'm on a mission for: A new casual & dress belt | J.Crew cardigan from a previous post | 3 fitted collar shirts that can handle tucked in our out & about | 2 bow ties | 5 more pairs of subtly interesting dress socks | a pair of corduroy's | and these Eastland gems beneath | AND a Falls scent of course.

I've never been so swamped. I feel like I say that often, but it's even more true each time I do. Maintaining all my involvements is quite a juggle and I cherish the patience/grace/encouragements from all my peeps involved in the different things with me. These are 2 posters I've recently done. I don't have time to explain em out, nice break right? :D
I can't wait to show Amanda DuFord's album that VANJA. & I jus finished, I think it's my best work yet.

ALSO my first solo show will be Sept. 3 at the Upper Room w/ Summer of Persimmons & The Head and The Heart. I'll be going by Thomas Carr Stiles for my solo work and I'll explain that sometime.

After Years of Waiting

J Crew delivers. I've been on a cardigan hunt for 4 years now. Each season I've been let down by quality & fit. This year J Crew made the cut/color/blend that i find just great! A proper cardigan is an investment that a gentleman should welcome. I've had my current cardigan for about 6 years now and it's time for a new one. It's functional, perfect for dress up/dress down, and really ties an outfit together. Looks great open & closed too, I can't say enough about a well made cardigan. Seasonally it's great, just perfect for the entrance of Fall as well as the start of the spring when its warming up but you still need some sleeves.

Now I'm going to sell one of my younger brothers to Egypt and then grovel my way back and depend on him years later when the famine strikes. This is my scheme to purchase the above.


The song you made famous he would do and then no one would remember your version because after hearing his version no one could dare think it was anybody's elses song. That's how amazing Cash was.
