Last night my friend Greg from the band blood warrior hung out and made some diy patches on fabric and some pins. I recently had the pleasure of designing his new album for the band which will be released in a few months and we have been brainstorming little merch ideas for him to have until the record is released. We are also working on a tshirt design that will be printed at a later time.
Greg also sings for the band o’death which have been a favorite of mine for awhile. If you are a fan of that band you will probably also like blood warrior. It is much more stripped down and has less instruments. Take a listen here, and look out for the new album Letter Ghost.

I recently had the pleasure of doing an illustration for longtime friend Bryan Bruchman’s new band Mount Sharp. They have a new ep coming out/out right now called Weird Fears. The ep is pressed on 12in vinyl with one side being the music and the other side having an etching of the illustration I made for them. I’ve yet to see this in person but the pic below looks pretty sweet! I’m excited to see what it looks like when spinning. Pick these up directly from the band on the internets or at their live shows.
