The first record I got to design and screen print. Huak‘s – Yorba Linda. Printed on Kraft paper and is a 2 color print. I also designed the record sticker. I think 200-250 of these were made. I really love this record and am super happy with how it looks! Still available through the band if you want to grab one!
Finally got a physical copy of this album in my hands! Slim Wild Boar & his Forsaken Shadow – Self Titled. Released in 2014. I did the album cover illustration as well as the record sticker with the boar and text on it.

For the last few months I have been working towards to launch of my new project called the Portland Patch Project. It is basically a project where I curate 12 different artists to create a design in which will be getting made into sewn patches. 1 patch will be released every month by a different artists and between 100-300 patches will be made of each design. I will also be adding surprises throughout the year including screen prints, pins and possibly more patches!
The first patch in the project for January 2015 is Steve ‘Stivo’ Zittel‘s Maine Makers Club patch. I have just received these in hand and they look great! You can purchase these here and can choose between buying all the available patches individually or in a subscription which saves you money and gets you a few extra goodies. All patches so far are $6 and shipping is free.
I also have a older Maine patch that I designed and a screen print of Steve’s design available. Free is you order a subscription!
Other artists that will be making designs include… Ryan LaMunyon, Eric Hou, Hannah Rosengren, Kris Johnsen, Reuben J. Little, Amy Teh and a few more to be announced!
After this weekend patches will be available at the stores Pinecone+Chickadee, The Portland Museum of Art, Ferdinand & Kurier in Portland, Maine if you would like to purchase these in person. Pricing may change slightly at stores.
The man himself Stivo with his awesome wife Allison!

This o’death and Death Vessel print is now up for sale in my Etsy Shop. I have about 10 of these left and 100% of sales after shipping and Etsy processing charges is still going towards o’death to help them with their recent robbery that happened while on tour. Read more about it here. (http://www.gofundme.com/gk4wyc). These were for sale at their show at SPACE Gallery in Portland, ME the other night with all money going towards the band as well, I think we sold a good amount of posters, the leftovers were given to the band. So this is the only place to get them before they are gone forever!
