This week two separate interviews have come out about my little art practice. One from case/luggage brand Incase that is about my wife Elizabeth and I’s work/life and one over at Riotfest’s Masters of Ink series about my concert poster work.
This year I’m offering 10 extra-special mystery tubes for the real heads! Each tube contains:
• 1 artist proof from the sold out Poster of the Week series
• 1 artist proof from the sold out Treasury of Shitting Dogs series
• 1 test print (16″ x 20″ or 18″ x 24″)
•1 Random art print
Each tube is $100 plus shipping and will be in my store the morning of November 24th!
The “Mr. D’s Snack Shack” print series is coming to an end! All twelve prints will be on display and remaining copies will be available for purchase. Refreshments provided by Land and Sea Dept. and Old Style—hope to see you there!
I was honored (and frankly surprised!) to be asked by ESPN to create an illustration based on what’s it’s been like in Chicago as the Cubs clinch the pennant/head into the World Series. I decided to focus on the team and city’s ability to rally when the odds are against us. See the article and illustrations from nine other Chicago artists’ here.
Preorder a limited edition screen print of the illustration here!
…who was I kidding saying I was taking a break? In 2014 I made a print of a long-gone Chicago hotdog stand called Pig Outs. It was for a show called “Outdoors” that Ethan D’Ercole put together. I really enjoyed drawing that weird little building and I kept coming back to it. I’ve always loved the weird little roadside shacks that pop up to serve the people their french fries and pizza puffs so I’ve settled on making a total of 12 prints with this subject matter before the end of the year.
They won’t follow a rigid schedule like in the past, there might be 3 in one month and 1 the next. Each print will be 18″ x 24″ (landscape) and will be in an edition of 45. They’ll cost $25 each and like my other series’ I’m offering a few discounted subscriptions here!
First up is an overdue reprint of “Pig Outs” which will be quickly followed by print #2, “Bunyon’s” of Cicero, IL!
Dare to Be Stupid is now back in stock! This collection of concert posters from the first TEN years of Drug Factory Press now features 14 more pages than the first. Available wherever weird books are sold or HERE in my store!

Black Friday is pretty much the worst American holiday but it’s a great excuse for me to clear out some of my test print pile. For every poster order placed on Friday 11/27 I’ll include a free test print of my choosing! The prints will be 16″ x 20″ and signed 1/1.
I’m super excited to come down to Austin in early November for Fun Fun Fun Fest, but ALSO for an art show my wife and I are having at Bearded Lady on 11/5. Dear Beer: is a collection of knick-knacks and ephemera for made up beer companies. It’ll featured embroideries, paintings, screen prints, and more. If you’re in Austin come through!

The art prints I made for the ‘Four Corners’ show in Portland at Upper Playground are now available in my store. The show was a killer lineup and more or less my best pals in the printing world. Thanks to Morning Breath Inc. for asking me to be involved!
