Funk travelers, marketh thine calendars! Chromeo and Cut Copy will be taking over the historic Red Rocks Amphitheater later this year and we designed the poster. BOOM. Taking cues from West Coast psych legends like Rick Griffin and Randy Tuten, Mike Davis and Wes Winship went all the way in with this brand new design. Stay tuned for details about a screenprinted version.

Diving right into 2014, I started the first day of the year wrapping up a vector illustration of the historic Pillsbury "A" Mill Complex, located on Main St. along the Mississippi River. Expect to see more of these illustrations of the Twin Cities' beloved buildings, and who knows... maybe some prints?

It's that time of year again... Minneapolis' own Doomtree crew is taking over the city for the ninth year straight with sold out shows at Triple Rock Social Club and First Avenue's mainroom. We were asked to design and screenprint a poster to commemorate the festivities and here she is... one creature face for each year, designed by Mike Davis and screenprinted in super bright colors on French Pop-Tone Hot Fudge paper by Ben LaFond. Grab one at any of the remaining First Avenue Blowout 9 shows or in our online store in early January 2014!
Here are a few rough sketches from the creative process...
