I first noticed Sydney-based design duo WBYK’s work on my recent trip to Australia for the Tycho tour. I was at the Metro Theater and the poster for a run of Best Coast shows immediately caught my eye. Once I got home and did a little more research I was really impressed by the depth of work in WBYK’s portfolio. I was also very surprised that their work somehow slipped by me for 7 years. Lots more good stuff over at their portfolio, some of the more exciting poster art I’ve seen in a while.
For those in the Austin, TX area, WBYK are having a gallery exhibit at Mondo through January 5th
I don’t know anything about these other than that they are apparently Hungarian Star Wars posters, they don’t make me think of Star Wars at all, and they are kind of scary. Other than that they’re awesome.

We’re going to take a break from recording the next Tycho album to play a special run of shows on the west coast next month including two nights right here in San Francisco. Really excited to end off this past year of shows back home. We’ll be sharing some new songs and visuals and a few other surprises. See you soon!
The first 100 people to buy tickets for each show will receive this limited edition poster, so be sure to get your tickets soon as they’ll be gone fast.
Also really excited to announce that some good friends will be supporting for these shows. First up, Christopher Willits will be opening the Jan 18th date at the Independent in San Francisco where he will be debuting some new video work. All of the other dates will feature DOOMbird as opener, who just released an excellent EP.

Hope to see you out, really excited for these shows, going to be the last of the year and happy to be sending 2012 off in Australia.
Absolutely gorgeous work from Owen Perry aka Circa 1983. Really getting close to that late 70s / early 80s National Geographic look with some of this stuff while a lot of it is thoroughly modern. Check the rest of his portfolio, it’s really deep and you can watch his work evolve. Excited to see where he takes it.
