People often ask about the origins or significance of my posters so I’ll be posting the stories behind them from time to time. Pictured above is the "Vuela" print, a variation of the "1971" print. I created this after I first visited Spain; Vuela in Spanish means "Flight". I saw this word everywhere in the airports and it stuck with me. I spent most of my time on that trip in the city of Barcelona which is filled with design and art, it truly is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. This poster was meant to evoke the same sort of feelings I got from the people and places I encountered on that trip.

The 1976 Thermal is out now at the shop. It’s also 15% off, part of the Holiday sale that’s on now. This is the first long-sleeved shirt I’ve done, it’s on the American Apparel thermal which I absolutely love. It’s got a nice texture and it’s not too weighty. They’re moving fast so check them out!

Drove to Sacramento today to deliver the artwork for this Saturday’s Gallery Show. Stuck around for a while to watch them hanging the work, took some shots. Should end up looking nice, there will be some new stuff in there along with five large format pieces and some as yet unreleased work that’s just been printed for the first time. All the work is limited edition printed in Giclee on watercolor paper. Try to make it out and say hi…There will also be a live Tycho set and the whole thing is free for all ages. Info
I’ll be battling Rob Cordiner in Layer Tennis Tomorrow. I apparently won the coin toss so I’ll be going first. The whole thing kicks off at 12pm PST (GMT -6), details are here. Should be a good time, you can comment along in the forums of the Layer Tennis site.
