I’ll be doing a poster show at Sacramento’s Artisan Gallery this Saturday, 11/10/07. There will be large format Giclee versions of many of my prints on display as well as a lot of 12×18" show posters. All will be for sale along with prints from the shop and t-shirts. Afterwards I’ll be doing a Tycho set with visuals and all. Try to make it out, it’s free and it’s a very cool venue so should be a lot of fun. This will be part of Sacramento’s "Second Saturday" art walk which is always a great time. The show runs from 6-11pm.

Heading back to San Francisco tomorrow after another amazing experience at the OFFF festival. It kept me pretty busy over the past week so I haven’t had much time to post up here or respond to comments, but I will be right back to it once I make it home and get some much needed rest. Again, I want to thank everyone who came out to my presentation, the workshop (pictured above), and the booth. It was great to meet and talk with so many people who are so passionate about design. Hope to see you all again next year.
Today is the final day of the OFFF festival in New York. I want to thank everyone who came out to see my talk on Friday and the workshop on Saturday. I’ll be around all day Sunday so if you haven’t already, stop by the ISO50 booth (right in front, no OFFF ticket needed) and say hi! I’ll also be playing a Tycho set Sunday night at the OFFF after party.
Tickets for the OFFF festival in New York (and, consequently, the ISO50 workshop) have sold out. Sorry to anybody who missed out. I will however have an ISO50 booth with prints, shirts, music etc. in the public area (no ticket required). I’ll be around all 3 days (Nov. 2, 3, 4) so stop by and say hello, ticket or no ticket!

The 1971 Print has been reprinted and is now in stock at the ISO50 Shop.
A lot of people have asked me what the significance of the year 1971 is (no, it’s not the year I was born). Hunter S. Thompson’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” first appeared as a two part series in Rolling Stone magazine that year. Wikipedia sums up the main theme of the book which was based on these articles:
“It explores the idea that 1971 was a turning point in hippie and drug culture in America, when the countercultural movement no longer had momentum and its innocence and optimism of the late 1960s turned to cynicism.”
This print sort of juxtaposes the design ideals of the 60′s: the earth-tones and swirling, psychedelic, patterns; with the harsh, solid forms of the gothic lettering.
Oh, and also 1971 just looks badass all stretched out like that.
The October issue of the ISO50 Newsletter is out now and among other things, announces the release of the “Svenska 1B” print (pictured above). This third and final version in the Svenska series is available now at the ISO50 Shop.
The newsletter also covers details on the upcoming New York OFFF festival and the upcoming Tycho single release date. You can read the newsletter here or sign up here to get the latest delivered straight to your inbox monthly.
As stated in the previous post, I’ll be hosting a workshop entitled “ISO50: Blending Analogue and Digital” at this year’s OFFF festival in New York. The festival runs Nov. 2-4. The workshop will be held Saturday, November 3rd, 2007 at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center in “Theater 2″. Things will get started at 11:30am and it goes through to 1:30pm. I’ll be focusing mainly on process and theory, with specific examples and PSD deconstructions.
Space is limited to 230 people and entry will be first come, first served at the door. The workshop is included in with an OFFF pass, available here.
