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!
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.

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.
Alternate version of Svenska 2. All you Danes out there please correct my grammar!
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.
Just finished the cover for the NYC OFFF festival (New York – Nov. 2-4, 2007). This is the book that’s given out to all attendees and features work by many of the speakers and presenters at the festival (might have to squint a little to read the titles better). I’ll be hosting a workshop / lecture, all the details are here. It will be a similar workshop to the one I did in Barcelona this summer and will be focusing on technique with a lot of deconstructions and hands on examples of my process and theory. As with Barcelona, space is limited (230 people per workshop this time), but unlike Barcelona the workshop is included in the cost of the festival pass, there’s no additional registration required, it’s just first come, first serve. You can snag tickets to the Festival here, as of this posting they are nearly sold out so get on it! As stated in an earlier post, there will be an ISO50 booth for all three days of the festival with shirts, prints, and music. See you in New York!
