The Decemberists

It's no secret I'm a huge fan of the Decemberists and I was fortunate enough to be asked by them to do a gig poster for their Vancouver BC show (occurring tonight and again tomorrow night). The concept is inspired directly from their latest album, The Hazards of Love, and visually it's inspired by the lush forest and landscape paintings by the stop-motion master, Jiří Trnka.



I'll have a small stock of these at Comic-Con, which again starts tomorrow. Whatever is left will go in the store after the show.

Don't forget! Fleet Street Scandal will be at booth #1316. See you at the show!

ps: Coraline is on DVD now. Go get it! You can even watch it in 3D, although I can't guarantee the quality of the 3D is any good.

Rad video!

My buddy Jon recently designed the video for U2's latest single. I think it turned out pretty amazing. Check it out!

This Wednesday Kevin and I will once again be exhibiting at Comic-Con down in San Diego. I can't believe it's already been four years since our first one! And this year we'll be at a different location than we usually are. Normally you'd be able to find us in the exhibitor table area, but to celebrate the release of the new book we thought we needed a bigger space, so now you can find us among the booths, at booth #1316.

Here's a preview of what's in store for you at the Fleet Street Booth!

Yuki 7 makes her San Diego debut! We will have copies of our new book, Seductive Espionage: The World of Yuki 7 for sale at Comic-Con for the very first time, along with these other items:

- Limited supply of the Collector's Edition book!
- English, Japanese, and French Yuki posters!
- Yuki 7 shirts!
- Appearances by Don Shank, Megan Brain, and Elizabeth Ito!
- Lots of other surprises

Besides the Yuki prints, I'll have a st
ock of four of my prints at the show. Two of them you've seen already, International Hotel and Passepartout. And then I'll have two new ones. The first is the 17"x17" limited edition digital print "Phileas Fogg Checks the Time" (seen in my previous post).

The second is a very limited stock of a screenprinted gig poster I did for the band The Decemberists. I'll post the whole image after the poster premieres at the venue tomorrow, but until then here's a sneak peek:

It's going to be an amazing show. Make sure and stop by and say hello to us!

Phileas Fogg Checks the Time...

... is the name of this new piece. Just in time for Comic-Con, it's going to be a limited edition print with a run of only 75 prints. I'll have about 25 of them at the show and the rest will be online shortly after. Dimensions for the print are 17"x17". Digital.

I'll also have a new screenprint at the show as well which I'll post on here early next week.

More Comic-Con details coming soon.

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the Yuki show at Gallery Nucleus last Friday! It was a great launch for the book and almost all the artwork on the walls sold. There are still a few pieces left (including mine) so head over to the store to check them out.

Also, I recently did a few editorial illustrations for the latest issue of Monocle magazine. Here they are:
