Gov’t Mule at The Mahalia Jackson Theatre, New Orleans Poster by Chuck Sperry

No comments:

With all the kickass posters Chuck has created this year I really wonder if and when he sleeps.

Details from the Print Godfather of San Francisco :

Gov’t Mule’s night show during Jazzfest is a tradition dating back over 10 years. Following a one year absence last year, The Tradition Continues Friday April 30, 2010 when Gov’t Mule returns to New Orleans and plays the gorgeous Mahalia Jackson Theatre across from The French Quarter.

As the first theatre to reopen since Hurricane Katrina, The Mahalia Jackson recalls the vibe, beauty and spirit of The Saenger Theatre and The Orpheum, two of the band’s (and fans’) favorite venues and sites of truly memorable shows.

Joining Gov’t Mule will be 7 Walkers Featuring Bill Kreutzmann & Papa Mali.

Todds backstory on the poster:
The Tulsa image was inspired by the last track off the Dead Weather's new album, Rolling in a Burning Tire. However, the track was recently cut from the final album making this a bit of foreshadowing (it could appear as a B-Side). The Tulsa image was also a collaboration with my good friend Rob Jones.

Banksy Gives $300k Painting to Band to Resolve Naming Mess

No comments:

Copyright woes in the contemporary art world aren’t limited to Shepard Fairey. According to Telegraph, Banksy has given one of his paintings, valued at $300,000, to a band sharing its name with the artist’s recent film, “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” The gift was offered both as an apology for using the title and as a request for the band to change its name.

The band, now known as Brace Yourself, received a large-scale black-and-white painting featuring the Grim Reaper driving a dodgem car. Amidst plans to use the painting as a backdrop for gigs, the recipients intend to display the painting in a gallery.

Find the full story at Telegraph.

Return of the MYSTERIOUS TUBES! From Nakatomi

No comments:

Man, has it been over 4 months since Nakatomi's last one already? Time flies when you’re traveling through time in a Delorean.

Nakatomi Print Labs prints a LOT of stuff. And printing leads to mis-prints. Some misprints are just too ‘almost perfect’ to throw out. OTHERS are used as test sheets and printed over top of a whole bunch making unique one-of a kind prints.

Those are the scratch/dents! ALMOST perfect, but not close enough to sell. Some of them are signed, but instead of numbered, there’s an “X” in the corner. The 5 or so ‘If you’ve seen what I’ve seen prints’ are glow in the darks that we put in WAY too much glow ink. Made the other ink all pebbly, but still pretty neat. Trust me, there’s a lot more you’re not seeing.

Yes, Test sheets! They’ve got like 25 of these, and one is going in each of the 1st 25 mystery tube orders. (more if they can scrounge ‘em up. They are printing every day!)

And of course, we’ll be putting in TOTALLY NORMAL prints that are on the site as well.

So here’s what you get-

Each tube will get you a random T-shirt in your size plus 4 prints- OR- No shirt and 5 prints.

As with all their Tube Sales, if you have ordered from them before, they’ll make every effort to make sure all NEW posters and shirts come your way! If you order more than one tube, they’ll do the same!

They probably have enough stuff for 50 tubes total, and as I’m writing this blog entry, they have about 35 left

The Dead Weather Birmingham poster by Aesthetic Apparatus

The Dead Weather already have a new record that's about to be released. Damn that Jack White is a productive fellow. With a new record, of course, comes a bit of touring and AA were commissioned to do a poster for their stop in Birmingham, Alabama. The young lady portrayed in this poster would like nothing more than to be welcomed into your loving arms. Do not deny her what you both know is right!

The Search Concludes Art Print by Mike Klay

No comments:

Get this for your friend that skateboards and they will LOVE you!

Based off the mega ramp at the end of the 1987 Bones Brigade movie: The Search for Animal ChinSkaters pictured from left to right: Mike McGill, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Tony Hawk

Here's a little background to the movie if you haven't seen it:

Twenty-three years ago in 1987, Animal Chin was released, and it instantly became one of the most well received videos in skateboarding. Fourth and fifth generation VHS copies passed from skater to skater around the world. Directed by then legendary skater Stacy Peralta and produced by his preeminent skateboard company Powell-Peralta, it featured the Bones Brigade corps of young pro skaters: Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Mike McGill, Tommy Guerrero and skinny little Tony Hawk. The acting quality and background music were not far off from porn—but this was skateboarding.

There is a plot, sort of. The five skaters are on a quest to find a missing skate master, Won Ton “Animal” Chin. Along the way, they skate the Wallos ditch in Hawaii (and eat poi and fruit), the streets of San Francisco, a halfpipe in Bakersfield and the Pink Motel’s pool in Vegas. They skate at a garage nightspot with a lounge MC named Johnny Rad who scats skateboarder gobbledygook, then sends them to skate a still-legendary dream ramp built in an Oceanside, California, pasture. They don’t find Animal Chin, but they have fun skating.

SABER interview on

No comments:

Known as one of the best graffiti writers of all-time, SABER can also be described as a pioneer, legend, hero, Guinness World Records holder, and activist. Most of all though, he is an artist. An artist in the true sense of the word. One with keen and insightful observations and expressions of the world he lives in, the beauty that surrounds him, and the injustices that affect him. He has dedicated his entire adult life to the work he believes in, often at great risk to himself and his body.

Underneath his prolific throw-ups, burners, and tags lies someone who is just as capable with the paint brush as he is the spray can. He has proven to be able to masterfully create on a wall, canvas, or with wood or metal. SABER has shown at renowned galleries and has traveled throughout the world, blessing walls from Los Angeles and San Francisco to New York to Korea. He is also extremely thoughtful and well-spoken and the following is an interview AM was lucky enough to conduct with the artist.

Works by Various American and British Artists
Exhibition Dates: 1 May 2010 – 30 May 2010
Gallery Opening Date: 30 April 2010 7-10pm
Reception Date: 1 May 2010 6-9pm

My Addiction Gallery’s inaugural exhibition, “God Save the Streets,” offers several examples of street and urban contemporary art from England and the United States, two countries that have played key roles in the development of this style. Prints and originals by artists of both nations pose some intriguing questions about the ways in which people from different countries communicate the importance of their individual cultures. This exhibition aims to familiarize viewers with the diverse artistic and contextual styles of British and American culture as well as how they critique one another through the use of relevant social and political content. The exploration of these topics aptly calls attention to the relationship between American and British street and urban contemporary art, both visually and culturally, and the signifiers of cultural identity found in these works are certainly not to be missed.
Summer Gallery Hours: Saturday – Sunday: 1pm–6pm
(Street Art Salon – First Wednesdays: 7pm and by appointment)
Free to the public every day

My Addiction Gallery specializes in limited edition prints and originals by street and urban contemporary artists from around the world. The gallery is located in the Firestone Building on the southwest corner of Sixth Street and Sixth Avenue. Parking is available behind the building, as well as on Ferro Avenue and Seventh Street.

Dark Star Orchestra – Firehouse Goldenvoice Series reaches 100. Chuck Sperry and Dave Hunter poster goodness

No comments:

WOW Chuck and Dave really killed it with this weekend.

From Chuck :

The Firehouse Goldenvoice Series of posters has reached number 100, with the promise of the next 100 posters and a bright future for the series ahead.

Many Thanks to David Lefkowitz for commissioning 100 posters for Goldenvoice, and making all this possible.

That’s why this pivotal poster includes numbers 100 and 101 in one piece designed and printed by Chuck Sperry and Dave Hunter.

The band on the poster is the Dark Star Orchestra, who recreate the music of the Grateful Dead. Dark Star Orchestra gathers the tribe – really most of the same people, their children and friends - who inspired The Original psychedelic rock promoter Chet Helms to commission the very first modern rock posters by Stanley Mouse, Wes Wilson, Rick Griffin, Alton Kelley and Victor Moscoso.

The venue is the Regency which occupies the very same room - then called the Avalon Ballroom - where Mr. Helms promoted the first Grateful Dead shows for his production company, the Family Dog. It seemed appropriate to end the first 100 and begin the next 100 right where it all started.

In fact, when Dave and I delivered the posters on Friday to The Regency, there was Stanley Mouse with easel and canvas – painting a Skull and Roses – right in the lobby.

The inspiration for the poster is the Grateful Dead song “Sugar Magnolia” with it’s follow through to “Sunshine Daydream.”

With much respect and appreciation to the roots of the modern rock art poster, and with “next-level” design and printing techniques, Dave Hunter and Chuck Sperry present 100-101 – a psychedelic thank you, a friendly rock and roll IOU to the masters of the past, and a cheerful iridescent / metallic good morning to the future.

Dark Star Orchestra at The Regency
April 23 and 24, 2010
Firehouse Goldenvoice Series Number 100
Edition of 150
6 colors on archival cream paper
35″ x 23″

This Poster and it’s variants will be released at and on Dave Hunter’s site at 12 noon PST on Monday, April 26, 2010.

There are 3 variants also

Speckled Egg Edition of 20 on white with reflective white flecks paper
