and so it begins
for years i've been claiming that i would create a website to showcase my artwork and various musical projects, and well, it just hasn't happened. first of all, i have no web design skills/knowledge what so ever, and on top of that i can't seem to find anyone who's willing to build a site for me... so for the sake of convenience i've created this here blog in order to keep any interested parties informed as to my past, present, and future projects.
i don't have anything in particular to report for this inaugural edition of the blog, so i'll just post an unseen piece of work created some time last year. it was based off the art i created for the reissue of tusk's debut "get ready", and was originally intended for a line of t-shirts that never really launched. the t-shirt line was meant to be an offshoot of hydra head records call "robotic boot", which theoretically would've produced high end custom garments with artwork by folks such as seldon hunt, aaron horkey, stephen o'malley, and myself. however, due to lack of experience on our part and lack of expertise on the part of those who weren't meant to help us in this endeavor, the project never really got off the ground. there was a small run of shirts made using designs from the aforementioned hunt, o'malley, and myself, and some of these made their way to a couple retail outlets.... but most of the shirts weren't made to our specifications and as a result we shitcanned the whole program... though it may one day be resurrected. i do have a few remaining copies of the "skull-stache" shirt i designed which i will auction off on e-bay at some point, which i will announce here when it's ready to roll.
other projects currently in the works:
xasthur layout, cavity layout, new musical project with james plotkin, etc....
more updates soon....
