Hand painted signage on drumskin

January 12, 2015 § Leave a comment

Some process shots from a recent project designing and painting marquis signage for a café, on drumskins. I’ll post more pics (including complete logo design) once they are installed. These ones show the process of prepping the skins to make them look old, and some of the hand lettering. The skins (one is 28″ the other is 16″) will be mounted on drums with lights inside. Can’t wait to see how they look!

New Drumskin: Turkey Vulture

August 9, 2013 § Leave a comment

I’ve been continuing to sneak in some visually creative work while on the road. This drumskin was commissioned by a talented percussionist based on the east coast of Canada. I was quite happy to get the ink out and paint this skin for his bass drum during a break from tour. The bird is a turkey vulture, a scavenger with a huge wing span that is built for gliding on thermals in search of food. Here are some process photos…

One of my favourite birds, we imagine this one is taking off out of the water,  the spray coming off its wings. 26″ drumskin framed with charcoal drum hoop.

Almost done framing my drumskins for (((HOVER))), which goes up tonight. Can’t wait to see them all together on the wall. The opening is this Friday at Ritual (1026 Valencia) – if you’re in the Bay area come on down/spread the word! Big thanks to my friend (and talented artist) Kate Bonner for letting me use her gorgeous studio for all this set up, and all her other help. Now let’s party!
