i did a poster for the mountain goats and erin mckeown and i realized i forgot to actually mention it on the thing where i am ostensibly supposed to be posting art
4 colors on white paper, edition of 63
thank you industry print shop in austin texas, who did a truly amazing job on this
thank you alyson west for organizing everything and tolerating all my amateur hour nonsense
thank you john darnielle for the impeccable art direction and for being just the coolest
thank you erin mckeown for also being the coolest and incredibly kind <i>(note the free album download on her website—-IT IS SO GOOD)</i>
i have thought about screen printing posters for musicians every day for like 6 years now—-that the first one i did was for my favorite band, and furthermore came out looking pretty okay seems OMINOUS.
anyway since i can’t help but disclose process stuff, here are some links to some of the material/inspiration/reference used in making the poster:
Walton Ford - Der Panterausbruch
Pieter Bruegel the Elder - Hunters in the Snow
tMG - Deuteronomy 2:10
tMG - Sourdoire Valley Song
tMG - Ox Baker Triumphant
Erin McKeown - The Politician
Erin McKeown - Histories
absolutely GORGEOUS. Stoked that I was the one who recommended Industry to John!

to help answer
1) legally, every Canadian who reads Lose #4 is required to have a flap of skin sewn over his or her genitals. i’m not sure about US law (it might differ from state to state?
2) other kids’ birthday parties
