My first album of standup and storytelling came out digitally in June of this year (previously) and I started an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds to press a limited edition of the record onto hot pink vinyl. That campaign was fully funded, and the records are now in production. And as of today, venerated DC punk rock label Dischord Records (Fugazi, Minor Threat) will be distributing the 12" vinyl version of my album! You can preorder a copy here. [more inside]
I have been designing gig posters, record sleeves, cd covers and other assorted music ephemera since mid-2004. The pieces range from letterpress to offset and silkscreened works. This year I finally got my act together enough to compile nearly all of it into a website featuring nearly a decade's worth of work with new stuff getting produced and added all the time.

Tonight, Thursday, at 8pm EDT (0000 Fri UTC), in Spaceport, Indiana, White Star Balloons will launch a robotic balloon up into the jet stream, hoping to be the first amateur team to ever fly a small balloon all the way across the Atlantic Ocean and land it on the other side--whether that be Europe, Africa, or points east. No amateur team has ever done this. The farthest amateur flight so far sank 200 miles short of Ireland in 2008. Join us for the launch tonight and track the flight for the next three days! With a little help from Metafilter, I wrote and designed an identification label message for the balloon in sixteen different languages.
My band's first full length album is available for digital download. [more inside]
