BAYSIDE - Live From The Bayside Social Club



There is something really awesome about doing a layout for a band you are 100% totally all about, would kill to work for, and listen to on a daily basis. For me that band has always been BAYSIDE. This layout was one of the most fun I've ever had on a layout. At first I was in a huge slump, I was working on like 10 other layouts, and just felt creatively drained. Until the band and manager had the idea of making it look like a punk rock flyer. I was so down and so excited, started to google flyers from Black Flag, NOFX, Misfits, etc, and came up with this beautiful idea. I really think it came to together very nicely. I wanted it to have a real dirty raw look. So i did most of this without the aid of friendly photoshop. I printed most of the images out, cut them out with a razor blade or scissors, and tape. I used the copier machine a lot too! Just like the old days. Check out the photos i took below of my "work files".

The inside of the CD are photos of fans with BAYSIDE tats, we didn't tell them what we were using the photos for, and hoping they'd find a nice surprise when they opened the CD. The disc face is my favorite part of the layout. I wanted people when they opened the cd, to see this hand written (possibly a burn!?) looking cd. and just be like "WTF!?" but i assure you its an actual real disc, made by a legit company. I am very pleased with out this turned out, from the art to the actual music. I suggest you buy it. What are you waiting for? Enjoy!











And here is the image i used for the front, found it very fitting for some reason.


If you would like i have uploaded a high resolution texture to use if you ever need a "photocopy black background". Click photo to download.

A HALLOWEEN TO REMEMBER!

Party Hard maaaan



My friend Jeanae asked to design a flyer last minute, i liked the way it turned out! TRAVI$ BICKLE + GUNS = PUNK ROCK!

"Hey, I'm not square, you're the one that's square. Your full of shit, man. What are you talking about? You walk out with those fuckin' creeps and low-lifes and degenerates out on the streets and you sell your little pussy for peanuts? For some low-life pimp who stands in the hall? And I'm square? You're the one that's square, man. I don't go screwing fuck with bunch of killers and junkies like you do. You call that bein' hip? What world are you from? "

BENEATH THE SKY - The Day The Music Died


This was a really fun project, the band approached us saying they wanted a 50's theme greaser kind of look for their upcoming album named "The Day The Music Died" and they had a tshirt design with zombies and a jukebox, so we went with that. And i have recently been dying to work with this amazing illustrator named Ray Frenden, so i called him up and he said sure I'll do it. So i sketched up the idea, and sent it over to him and a few days later he came in with this amazing piece. Anyways, enough words look at these really cool zombies!






The disc face is my favorite, i used 2 different blacks so it feels like grooves, if you run your fingers across this.


Here is how it came to shape. This is the sketch I sent to Ray...


This his sketch of my sketch...


...and that is Ray's final product. I loved the color scheme of this, but felt it was a little too "black light" so Ray was very cool about me messing with the colors and adding textures and what not.



We also printed a T-shirt with the zombies on it.
if you wish you buy this CD or tshirt, check out their webstore.

New T-Shirts!

I have designed a few new shirts. yum!






If you like any of these you can buy them at VictoryRecords.com. Except for the Catch22 shirt, you will have to go see them on
CATCH22's BIG SKANK TOUR




Oh and BIG HUGE MOSTER UPS to MIKE C. for drawing the big skank.
