UPDATE: I Saw the Devil and NOVOS are sold out. If you missed these prints, there may be the possibly of getting one after the dust clears. Please post a comment in this blog post requesting to be on the waiting list (be sure to enter your email in the form). You will be contacted if an extra turns up.
UPDATE: THESE ITEMS ARE CURRENTLY FOR SALE IN MY ONLINE STORE RIGHT NOW.
NOTE: Last week, I got some emails expressing confusion about how my online store works. Here are some key tips:
1. My store is set up with a shopping cart so you can add multiple items, but the shopping cart does not hold your item. The item is not yours until you finish the transaction and it is possible for the items to sellout while you have them in your cart.
2. Shipping gets automatically added when you check out. You do not need to calculate shipping or add notes. Please check your paypal address and make sure it’s updated with your preferred shipping address.
3. ECheck orders are going to be refunded immediately. Please do not send eChecks.
4. Shipping to anywhere in the US is $6, anywhere else is $10. There is no charge for multiple posters in one order. If you order separately, your items will be shipped separately, even to the same address.
Tomorrow (5/18/11) at a random time, I will be putting my copies of “I Saw The Devil” and “NOVOS” prints for sale in my online store. For NOVOS, I will only be selling the regular color version, the variants are totally sold out. The “Mogwai” posters are also totally sold out as well and as per usual, I never reprint the same posters. Whenever I do live events (Flatstock, Renegade, etc), I usually/always have sold out prints available exclusively at my booth.
I SAW THE DEVIL
The glow effect is strong in this one. This poster is 24 x 36 inches and sports 4 screen printed colors. The edition size is 185 and all these prints are signed and numbered by me. They will be available in my online store for $60 (limit one per household). Standard shipping ($6 US, $10 international) applies here.
THINGS MADE NEW (NOVOS PRINT)
People are loving this one. This poster is 18 x 24 inches and sports 4 screen printed colors. The edition size is 50 (Artist’s copies, numbered AP) and all these prints are signed and numbered by me. They will be available in my online store for $50 (limit one per household). Standard shipping ($6 US, $10 international) applies here.
Supppps. I am thrilled to announce that I have a new print release for a short film that is still in production called NOVOS.
The print is titled “Things Made New” and is a 4 color screen printed poster on 18 x 24 inch 100 lb Lemon Drop French Paper. The entire edition size is 100, with 50 artist’s copies. I signed and numbered all the prints.
There is also a green color variant in an edition of 20.
The prints are gorgeous, the details came out nicely. To see more photos of these posters, please check out my flickr photo set.
For those of you that missed I Saw the Devil and NOVOS, I’ll be selling my copies of both posters at the same time next week (Mon, Tues, or Wed). I’ll make an announcement on this blog and on my facebook and twitter before the sale actually happens.
Have a good weekend.
Wow, what a thrill ride this week. I had four prints released this week (I Saw the Devil, Mogwai, and two NOVOS posters (regular and variant). I Saw the Devil and Mogwai were released early in the day on Thursday (5/12/11) on Mondo and my site respectively. Both of those prints sold out in less than ten minutes each. Then, at 11 pm PST that same day, the NOVOS prints were released on the NOVOS film site, with the variant selling out right away, making it my third sold out print in one day. The regular NOVOS prints sold out the morning after.
For those of you that missed out on I Saw the Devil and NOVOS, I will be selling both of those sometime next week. Please check this blog and my facebook/twitter as I will be making a post before they go on sale. For NOVOS, I will only be selling the regular color way.
The concert was quite awesome as my ears are still ringing. Mogwai never holds back when they play. The Mayan Theatre was the perfect place for them too, with it’s insane decor and Mayan themes, it really created an excellent mood and atmosphere. The band sold out of my posters before the show even started.
Backstage, there was a lot of celebrating. Apparently, it was Stuart Braithwaite’s (guitar, vocals) birthday that night and Martin Bulloch (drummer) had a child recently (because of that, he couldn’t join Mogwai on tour). Mogwai is super friendly and they all appreciated my poster and even signed one for me. Stuart told me the 2009 psoter is framed in his parents’ house back in Scotland. I had an incredibly hard time understanding half of what those Scots were saying, so I just nodded and smiled.
Heeeeyyyyyoooooo. Tis I, Kevin. I’m really excited to announce that I have officially added THREE, count em, THREE, new live events to my schedule for 2011.

In other news…
I’ve got some really exciting posters for some of the awesomest bands out there in the works as well as some other neat projects. I can’t reveal too much, but I’ve been super busy cranking out drawing after drawing and I am doing things I have never done before, artistically.
I’m also hoping I can get to Olly Moss’ solo show, (I’m calling it FREE BEER), at Gallery 1988 after I get out of Unique LA during the day. He’s sporting a plethora of new work and if you think you know what he’ll do, you’d best think again. Let’s all go?!? Yay? yay!
There will probably be a massive line, so you’re likely see to me outside, starting a fire with two sticks and writing “Day One” in my wilderness explorer journal.
UPDATE: The Thus Spoke Zarathustra Waiting List is now CLOSED.
UPDATE: The Appleseed Cast Tour Variant Poster and Art Print are sold out.
UPDATE: The Thus Spoke Zarathustra Prints have sold out. If you’re still interested in this print, I may have some available, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with “ZARATHUSTRA WAITING LIST” in the subject. I will reply if one turns up. THANKS
UPDATE: The Appleseed Cast Double Sets have sold out.
These are skins and decals custom made for the iPhone 4. They are strongly adhesive, but can be easily removed without leaving gooey residue on your phone. Thanks to all the people who voted for their favorite designs on facebook. Currently, I only have skins/decals for iPhone 4 devices.
To see more detail pictures of the iPhone 4 skins, please check out this slide show I put together:
WonderCon 2011 was a big hit. It was my first time doing it and I had such a blast. I prepared a slide show of photos, so please check those out! Big thanks to Jason Munn aka the Small Stakes for letting me, Justin, and Jessica crash at his place.
What is up? I guess I’ll start with the t-shirts, which I couldn’t be more excited about. I have three, count it, THREE, new t-shirts available for presale. I first showed off these puppies at my booth at SXSW (Flatstock in Austin) and they were a hit.
The three designs are available for presale right now and will begin shipping in early April. The shirts are printed on 50/50 poly cotton American Apparel, which is incredibly soft, light, and comfortable. The inks are water based, so you’re not wearing a giant vinyl sticker on your chest.
I have copies of my DUNE poster that I will be selling in mid April, after Phone Booth Gallery is done with their David Lynch group show. I sold a few copies at my booth at SXSW already. Before the prints go up for sale, I will make a full post with sales information and post to my usual channels (facebook, twitter, etc).
WONDERCON and UNIQUE LA
I am officially an exhibitor at both WonderCon and Unique LA, both of which are very exciting upcoming events where I can display my work, sell some stuff, and meet tons of people (maybe you?!?!). Please check out the links for more info.
That’s all for now. I have some other squirrels coming through different fiery hoops, but I don’t want to throw too much out there just yet. I will say that 2011 is going to be a fine year. Oh yes, a fine year.
PS, if you’re in the mood, I prepared a slide show of the wild times I had at Flatstock 29 during SXSW in Austin, TX, last week. Highlights were the the Cold War Kids, Devotchka, Boudin Creek Cafe, and the insane amount of people coming my booth.
