Spike flyer for Bassliss.

I was messing around with some flyer artwork ideas for my son's band Bassliss. The one concept that came to mind was doing a drawing of his dog Spike with a mohawk.

This was the final outcome.

Punk rock flyer artwork


At first, I had a more detailed drawing I was going to use.

But while I was talking on the phone with someone I doodled this quick sketch of the dog sitting down. It was simpler and I just liked it more. Seems more punk rock to me; a distorted blown up pen drawing for a flyer.

Also, do you spell it flyer or flier? I can never remember.

This weeks episode I meet Jason Scott.

Jason is a sculptor of large and small-scale pieces, which includes jewelry. And it all seems to relate back to when he studied to be a sushi chef years ago.

Philip Salamone

This week I meet painter Philip Salamone

One interesting thing I find out in this conversation... my studio is literally across the street from his and we have never met before. So I'm glad I got a chance to talk to him. Philip's work is all over town, including the "Faces of Incarceration" exhibit at the Overture Center. He teaches at both the University of Wisconsin - Madison and also has classes at his studio, the Atwood Atelier.

A nice email.

It's so touching that we were able to help someone, even if it was just a little bit, as they go through a difficult time.
