My contribution to the Quentin vs. Coen show next week in NYC. If you’re in the area, you should come check out the show. It’s a show based on characters from the films of the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino. I chose to do a piece on Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction. Say ‘what’ again. This is a very limited print run, and will probably sell out at the show. I may have an extra 15 or so of my own that I’ll put up for sale after the show’s over.

UK rock band, To Catch a Thief, approached me about working with them on their new album packaging. They simply provided me with the title and I ran with it and came up with an art direction based on vintage horror films. This is just the cover, the rest of the layout is still in production. More to come later.

This is a play on the idea of “trust.” The laughing/spotted hyena is often viewed as a treacherous scavenger, stealing prey from other predators. In the Mtwara Region of Tanzania, it is believed that a child born at night while a hyena is crying will likely grow up to be a thief. I thought that the juxtaposition of a seedy creature, such as the hyena, and the honorable KDU creates a dynamic image that provokes a question of who is trustworthy? The obvious answer is that you can indeed trust the KDU.
