KSYM Pledge Drive 2011 - It's On!

It's Pledge Drive 2011 at KSYM! The above are this years t-shirt designs I did as premium offerings for a pledge of $25 or more to the mighty KSYM, 90.1 FM here in San Antonio.

The top shirt is for my Beatle loving freak and friend Richard Turner. Richard is celebrating the 25h Anniversary of his awesome Best Of The Beatles Show that's been on the air every Sunday morning from 9-12 since 1986! Congratulations Richard!

And as if his on air tribute to the Fab Four isn't enough - check out Richard's guitar store in Olmos Park, Redbone Guitar Boutique! He's created a replica of the Cavern Club within the store complete with tons of authentic Beatles memorabilia, swag and of course there are some wicked nice guitars, amps and other gear for sale, including both right and left-handed guitars like Hofner, Vox, Eastman, Duesenberg, Collings, and Gretsch, just to name a few! Do your self a favor and check it out!

The second shirt is for one of my beer drinking, music loving buds, Sir Bobby J and his Mainstream 120 Show. It's San Antonio's only all vinyl Jazz Show and you can check it out every Saturday Morning from 9-11.

Now, if only the folks that maintain the KSYM website were as dedicated, creative and imaginative as the DJ's.... Oh well, good thing it's all about the music! VIVA KSYM!

Lifeguard Series: Ross Tamlin

Wow, at first glance, these super nice oil paintings by artist Ross Tamlin appear to be photographs or possibly collages using old, discarded and weathered corrugated signs.

But no, in fact the paintings above are from the Lifeguard Series, currently on view at the Schubert Contemporary in Main Beach, Australia.

Man, I'd really, really love to have one of these.

That's Right,

Thanks to Junk Culture for the hook up!

Wicked funny!

Felt Macbook Air Sleeves

Although there is currently a short waiting list at Angie Davis' Byrd & Belle Studios, your order will be ready to ship within two weeks of your completed purchase.

I can't wait for mine to get here!

The above 13" MacBook Air case and more are available in any combination of the felt and leather colors they have available in their shop. Considering the fact that these are entirely hand crafted, they're well worth the wait!

The creator of these awesome pieces is Angie Davis. She lives on an island in the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis. Her live/work studio is a 1950’s building that was originally a school bus depot. The loft used to be the service bay and is surrounded by remnants of mechanical lifts, floor drains and antique power washers. She share's her space with her betrothed, a few listless felines and a 90-pound mutt named Gertrude.

Check out the full shop over at Esty: Byrd & Belle Studios and read more about Angie here: Interview.

Witches' Kitchen

While I'm no wizard in the kitchen, I'm really digging Witches' Kitchen, a 15-piece handcrafted kitchenware collection from Studio Tord Boontje.

As part of the Artecnica Design With Conscience project, the collection is a collaborative effort in sustainable design commissioned by Artecnica, designed by Studio Tord Boontje, and made by artisan communities in Brazil, Colombia, and Guatemala.

Very cool stuff.

Why does this sign remind me of every other conversation I've had with ad agency AEs?
