  • The Sword: Warp Riders

    I’ve been a fan of Texan-based metal band The Sword for the better part of 5 years now, and I was surprised recently by the release of their new album, Warp Riders. I picked up the album yesterday and, not only do the new tracks totally live up to The Sword’s talent but check out…

  • Skratch Bastid at the Signalnoise art show

    My pal Skratch Bastid put on a hell of a spectacle at the Signalnoise art show on April 25th at Resistor Gallery in Toronto. Not only did he play a solid line-up of great tunes, but he started ripping up the tables near the end of the evening. Check out this video shot and edited…

  • Reckless Love Album cover

    If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen me talking about the Finnish rock band Reckless Love over the past few months. The 4 boys in the band, Olli, Hessu, Jalle and Pepe hired me last year to create the band’s visual identity including the logo, a couple of cd single covers and…

I am extremely happy to have made it to Toronto for such a wicked time. I saw some exhilarating presentations by design industry leaders, met a…

  • Hyper Crush CD mock-up

    Here is a CD cover design I created for the 80s-style electro group Hyper Crush. Given the groups current visual language of extreme colors and retro motifs, I tried to create something that mixed the style of old K-Tel album covers with the over-the-top execution of Judas Priest. Other then the metallic letters, the Priest…

  • Daft Punk to score Tron 2

    I’m not normally one to re-post news items from other websites, but this article (brought to my attention by the Omega Code on Twitter) got me pretty excited. Daft Punk on Tron 2? I can’t think of a better group to tackle the job. Check it out: “French electronica duo Daft Punk has been signed…
