Brett Dennen Concert Poster and Other News

Six years of drawing live music came in handy for this assignment. I'm always happy when working with Ray Buetens and Staci Sambol of Slub Design, who hired me for this illustration. I haven't seen Brett Dennen live yet: I spent hours listening and making studies from photos and video. I hope to catch him when he tours near here.

And now, that other news. In August, my art will be hanging all over downtown South Deerfield, MA. Come see me in the Greenfield Savings Bank and the Day Lily boutique. All the pictures will be for sale.

The Carolina Chocolate Drops and the Spirit Family Reunion in Northampton, 04.11.14

I gave it a whirl anyway.
