Lo-Fi Grocery Store Lineup Poster
Hot Luck, 2019

Hot Luck is DIY casserole of the culinary and music world. With an impressive lineup of some of the country’s best chefs, there’s also quite the music lineup to boot. I designed a vintage-grocery-store themed lineup poster with some crunchy halftones and even crunchier prices. “Gwan...gitchoo some!” These old ads were so un-designed with a crazy mix of type and layout, so I decided to go all out.

Mohawk 10-Year Commemorative Poster, 2016

The Mohawk is one of Austin’s best music venues. In the first decade of operation, it has hosted acts of all kinds—from the Fleet Foxes to Iggy Pop, Big Freedia to The XX. This poster highlights the best and brightest to have come through those famed, yet slightly dirty doors. All Are Welcome.

Golden Age of Silver-Faced Receivers, 2018

Done for the annual Afterhours Poster Show, a themed event that raises money for local non-profits through an annual poster sale. This year, we worked with a group called Kids in a New Groove, which brings music and mentorship to children in foster care.

Fitting with the theme of music, I showcased—and illustrated—these painstakingly-accurate  stereo receivers made in the early 1970’s and 1980’s; real heavy hitters that are still sought after all these years later. From bottom to top: Pioneer SX-737 (1974-1976), Sansui 9090DB (1975-1977), Marantz 2285 (1977-1980), McInstosh 4100 (1982).

Inspiration

The Pioneer Stereo Receiver Model SX-737, manufactured in 1982. I had purchased this relic of a receiver and fixed it up a few months before the show. I was, and still am, enamored by the warmth of the lights, the gleen of the silver case, the details in the knobs and dials, and the countless design choises that make up the face.
This became the basis for my poster, featuring other such receivers that were all defined by the era.
