Spike flyer for Bassliss.

I was messing around with some flyer artwork ideas for my son's band Bassliss. The one concept that came to mind was doing a drawing of his dog Spike with a mohawk.

This was the final outcome.

Punk rock flyer artwork


At first, I had a more detailed drawing I was going to use.

But while I was talking on the phone with someone I doodled this quick sketch of the dog sitting down. It was simpler and I just liked it more. Seems more punk rock to me; a distorted blown up pen drawing for a flyer.

Also, do you spell it flyer or flier? I can never remember.

Vintage Illustration Artwork from Calling All Girls Digest from 1962

Here is some illustration artwork from a vintage magazine digest I found from 1962 called "Calling all girls". This was a magazine that was for teens that later became Young Miss magazine. It has a lot of really cool two-color illustrations for each of the articles in the digest.
If you would like to see more of the books that I've collected from resale shops over the years I also sell them in my eBay store.



Each issue also had a minicomic called Tizzie by Kate Osann. Tizzy, the title character, was a stereotypical teen-aged American girl. The episode drawn in this comic was Tizzie and her first job as a babysitter. And much like the rest of the book it used a two-color theme.





I actually like to try and recreate old ads like this and repurpose the artwork by illustrating them for band flyers.

Overseas shipping part 2.

I was eventually able to explain the situation and they are going to look into it. So it's closer to getting figured out at least.

This week I meet Sharon Bjyrd

Sharon is a painter who moved here from Chicago. She started out going to school for commercial art, which I realize is what we called it before it was graphic design. The story for the inspiration that started her interest in painting? Grace Jones. One of my favorite reasons so far. You can see more of her work on her Instagram.
