This was the poster created for Josh Ritter's album release of Sermon on the Rocks in the Fall of 2015. We made a limited run of posters for each of the record stores that had early releases of the album.
Carolina Chocolate Drops played New Years' Eve at the Ryman Auditorium as the opening band for Old Crow Medicine Show. This poster was sold at that show.
Acony Records contacted me about doing a series of posters that were all connected to encourage folks to collect the whole set. It seemed logical that I continue the neighborhood series that I'd started years ago for this project. All of the shows took place in Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia and Georgia--- Neighbors.

One of the most ridiculously fun projects to work on....
Spam has a food truck that tours all over the countryside, usually pairing up with big festivals and fairs. They hire artists from each city to make a poster commemorating their visit. For Nashville, they came into town for CMA Fest and asked if I would design a poster that captured the vibe of Nashville. I don't know if I succeeded in capturing the vibe per say, but I definitely got one small aspect of it right. I love the farm dances that happen just outside of town every so often. There's a string band playing tunes while someone volunteers to call the dances and generally speaking, there's usually a potluck involved. It's one of my favorite things that happens in Nashville and I decided to pitch it to the Spam folks and they loved it! So, here's my version of a Bell's Bend Farm dance, farm cats and all.
