Cape Cod Roots and Blues Festival 2019

Cape Cod Roots & Blues Festival 2019 – Poster Art

With more than 2000 visitors the very first annual Cape Cod Roots & Blues Festival in 2018 was a big hit. In consequence of that success the event organizers decided to launch year 2 of the music festival. The second CCRB festival took place at Nauset Beach (Outer Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA) on September 14th, 2019.

Again, I was responsible for the art direction of the festival. I created visuals like a poster, merchandise, the stage backdrop, a festival map, banners and flags, the visualization of the festival website and some more of the CCRB corporate design as well. This time we used a classic car and the local piping plover birds as a key visual illustration. There is also a rendition of G. Love & Special Sauce drawn as birds who are driving along the shore in their truck to meet a bunch of celebrating birds on the beach. Also surfing and the love to the sea and the nature are an essential and recurrent theme again.

I truly appreciate his trust in my work and the opportunity to be a part of the team! THX, G.!

Please visit the website capecodrootsandbluesfestival.com for further information. The 2019 lineup was G. Love & Special Sauce, Citizen Cope, Chadwick Stokes & The Pintos, Mihali (of Twiddle) and Clearcola.

Kooks Surfing Magazine #4

Kooks Surfing Magazine No. 4 Surf Art Cover Illustration

Hey there fellow surfer kook*!

I have to disappoint you dude, but this brand new gnarly surfing magazine doesn’t really exist. Unfortunately! It’s just ficticious and serves as a canvas for a series of free surf art works I create from time to time. But I could imagine that such a satirical surf mag would be fun to read.

The characters come alive while I doodle with no specific plan 9 in my mind. The general appearance is inspired by a humorous look at the surf culture paired with a gentle stylistic nudge from the Eighties. And my respect to the legend Rick Griffin who influenced my work as an surf artist.

This is part four of the series. Follow the links to find further cover illustrations:

Slightly Stoopid T-Shirt

Band merch T-shirt for Slightly Stoopid

Slightly Stoopid is an Ocean Beach, San Diego-based band formed in 1994 and discovered by Bradly Nowell (RIP), frontman and voice of iconic reggae, ska punk band Sublime. My work is inspired a lot by Brad and the music of both bands as well.

This year (2018), I was super lucky to create a band merch T-shirt artwork for one of my favorite bands. If one knows the Stoopids, I’m sure that one will recognize the apple pipe themed illustration. The tee will be soon available for purchase in two color versions on Stoopid’s official merch store.

Find Slightly Stoopid on slightlystoopid.com or listen to their music on spotify.com/stoopidofficial
