captains log 0131: Fire Sale

UPDATE NUMERO TWO: sale is winding down, just calendar preorders left, and those will end tomorrow (thursday), so thanks again for all the orders and kind words. important note: if you requested a shipping refund and don't get one by end of thursday, drop us a note, sarah's taking care of them currently. lotta figuring stuff out on her part, we can't combine all orders because somethings (pins) don't ship great with other things (posters), so its kinda a balancing act, what can ship together and what can't. appreciate your patience and if you don't get a refund by friday, drop us a note.
UPDATE: hey, thanks for the orders, hopefully everyone's having an ok experience with that new store. sarah's going through emails and trying to get back to people as soon as possible. let us know if you see specific problems. til then, this is great. great job joe.
so, i have a bunch of stuff for sale, head over here to check it out. i actually have two stores, one with posters and one with pins and patches and other smaller items perfect for stocking stuffers. and let me tell you, any kid under the age of, like, 18, is going to be bummed to get those as stocking stuffers.

let me know if you have any questions, i tried to set things up correctly but its a lot to manage, and sarah usually runs the sale itself while i run off into the woods. if you see a weird shipping cost, or accidentally purchase two of something you meant to purchase one of, let us know and we'll get it fixed. thanks again for the years of support, means a lot to me and my family.

apologies on the lack of sale, i am finishing up my 2018 lunar calendar, and am hoping to sell that with poster orders so people can save on shipping. better than selling some stuff this week, some stuff next week. obviously i should have just shut my yapper about having a sale until i was ready to have the sale, but i had hopes and dreams. and now, dust, all dust. but, if you're on my mailing list, i'll be notifying you when things go up for sale. appreciate your patience.

til then, keep surfin' the bird.

slacking on my updates. looking like ... next week i'll be selling my QOTSA prints, plus some uncut alien handbill prints, plus a super limited amount of my Captain America Civil War metal prints. so that should be something. i also did a print for foo fighters but alas, the show was canceled. you can still pick up the print here, with proceeds going to charity. not sure if they're selling the variant at another time or mixing it in with the regulars or what. other than that, not much to report, hope everyone's Thanksgiving goes good. may it be filled with turkey, wild or otherwise. (EDIT - this week, though not 'early' this week, apologies. trying to finish up a thing).

also, unrelated
- dog eat dog
- seeya later, gator.
- finished season 2. pretty fun.
- fincher related. that mindhunter is pretty good. he's got the eye.
- this coke commercial has a Don Bluth feel to the animation. and this was plain neat.
- still surprised Blade Runner 2: Leon's Revenge didn't do well. amazing work.

long time no update. how to sum up my last month....hmmm....well i went to india. and it was a trip. other than that, i have a couple band prints coming out soon, if you're into music. other than that, another round of links for my friends.
- bladerunner 2: the quickening. honestly, i really enjoyed it. not 'its better than the original' enjoyed, but still, a beautiful looking film that washed over me like warm slime. i could care about how much money it made, but i'm not a weirdo. a good film is a good film, and the best are often under valued. ps - a nice little prequel that should have made the final cut. and yet they could have trimmed a bit of other stuff down. felt like we got the directors cut IN THEATERS.
- speaking of in theaters...i'll be seeing this for sure. looks great. and this could be great as well. even if its direct to video.
- in retrospect, alien covenant...bit of a letdown. ah well. can't all be homeruns.
- city of violence. how violent.
- save movie madness....i have a membership there. lotta weird stuff. save it but keep it out of reach of kids and small animals.
- Freddie Mercury meets California Raisins.
- my friends did this short film - Spooky Club. expect great things from them.
- another pal who lives right near me, amazing illustrator. his beverage designs are amazing.

all current orders have shipped, so if you haven't received your orders or tracking info, drop me a note.

other news
- crazy to think sept 11th, 2001 was 16 years ago.
- music wise: fever ray / milky chance / avalances
- or the real oldies: human league / the animals
- always staggering to see Elvis, literally the year he died, still giving his all.
- one of the greatest animated shows of all time, Batman: The Animated series...a neat look behind the curtain.
- blade of the immortal. fight, fight, fight.
- sure, i'd like a bear. i actually already have one, practically.

captains log 0126: stickerpacks

edit, so i had some stickerpacks, they sold out much quicker than i anticipated. anyone with buyers remorse, please drop me a note and we can get your money back to you. also, if you ordered in two different orders, let us know and we'll refund your second shipping.

just as a fyi, our shipping process isn't automated, so we don't know if someone placed two orders or one, its only something we see when we're shipping (and sometimes not even then, which is why you might get two orders in two different shipments). so if you placed two separate orders and paid shipping twice, we don't automatically refund the second shipping, you'll have to let us know. its not an attempt to make extra money on double shipping charges, its just how our shipping works. to be clear, this only affects people who purchased something, paid, then went back and ordered again, paid again.

til then, thanks for the orders, the support, all of that good stuff. always appreciated and hopefully i don't let you down.

captains log 0125

so, all orders have shipped and should have arrived. if you haven't gotten your order...or tracking...drop me an email at info at and we'll sort you out.

up next, stickerpacks, finally. and they're actually all packed up already, ready to ship, so these will be quick turnarounds compared to the last sale. fingers crossed. i'll send out an email, if you're on my mailing list you'll get the note. if you're not into stickers, no worries, but i'm pretty pleased with em. tuesday i believe. round noon, pdx time. plenty to go around.

til then, in these tumultuous times... better people than me have said it best
- ted leo / rappaport's testament
- bad religion / them and us
- pennywise / competition
- donnis iris - love is like a rock
- the dickies - give it back

poster orders are finally shipping, apologies on the long delay. using a new shipping program called...Shipworks? hopefully it works out, makes things a bit easier on sarah, paypal's multiorder shipping leaves something to be desired.

other than that, nothing much going on, stickerpacks on the way, i'll send out an email beforehand. til then...
- qt movie connections
- some shorts: the privates / zerogon / broken
- death of stalin. communist humor.
- some music videos i just like watching every couple years. like panda bear. or this new one 'in cold blood' is pretty cool. or pearl jams oldie, i remember being amazed when it came out.
- baby driver, seen it twice and it holds up nicely.

captains log 0123

well shoot, august already. time flies. sooo, long story short, i had more orders than i expected of older prints in the last sale, and it made me feel....well it felt weird to send out just older prints by themselves. so i thought it'd be cool to get a new print printed to include with those orders, so that's been kinda the holdup. it finishes printing this week and hopefully its worth waiting for. if you'd prefer to just skip the free print stuff and get just what you ordered, drop me a note and we'll get that sent off. but if you can wait a bit longer, we'll be sending these out shortly. and then, the sticker pack sale. i can hear everybody chanting now, 'we hate stickers.' its too late, they're coming.

so, that's all the news thats fit to print, this is a family publication after all. PG-13, if you get my meaning. wink wink. and on that note....
- look at these elephants. ain't that nuts?
- type stuff. movie type stuff. these type of articles give the impression i'm a smart designer. smoke and mirrors, i assure you.
- speaking of trigger. seafret. delta heavy. the avalanches.
- 3d printing. what will they think of next? electric cars? deodorant?
- the foreigner. starring Sir Jack Chan. a return to form? no. but still? hmm.
- and lastly (and most importantly) - monkeys in film. so many lost opportunities.

captains log 0122 - poster sale

thanks again for the orders, always appreciated, humbled by all you kind hearted people out there.

if you're on my mailing list, expect another one in august (hopefully) regarding sticker packs. til then, these will start shipping. also, i might be the last person on earth to see this video, but it made me smile.
just a heads up that i have a poster sale going (read how to purchase here) - it includes a new series of artprints and the poster i did for ween @ red rocks.

i also dug up some older band prints / art prints that i realized i didn't need to hold onto so many copies of, so i put those up for sale as well, if you're on the lookout for any older prints that aren't movie related.

captains log 0121

heyo, i guess this week we'll have a poster sale, sadly no stickerpacks at the moment. but some art prints and ween posters and stuff like that. if you're on my mailing list you're get a note when the sale is, or i'll post it here. or i guess i can blow the dust off my twitter account and post it there as well. technology, does the work of ten men, and a boy.

til then, hope everyone has a good week.
- light people face.
- wanderers
- blades of glory, continues to be a modern classic
- what happened to monday. bit of a children of men vibe.
- mortal kombat, behind the scenes. get over here.
- no lie, i was in a kids choir back in the day, and we learned this song. and i still find myself singing it. brains are weird.

captains log 0120

EDIT: so...unforeseen printing weirdness happened with my stickers. they are not up to my level of nitpicky-ness, so i can't really sell em. some are good, some not good.  so...that means the sale will be pushed back, apologies. bummed, really bummed. will update those of you interested when i get this sorted out, apologies.

- the great alex toth
- the great elo
- the great drawing perspective trick
- saw I AM A HERO. it was pretty great.
- the great david fincher.
- the great edgar wright and tarantino
- the goon suit. fill it with grape soda and go to the movies. great.

saw baby driver and really enjoyed it, definitely went a few places i was not expecting, it was basically edgar wrights 'death proof.' basically.

captains log 0118

hey thanks to all that came out for the show, it seemed both small and fun-filled at the same time, moved at a brisk pace and felt like we got some stuff signed, so that's good. special thanks to those that made the long journeys from out of state and to other long-time friends who i was like 'what are you doing here?' it was heart-worming. i mean warming. plus years ago when we were dating sarah asked if i was going bald and i was like 'no i just have thin hair' and so far, the pact holds. SARAH.  so, yeah, thanks again, always a humbling experience to be among friends.

til next time
- highlander poster - effective use of black and white photocopy machine
- blacksmithing with barry pepper
- okja / yeah i'm interested
- john williams speech / award / thing
- tarantino type credits
- pretty moving article about foster care. man's a legend.
- apparently vans lets you upload your own graphic now for shoes. i'm testing the quality, but could be preeeeeeetty neat.

ps - i donated some prints to be sold for a fundraiser thing, but i don't have the link. if someone has it, lemme know.

greetings. if you're in the portland area this saturday, and can navigate the hate crimes and protests, i'm part of a show at poboy art's gallery with marq spusta. its not a huge retrospective of my life's work, nor will i have some new masterpieces to unveil. its just going to be me, sitting there (probably standing), trying to hold my breath in for 2 or 3 hours to appear slimmer.  if you have anything you need signed, i will be happy to do so. also, if you are making the trek and are in search of something random that i've done in the past....drop me a note and i'll have sarah see if i have it and can bring it with. probably not movie posters, but like shirts / dvds / stickers / handbills.

edit: heres a pic of my pieces in the show.

juts a heads up, i'll probably be at the gallery from like 5ish to like 8ish? or less, if there's no a lot of people.

til then, let this calm you down -
- car seat headrest / fill in the blank
- wall of voodoo / mexican radio
- robert gordon / someday, somehow
- ink in motion
- Madame Tutli-Putli / short film
- rest in piece, sir roger moore

nothing new really to report, some artprints and posters and whatnot on the horizon, plus some sticker packs, which i personally enjoy. so if you're on my mailing list, your email will ping when those are around.

also, if you haven't seen alien: faceburster, i enjoyed it. not quite the impact prometheus had on me, but still a fun time. and sets up a future universe that is dark and foreboding.

other links - too many, too many.
- james rheem davis sent me this shirt that he saw in his travels abroad, in venice. funny.
- also, neat to see this palmer patch sewn on, as well as this pros and cons frameup. interesting sidenote, i was watching In Like Flint and realized Palmer's jacket patch is a reference to that film, which i did not know. z for Z.O.W.I.E.
- also, eric houtman has been updating me over the years and has finally completed getting his thing handbills signed by everyone that's still out there signing, pretty awesome.

other than that, just some links i enjoyed -
- interesting bladerunner article on deckard / gaff. plus an article on the films type.
- some neat alien covenant stuff - behind the scenes / hbo first look
- jeff soto has a show up in austin, i meant to link this last week, typically late me.
- alien 3 script story, plus a star trek / daft punk mashup that really works.
- interview with me about my alien soundtrack packaging.

captains log 0115

it looks like the soundtrack i worked on for alien is coming out, you can preorder it on mondo's site for the next....lotta days, once it goes up for sale. i believe each soundtrack comes with a screenprinted handbill as well. i won't have any record copies for sale, though i might get some handbills down the road. anywho, up to you, should be a cool set, four records inside a nice little boxset thing.

plus, in honor of aliens, some alien related links.
- gigers alien doc, thanks for the heads up jp
- prometheus explained...or someones opinion
- prometheus engineers translation
- r.scotts storyboards.
- operation alien, twas not meant to be, cherie.

captains log 0114

so, prints are shipping in the next couple days, by early next week all orders will have gone out. we appreciate your patience.

til then, hope this april is treating you well. some pretty epic movie trailers coming out.
- speaking of baby driver, that radar love song is pretty rad.
- and thor-wise, some pretty nifty comic connections.
- plus another movie that flew under my radar. love.
- and many lives must it take?
- ol arnie. for awhile there, he was truly the destroyer.

captains log 0113: Captain America: Civil War poster sale

edit 3: round 2 emails have gone out, i assume that will wrap it up. appreciate all that participated, warms my shriveled heart.

edit 2: so, round one emails have gone out. but round 2 emails will go out later tonight after 6PM, so theres always a chance. thanks for taking the time to enter.

edit 1: so, emails are going out. sometimes people ask how it works, the lottery. basically, everyone emails their info to an email account set up for this purpose. sarah goes thru and randomly selects x amount of entries per page. like dis. we have about 375 prints to sell. we have more than 375 people expressing interest. we randomly pick people. pretty easy. after the sale is over, the inbox is completely emptied of all entries.

people worry about being disqualified. the only time we've disqualified anyone, we email them first. we don't check for multiple entries when picking people's email. we only check once they've purchased the print. then sarah goes thru and sees if that shipping address lines up with the address they entered. that's it, super easy. the people that get refunded always are contacted and asked why they entered twice, or weren't picked etc. so don't worry about being silently disqualified over a typing error, its always people that know why they were ineligible.

easy enough. and a bit of work for sarah - so go easy on her. all this attention is stressful.


looks like we're selling our copies of our poster for Civil War. go here to read more about how to enter, details and whatnot. if you have any questions, fire em off to me. good luck to all.

i'll be posting updates as they happen, so feel free to check back here if you're like 'has the first round of people been picked yet' or 'is the sale started' etc.

captains log 0112

welp, another month without a post from me, i'm slackin. i have my Captain America: Civil War posters in hand, so i assume the sale will be upcoming. sarah will figure out what works best. it'll be a lottery, free to enter as always.

also, i'm in a poster show with Marq Spusta in portland, oregon, sometime this spring? i think? just as a heads up, it'll just be a show of pieces i've done from the past few years, not movie posters, mostly music posters, some art type prints.

til then -
- fellow poster artist Dave Hunter has some medical bills going on, a good guy to support.
- some pretty interesting alien covenant trailers coming out. pretty stoked. can they recapture the magic? also looking forward to baby driver.
-probably been 7 or 8 years since i re-listened toThe Smiths. , but they're still awesome.
- a classic moment from watchmen. or rogue one. or mike mignola / rob liefeld.

lastly, deeply bummed about bernie wrightsons passing, as well as bill paxton. both giants in their fields. they will be missed.
