Artist Statement:
I chose to bring attention to the Estuary Environment in my print depicting the sea-dwelling, nature spirit “Oceanid” for Pangea Seed. I live in San Francisco and I am part of the Estuary Environment of the Bay Area. Estuary dwellers, whether they be marine mammal, fish or fowl – or human being – are my kind of people! Many weekends me and my girlfriend can be found roving the Northern California Coast with binoculars, spotting harbor seals and sea lions.

My dawning realization that we are all interconnected by the fragility of the environment has found me upgrading my printing methods for a low environmental impact with my new wash-out sink filtration system and ink clean-up disposal and recycling. Making these changes took some effort, some expense, and are by no means perfect, but I’m doing my best. I am blessed to share my little sunny spot in nature with incredible beings, and I feel incredibly honored to be part of Pangea Seed’s efforts to protect our precious ocean environment.

________________

It has been deeply rewarding working with Nick Cave to produce this poster for his wildly successful North American tour. Mr. Cave contacted me directly in June 2013 in regard to a t-shirt design for Grinderman based on a poster I made for him in 2010. Nick opened the email by saying he had finally framed his Grinderman at The Warfield poster and put it in his kitchen; he also mentioned that it is the only rock poster he had ever framed and put in his house. Conversation over the next few months lead to my design for Nick Cave & The Bad Seed’s North American Tour. I based my design on “The Lyre of Orpheus,” depicting Eurydice, Orpheus’ lover. Wouldn’t you know it, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds belted out this song at the end of their incredibly great concert at The Warfield!

Had a fantastic meeting with Nick after the show in sanctum sanctorum of The Warfield. Thanks go out to my bros Justin Katz and Tony Zoffman for a super warm welcome at The Warfield. And what followed was a great conversation about future projects with Mr. Cave (photos by Ben Clarke):

Founded in 1979 by Seth Tobocman and Peter Kuper, World War 3 Illustrated is a labor of love run by a collective of artists (both first-timers and established professionals) and political activists working with the unified goal of creating a home for political comics, graphics, and stirring personal stories. Their confrontational comics shine a little reality on the fantasy world of the American kleptocracy, and have inspired the developing popularity and recognition of comics as a respected art form.

This full-color retrospective exhibition is arranged thematically, including housing rights, feminism, environmental issues, religion, police brutality, globalization, and depictions of conflicts from the Middle East to the Midwest. World War 3 Illustrated isn’t about a war that may happen; it’s about the ongoing wars being waged around the world and on our very own doorsteps. World War 3 Illustrated also illuminates the war we wage on each other—and sometimes the one taking place in our own minds. World War 3 artists have been covering the topics that matter for over 30 years, and they’re just getting warmed up.

Contributors include Sue Coe, Scott Cunningham, Eric Drooker, Fly, Sandy Jimenez, Sabrina Jones, Peter Kuper, Mac McGill, Kevin Pyle, Spain Rodriguez, James Romberger, Nicole Schulman, Chuck Sperry, Art Spiegelman, Seth Tobocman, Tom Tomorrow, Susan Willmarth, and many more.

The “World War 3 Illustrated 1979 – 2014″ book is available through PM Press HERE 

Praise:

World War 3 Illustrated is the real thing. . . . As always it mixes newcomers and veterans, emphasizes content over style (but has plenty of style), keeps that content accessible and critical, and pays its printers and distributors but no one else. If it had nothing more than that kind of dedication to recommend it, it would be invaluable. But it has much, much more.“
New York Times

“Reading WW3 is both a cleansing and an enraging experience. The graphics remind us how very serious the problems and how vile the institutions that cause them really are.“
Utne Reader

“Powerful graphic art and comic strips from the engaged and enraged pens of urban artists. The subjects include poverty, war, homelessness and drugs; it’s a poke in the eye from the dark side of America, tempered by what the artists describe as their ’oppositional optimism.’“
Whole Earth Review

“This is art—not marketing—on the newsstand. It represents the sort of creativity too rarely given an outlet in comics. It’s the best and longest running alternative comics anthology around.“
Comics Journal

“The artists of World War 3 have forged a space by turns harsh and exciting, honest and rowdy, boisterous and straight-forward, always powered by the wild and unruly harmonies of love. It’s a space where hope and history rhyme, where joy and justice meet. Their voices provoke and soothe and energize. I want to hear more.“
—Bill Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground
