My Nick Cave Deck is available officially through Fast Times Skate Company in Melbourne.
From Fast Times: “True legend of Australian music, Nick Cave has teamed up with Fast Times to produce an exciting and rad collection! After discussing lyrics and a theme, It was agreed Nature Boy best suited the Melbourne Skate Scene and vibe of Fast Times. The Lyrics are taken from ‘Nature Boy’ A track from’s Nick’s ‘Abattoir Blues’ Album which also is featured in the accompanying Fast Times Skate clip.”
“Chuck Sperry is the artist behind this project and has done many of Nick Cave’s tour posters. Hailing from San Francisco, he has worked alongside many other music greats to create some truly unique and iconic pieces of art. The board features a full wrap graphic that uses a metallic glitter (inspired by old school motorbike helmets) to highlight the intricate detail of Chuck’s artwork. It runs throughout the board and gives the board a unique texture and feel. It also features lyrics chosen by ourselves and Nick to reflect the theme of the graphic.”
“We are stoked to have worked with Chuck on this limited edition collection!” — Fast Times
Nick Cave wrote me an email last summer, starting a discussion about making art for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds upcoming tour in 2014. I’ll be creating a really special poster offering throughout the beginning of 2014 for Nick Cave and the Bad Seed’s 2014 North American Tour; it is available with a VIP ticket purchase in all major North American cities he will visit. I am linking the Warfield in San Francisco, HERE. However, this offer is available throughout the tour. Read more about the tour from Nick Cave’s press conference recently HERE.
Last June, Nick mentioned that he has always loved my design for his Grinderman concert at the Warfield from 2010, and here we are offering my design as a t-shirt, on Nick Cave’s official website.
Grinderman rocked it tonight! Nick Cave was so good. The band has an undefinable sound. The only word to use to describe it is: excellent. I was led into the dressing room to show the poster to Nick Cave, and his reaction was, “Wow! That’s beautiful.” Told Cave the image was based on “Heathen Child” and showed him her Eye of Horus make-up, and he cracked a smile and said, “Right on.” Great night!
I printed this with Eye-Fry deluxe, hitting the red two times to make it extra rich. The background metallic is a beautiful blend from blue-silver to green-silver.
