I’m really happy to announce that “Joe Strummer, London 1975” has won Art of the Week on Expressobeans. Thanks to all my supporters!
Opening reception will be February 2nd 2012 in Eugene Oregon at Blunt Graffix, a 2000 sq. ft. artist studio. Doors open at 6pm and the show runs through February 24th. The art will then move to THE WAVE Art Gallery, located in the historic Whitaker district, and remain until late March.
I designed the cover for this working with photographer Michael Zagaris, and I’m happy to announce that it is available on January 25, 2011. I did the poster and went to Los Angeles to see the show back in 2007. What a great show! Here’s a trailer from the DVD:
