Around here we never refer to this guy simply as Tucker. It’s always “Tucker Nichols.” It has a certain rhythm to it. He would not disclose the meaning of this piece, but I have a feeling it has something to do with this. It is, in fact, actual ad copy. Fluorescent ink on chipboard.

Steven Harrington

I printed these a long time ago, but Steven just put them online. Poke around his site–he consistently churns out great stuff.

Beautiful Decay

This made me laugh. The Onion nails it again. I even shot the stupid photo to go with it.

Joe Brook

Joe Brook recently had his very own shoe released by es. What photography has to do with shoes I’m not really sure, but they made a zine and a book to go with the whole deal, filled with images from his travels across planet earth. Published and designed in conjunction with TWB. Good stuff.

Morning Breath

I must be doing something right–I just got this gem in the mail. Forty-eight pages of graphics culled from years of art and design projects from the two-headed beast known as Morning Breath. Rough, lurid and generally inappropriate–just the way you like it.

Mike Giant

I printed these for Mike Giant a while ago and if you skate and are of this era, you probably want one. I stared at it for days. Total time warp. I don’t see them on either site but if you inquire here or through Mike’s site I bet they still have some.

Pulled – Mike Perry

Saw this at the bookstore yesterday. Solid collection of work, some of which I printed for people in years past. Lots of inspiring design. Well worth the $35 if you are a lover of squeegees.

NY Times

The New York Times design blog posted a write-up of “Getting Upper” which opened last weekend at PMCA. If you’re in the area check it out. The other shows are worth seeing too. I will have this work for sale when the show comes down in September.

Amy Ellingson

This is one print from a suite of six I did in collaboration with Gallery 16 / Urban Digital Color. They made digital prints from Amy’s paintings and I screen printed a single color “mask” on top. The results were beautiful and far exceeded anyone’s expectations. The screen printed ink was transparent enough to let the under-painting show through creating a unique digital/screen print hybrid.

Chronicle Books

Chronicle is looking for design fellows. I’ve done work for them for years and they are a solid group of people. This looks like a great opportunity for any aspiring designer.

Mark Giglio

Mark and I were trying to decide what color ink to use. I suggested fluorescent pink because “the celebratory feel of the pink is a nice juxtaposition to the morbidity of the skull.” Then we cracked up. That’s some silly shit. I’ll have these up for sale soon. And hopefully some better pictures. Cameras can’t capture fluorescent color. Trust me–it’s bright.

Noise Pop

Another one from Jason for this year’s Noise Pop Festival. My cat has five claws on each paw but who ever heard of a ten string guitar? Nine strings?

Noise Pop

Noise Pop is over but you can still get these posters from Jason.

Getting Upper

I’m in the midst of completing this project (scroll down). Here’s a short blurb from the museum’s web site: Curator Amos Klausner charged twenty-six designers with each re-imagining a letter from the alphabet, using the illegibility and deconstructive nature of graffiti as their starting point. Each of the 26 letters has been published as a limited edition run of 100 silk-screened posters and will be available for sale at the museum store and online.
