// United Notions 001 & 002

I am proud to announce my contribution to the clothing company, Mozaiks. My line of t-shirts is called United Notions.

United Notions brings into view an instantaneous and interconnected awareness. As an eclipse crawls across the face, we dance beneath a vastness! Through wires, and between skies, it will be known: this time is ours.


When all is said and done, the auto industry will have a lot of old junk to take care of.


While our economy is in a state of distress, those up top are doing the best the best they can to avoid the repercussions of their actions.

Printed with high quality ink, on American Apparel shirts!

// Sam Gas Can - Dog Dance

My Artwork for Sam Gas Can's "Dog Dance"

Behold Sam Gas Can in all his glory! Massachusetts-based genre-melting musician, sound/comic artist extraordinaire. This cassette tape sounds like a wonderful, murky journey through the forest. The album artwork says it all. Out now on Digitalis ltd.

ltd#78: sam gas candog dance” c22

sam gas can is one to leave you wondering endlessly and wandering aimlessly. it all starts with a low-key dance party for your favorite haunted asylum. manic voices and near-tribal beats plummet like a meteor through the clouds. you walk into this mental ward with no fucken clue how you got there. luckily there’s clarity on the horizon in the form of uber-melodic synth passages that will guide you like a drunken sailor back to the shore. the morning brings pump organ catharsis that’s bathed in warm white light. hypnotic vocals fill the air while the melodies grind along underneath. it’s blindingly emotive – you can’t help but be drawn in by the familiar comforts of each note that gently takes you home. beautiful stuff from one of the most underappreciated artists in massachussetts.

edition of 75, pro-dubbed.
