Does anyone else listen to The Kills? If not, check em out! Their new album inspired this poster. Background story is that the two musicians met in a hotel, when Alison Mosshart heard Jamie Hince playing guitar in the room above her. They decided to form a rock and roll baby together and went off to happily ever after blast our ears with amazing music. Enjoy:)
My latest piece. Im submitting it to Illest, so fingers crossed, but it doesn't matter it was still lots of fun to make. Started off a a self portrait, but I think it kinda morphed into something else. Anyways hope you like!

A halloween poster piece entitled Cry Baby Bridge for the West Bottoms district of Kansas City. Another piece completed at the Academy. It was based on an urban myth about a woman who is pregnant and not married. She fears her families disapproval so she throws herself and her baby off of a bridge. Tragic. So the legend goes, that if you go to the bridge and sit and wait, you will hear a baby crying from underneath it. OoOoOOOOooo
p.s. the shadows of the telephone poles on the building are also symbols for crosses, marking the grave site of the mother and child. Enjoy:)
