"Four Cool Prints That Commemorate a Slice of 1980s DC," October 11, 2021
Maya Pottiger profiled the print collaboration I did with noted Washington DC photographer, Michael Horsley. Horsley's photos of our Nation's Capital back in the seedy 1980s are a stark counterpoint to the "greed is good" mentality of the Reagan Years. But amidst the crumble and decay that lay at the very foot of the Capitol Dome, there was beauty and life in DC. This print series pays homage to some of the totems of the City That Was.
Jim Boticelli's wildly popular Instagram page, Dirty Old Boston, pays tribute to a bygone Beantown that many of us still pine away for. He also writes a column for BostonMan Magazine of the same name. Thankfully, Jim is a fan of the rock venues in my prints and penned this very gracious guide that accompanies quite a few of my Boston-based pieces. Also, he's funny as hell... check it out.
Winemaker and proprietor of Oceano Wines in San Luis Obispo, CA, Rachel Martin, took me out of my comfort zone with this live video interview about our shared experiences in the DC club scene and the art that both of us create. I was fortunate enough to design a promotional poster for the winery and hope to continue to keep working with this wonderful vineyard!
DJ Chris Atwood spent a lot of time in and around Boston in his college days and beyond. Many of my Boston venue prints struck a chord with him so he magnanimously invited me to be interviewed live on-air to talk about some of our favorite haunts. His radio show is a tonic for those of us who still appreciate classic alternative radio programming!
