Here's a flyer I did for the Wild Onion String Band. A lot of fun to paint. I love old-timey themes. They're so much fun, and traditional music has a special nostalgia attached to it. It's heart warming, is what it is.
I've been listening to Bob Dylan's version of "Can't Help Falling in Love". I've probably listened to it about 150 times in the last couple of months. I read that the album was released by the record company without Bob's permission. (The record is mostly left overs and covers) I guess they were mad that he had just signed with a new label.
But oh mama, I'm glad they did release it. Bobby is a huge Elvis fan, by the way.
Here's a sketch I did while I was out of my mind, sitting.
I read an article about how Bob Dylan has never been too cooperative with interviewers and journalists. I love the guy, and I agree with every move he makes. You'll never get me to say a bad word about him!
I made this album. It's available for free download HERE. So give it a listen. I'd like to thank Jason and Jim for all their hard work and support. This a project is made possible by Impotent Ohms Management. I hope you like it.
This is a sketch I did a while ago and just never did anything with. It's of a man I saw on the Red Line. Kim and I agreed that I had to draw him. He's probably the coolest guy to ever ride the train.
Hey, on Thursday I'll be at Wizard World in Chicago selling prints alongside my talented pals, Jake Martin and Juan Martinez.(Their links are on the right.) So come on buy...Freudian slip. See you there.
I feel like this blog has become more impersonal than I originally intended. One reason is a feeling of censorship, and not wanting potential clients or employers to be turned off by certain honesty. It sounds ridiculous now. Another is just boredom of the format, which comes and goes. So I guess you'll see slight change in this thing.
I'm working on a lot of things lately, and I'm only adding to the list daily.. Lots of lists and I use a calender now.
I have rediscovered music in a couple of ways. I'm trying to get back to a place where I used to reside. In that sense. My brother bought me the new Fleet Foxes album as a graduation gift, and that record has been motivating me more than anything else since then.
Here's something. I added a new section to my website called 'Flyers & Album Art'. Some of this art hasn't been seen by anyone but the client and I. So I hope you enjoy.
If you have a band, or whatever requires a flyer, talk to me. I love doing these things.
Speaking of my web site. Wix didn't work for smart phones before, I guess, so now they offer separate sites made for the phone. Just go to JacobSandersArt.com on your phone an I assume you'll see this.
I don't have one of these phones. so if someone could email me and tell me if it works, that'd be nice. Hope you're all enjoying your summer.
