stabin cabin prison blues

last week i dropped this photo off over at mark floods studio. it was the reference for a giant 6'x4' print i did last year. a lot of people know mark for his lace paintings and his funny and sometimes offensive column that ran on glasstire.com for a while. but he was also once perry webb, singer for seminal texas punk band culturcide - who were featured in the movie american hardcore. his latest musical venture, stabin cabin, has a new record ready for release and they're using my photo for the cover.


staying busy in the studio. new print. actually not done in an edition.
acrylic on wood panel, 13"x23"

i met the guys in folsom on the first/last couple of days that they picked up on a tour that the band i was doing merch for was leaving. then a year later when i merched a short tour with will to live that ended in las vegas.

this photo is from the insert of one of their cds and was taken in san antonio some time before we met..

..but i still snuck in.

since we're doing music. this is the cover for morgue city's album. spike contacted me about doing it last year and pretty much let me run with whatever i wanted to do. i did the layers on paper and he stacked them in photoshop and put their name on it. i don't have a picture of the final version with the text. i don't know why this took me so long to post.
