1916: US Liberty Dime

Brother can you spare a dime? This represents the apex of artistic quality of US coinage. Since then? Quality's dropping faster than the dollar.

1971: Do You Feel Lucky?

October 8, 2020 10:03 pm Published by

"Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?

1917, Chicago: The Real National Pastime

August 26, 2020 10:08 pm Published by

When baseball was worth a damn, I was of course an American League fan. Here is a 1917 White Sox Team Logo, reimagined. Like sex, Chicago according to Nelson Algren is "a rigged ball game."

Back when music was good, we listened to this. In re-imagining this 1980 sticker from a rock station stuck on a high school binder, I smote the lame acts in the original and replaced them with gods.

The Best Job In The World, pt. 1

April 26, 2020 6:12 pm Published by

After being thrown out of high school in 1981 I worked at a place which did backstage catering for all the bands that came to play @ CapCentre in Largo, MD, in this case: Queen. These backstage passes got us everywhere in the arena, and over a year-and-a-half I got to meet Freddy Mercury & Brian May; Van Halen; The Who; Ozzy Osbourne; Richie Blackmore; and others.

Patriotism, nostalgia, graphic design and cows - what more could you want in these dark days?!

Blue Öyster Cult logo

An exploration of the BOC's soft white underbelly.... I re-imagined the Blue Öyster Cult's logo without using their symbol (but kept the umlaut.)
