let them hate, provided that they fear
My friend Ian runs a small label in Ohio called Messy Life Records. They've only got a handful of releases under their belt, but they're doing well, and it's not just punk rock; they've worked with some interested electronic acts, as well as some pretty extreme powerviolence-type bands. So that's cool.

So, Messy Life is doing a free, downloadable compilation for the summer, and Ian, being a fan of my stuff, asked if I would do the cover art for him. I said sure, and quickly cranked this out. The idea was his, so that made it easy to get done before leaving for San Francisco tomorrow.

There are some things that should be fixed- most notably, the hatching on the bear going outside the lines- but in general I like how this came out. Ian was stoked on it, too.

I really would like to get back into color stuff. I have some ideas for pieces similar to this that I'd like to do in a different style. Time to bust out the tablet, I guess.

Anyway, the comp drops on June 21st. It should be really cool, so far confirmed bands include Mixtapes, Shinsplints, Ascetic Parade, Signals Midwest, the Haverchucks, and Blithe Field.
