New Morality from Europe is doing a U.S. tour with Downpresser and Take Offense starting in late July. This will be a killer tour so catch one of their dates if it rolls through your state. Funny enough, I've done designs for all 3 bands within the past year. Don't sleep on these bands. They all shred.
I've been behind on designs but I have been doing at least one a week. Balancing work and band shirts are only slightly easier than balancing them with school. Luckily, I'm done with both and focusing more on my work for the remainder of the summer.
I have finally dove back into my website mess so that should be up within the next couple weeks. All of this will be transferred over to that so my site will be incorporated into my blog. More on that as it gets closer to being finished.

Fun at work....
While reading the headlines and newspapers at work, my boss wanted me to make a shirt based on this story so this is what I came up with at work today. If you haven't heard about Weiner and all the punchlines jokes associated with him tweeting pictures of his Weiner, open a paper and it'll all make sense. I might make a small run of these shirts as a joke.
If you're a band or a clothing line and need shirts printed, go through the shop I work at up in Queens.

Drew this shirt up for Compound. New straight edge band out of Long Island. I was at their first show and it was hands down the best first show I've ever seen. They know how to set it off. Check them out and these shirts at Long Island Fest this weekend!

Long Island snakeover
If you haven't checked out Incendiary from Long Island, you will have your chance at Long Island Fest this weekend as well as on their West Coast tour coming up in a couple weeks. New York Hardcore has a fresh wave of bands coming up right now and I'm happy to have been able to work with them. For the pound!

Old seventh dagger shirt
I re-drew up this old Seventh Dagger design design for a re-release. They're a strictly straight edge label that's putting out Ghost Ship's new record. Anyways, I took what I was given in terms of the old imagery and revamped it to my style. This looks like it should be a biker back patch.
I have some really cool projects coming up. I get to do a design for one of my favorite bands from when I was just getting into hardcore. So if you knew me back then, I'm sure you know who they are. I only have about 8 of their shirts. As my semester is ending, my list of work is growing so I won't be relaxing too hard.
