The Red Eyes CD Launched!

I recently designed the album cover for Melbourne dub reggae giants, The Red Eyes.
They launched their album on Friday night at the Corner Hotel, and it was great seeing their fans walking around clutching the CD. (Yes, there are people that still buy CDs!)

Most of my design work has been web based, so every time I see my design on a real physical object out there in the "real world" it's still so exciting.

If you haven't heard it, the album is awesome. Big ups to King Charlie on the amazing mix and sweet delay dubby goodness.


bear aware

My entry for this week's illustration friday - fearless.

I find the concept of "bear aware" really funny, coming from a country that is unfortunately devoid of bears.

Despite carefully studying the "bear aware" guide in our hotel room in Yosemite National Park, my newly acquired knowledge disappeared when faced with a real live bear.
Yes - a bear. Looking right at me. And only about 3 metres away. (!!!)

What did I do? I turned around and said "Hey Matt, come here! There's a bear!"
