I’ve been a Star Wars fan my entire life. So I am beyond excited to reveal this series of Star Wars art prints I designed in collaboration with Lucasfilm! These silk screened posters are officially licensed and celebrate the original trilogy. They are available now in the shop!
All of the posters are silk screened on 100lb. French Paper and are available in two sizes: individual 18×24” prints, and smaller 8×10” sets.
Vahalla Studios did all the screen printing and they turned out amazing! We printed everything on French paper. Most of them are on Black Licorice Pop-Tone and we used gold and silver metallic inks on a few. They really look great.
You can read the full story, see a gallery of my childhood Star Wars art and buy the prints here!

I was honored to be invited to Nashville this month as a keynote speaker at AIGA Think Tank 2015 – a one-day event that brings together thought leaders from across the design, creative, and experiential industries.
While I was there I had the opportunity to visit the legendary Hatch Show Print! I cannot begin to describe how incredibly inspiring it was to tour the shop, hear the stories, and to meet the great Jim Sherraden himself – master printer and curator of Hatch. He was the most wonderful and gracious host and I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to spend some time with him.
I was lucky enough to purchase several of his amazing monoprints. I’m so excited and honored to have some of his art in my studio and in my home! We may need more walls!

The Honda Civic Tour features the biggest names in music and draws hundreds of thousands of fans. Each year the headlining band creates a custom Civic that is featured at every show and ultimately won by a lucky fan. This summer Maroon 5 will headline the tour, and we worked closely with the band to create a truly one-of-a-kind 2013 Honda Civic Si Coupe.
Here are some images from various stages of the design process. I worked closely with the band to capture their vision for the design. Then the car was custom-painted by hand.
The car is autographed by the band and will be given away to a very lucky fan at the end of the tour. You can enter to win here.
Be sure to catch Maroon 5 on the Honda Civic Tour this summer! Both the custom Civic and the motorcycle will be featured at every venue. Learn more at CivicTour.Honda.com
