This year our Star Wars Modern poster series was recognized for excellence by both the One Show and Communication Arts. In May we were awarded the coveted One Show Pencil at the annual ceremony in New York City. A One Show Pencil is the highest honor in the field of advertising and design. This year there were over 20,000 entries from 65 different countries, so we were beyond thrilled to receive the award. The project was also selected for the Communication Arts Design Annual 57 which is the most exclusive major design competition in the world. Out of 4,228 entries only 161 projects were chosen for reproduction in the publication, which boasts the largest international circulation of any trade journal on visual communication. We are honored to be included in this year’s annual.
Limited edition posters are available here.

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!
