This was my final show with Lightspeed. At this point I was having more fun making the posters than singing in the band. Lightspeed went on for a few years after I left. After a while I stopped hearing about them.

I was there at the formation of Lightspeed. But I watched it quickly transform from a rhythm and blues band that played mostly originals and a few covers, to a Grateful Dead cover band. Not that I dislike The Dead, but it was way too much of a good thing. It wasn't long before I wanted out.

Lightspeed was actually a band I was in for a while. I sang lead like I did in Calico Soul but it wasn't nearly as much fun. It was cool in the beginning, but it got to be too much.

Computer generated signage created with Print Shop
I used the computer to figure out the font, colors and overall design. Then I used this image to create the 3D foam core board sign.

Here is another old band poster from the vault (2000). I was doing these for a friend of mine who was a freelance band promoter. I made posters for several shows back then. I'ts fun to look at them and think back about those times.

I was recently doing some cleaning in my studio and came across a stash of old band posters that I made during college. This one is for the band Calico Soul (1991) which I co-founded with my room-mate. This brings back a lot of fun memories for me. Just good stuff.

8.5"x11" computer generated signage created with Print Shop
Here is a graphic design project from a while ago. The colors and pattern of this sign were made to coordinate with the dinnerware collection.
You have discovered my art blog. I post my artwork here as I make it. Hang out and explore for a while.
