CLIENT: Louis Black Productions
MENIUM: Print

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This was one of my favorite poster designs ever and in large part that had to do with the sweet intersection of film, design and Texas dive bars.  Louis Black Productions trusted me with this poster for the restoration of this much-acclaimed, almost lost film which follows a young Sonny Carl Davis as Cowboy and his ne'er-do-well friends on the last night in their beloved dive bar, "the Alamo." Frequently with modern films, you can easily pull high res stills from the digital footage or even better, be given photos taken on set by a photographer during production to use…

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: I was honored to be asked to design the poster for the documentary about Austin's own Richard Linklater that just made its world premiere at Sundance.  For me, it was deeply personal in that I feel so grateful to this particular director in that had he not decided to stay here in those early days of his success, the film industry and community as it is today would absolutely not exist.  The club he and his friends started that crewed Slacker started the Austin Film Society and began to blow on the little umber of flame that was Texas film…

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Doug Sahm is a Texas legend.  As influential, if not as famous, as Willie Nelson, Doug remains beloved by those who knew him and knew his music.  I was not really one of those people initially.  I knew of the Texas Tornados, but didn't know how important he was to the history of not just Texas music, but music in general, until I was asked to art direct this excellent documentary about his life and legend by Arts+Labor. I also got to create the poster for our premiere at SxSW.  Doug passed away in the late '90s, but I wanted…
