01. AWAKE IN THE SOUTHERN SKIES: Inspired by all things metal – from doom to black and death to stoner. As much as I love The National, Neko Case, Band of Horses and wholesome lifestyle – metal, and all its decadence, will always be a big part of my life.

02. THE GLARE THAT OBSCURES: The title is inspired by this quote by James Thurber: "There are two kinds of light - the glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures," while the art features a photograph I took recently at an abandoned ice factory.

03. LIKE A MURDERING SUN: Featuring a detail from one of Gustav Doré's magnificent works for Dante's The Divine Comedy, this piece takes a cleaner, brighter and more colorful path than the other recent works. I [heart] white space.

Do yourself a favor and take five minutes to enjoy this video on a modern-day letterpress shop. It's a fascinating view into the world of typography and techniques that are the same in this shop today as they were 600 years ago. Needless to say, Johannes Gutenberg would be proud.
