Probably won’t ever top this for the largest thing I’ve designed. Advert for Bright Eyes’ sold out seven night run at Town Hall in NYC. A few of us took a trip out there to check out a couple of shows. Lou Reed was one night, and Gillian Welch/David Rawlings was the next. Gillian and David fucking killed it, of course. Lou Reed was kind of weird, but I never really got him (sorry). CJ is a big Velvet Underground fan, and he was noticeably less moribund than usual when he got to see Lou play. I never knew how these huge murals were made, and was surprised to see guys up there on scaffolds hand painting this. I was impressed and appreciative, it was a unique experience to see. We got to hang out with Kaite Murphy, who lives in NYC and works in the fashion industry. She did the lino cuts and letter press for “Lifted, or the Story is in the Soil”, and a couple of the best Bright Eyes t-shirts (snake and bats).
