Last Waltz Fashion

December 6, 2011 in fashion, music, Portland Oregon

I took some photos at a tribute concert called The Next Waltz at the Alberta Rose Theater in Portland, Oregon last week where my man Dan Haley sang This Wheel’s on Fire (Bob Dylan/Rick Danko). The cool thing about the show was that they played EVERY SONG from that concert, not just what you see on The Last Waltz Scorsese movie ~ which if you haven’t seen, you should immediately!

So many that night dressed like the original performers; I think we were all scouring Good Will stores trying searching for 1976 duds. After a lot of internetting and geeking out on the 70′s vibe, I took a bunch of photos. And I’m blown away by the similarities! Here’s my own little visual tribute to The Last Waltz, which includes the poster I made of my last show in Vermont.

iPhone photography

April 4, 2010 in photography, sculpture

i’ve been completely obsessed with the various apps available for making iPhone photos look all retro and psychedelic.  my favorites are Hipstamatic, Lo-Mob, and Tilt-Shift-Gen.

these are pictures i took to exhibit at a “phone-tography” show for Geek Week at Langdon Street Cafe in Montpelier, Vermont.

i also made a 12:1 scale iPhone out of foam core and paper, and used the prints i made as the apps.

psychedelic retro vintage rock posters

July 8, 2009 in design, music

i will always love retro psychedelic rock and movie posters.

but Tadanori Yokoo took it to a whole nutha level:

Movie poster: "The Trip" with Peter Fonda

Movie poster: "The Trip" with Peter Fonda, 1968

i mean, how crazy are these?  i love the how the registration is deliberately off, like in those turn-of-the-century offset screen prints or the WPA propaganda posters from the 30′s and 40′s.

"The Trip"

"The Trip", 1968

[and is it just me or does the woman in this poster totally look like Marie-Louise Parker?]

"Cochin Moon", 1978

"Cochin Moon", 1978

pretty sure they were done without Adobe Illustrator.  this gives me hope.

spirograph and shrinky-dink art

June 25, 2009 in craft, drawing

remember these?  i loved mine so much as a kid…though i also cursed its name as the circles skipped around or pens ran out, ruining the perfect designs…cursed precision!

well i got another one and tried it again after all these years.

then i got to wondering what else i could spiro on and used some shrinky-dink plastic…
