This is my re-imagining of Jean Baptiste DuSable's home built on the site of what would become Chicago in the 1780's , leaving in 1800. A swampy place, Chicago was named after the native american word for "Stinking Onion", a term which could be applied toward our modern day politics here in the Windy City.
The print is 18 x 24 inches and is in two different signed and numbered editions; one with silver and blue metallic inks on white stock, and one with metallic Gold and Copper inks on Manila stock.

Glen Hansard at Bonnaroo Music Festival 2013. 3 colors , 18 x 24 inches. Edition of 150.
I wanted to pay homage to Glen's music by depicting a landscape that paid tribute to the emotional quality of his solo lp. It seemed fitting to depict a very expressionistic, painterly version of the mountains of Tennessee and Kentucky, since I've been driving though them the last few years to make my way down to Bonnaroo. Pretty simple idea and I think it worked well in this case. The trick with landscape is to understand the power of the emotion you are trying to depict and make sure it fits the music .
Swans official poster for their appearance @ Bonnaroo Festival. 3 colors, 18 x 24 inches, edition of 150.
The idea for the image came from stumbling across a copy of a self published art anthology zine I put out 20 years ago called "Chop Fold and Grind" The image was similar in composition, with an isolated dog-like creature in a clearing with tall trees behind it. I always thought the image could look way better and when I found this the other week, I instantly felt that a new version of this idea would fit with Swans music- brooding, dark, laden with emotion and tension, yet still clinging to hope. That's what I felt when I listened to "The Seer" for the first time, I mean, what an incredible record! After that , it all just fell into place with drawing the image out, it went very smoothly.
