Loquat: We Could Be Arsonists

[slideshow]

My design for Loquat’s new album release. We Could Be Arsonists was co-produced by the Rondo Brothers (Foster the People, Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modeling School); mixed by a diverse crew that includes Dave Pensado (Mary J Blige, Beyoncé), Count (DJ Shadow), Glenn Rosenstein (Madonna, Talking Heads), and Ben Ellman (Galactic); and mastered by Dave Cooley (M83, Silversun Pickups).

The album has released internationally on Nacional records!

Listen to the album FREE until April 30th!!

Hollis Brown Thornton

HB Thornton creates these kitschy image transfer art from old photographs and markers.  He sells these prints from his site http://www.hollisbrownthornton.com.

His art themes upon memory and perception.  Going through his site I can’t help but think of grade school type illustrations with heavy marker use.  Remember those big fat smelly markers they use to give us in school to color.  The ones we used to sniff and pretend it actually smells like certain fruits?  I digress.

One more great thing about Hollis’s site is that he actually teaches you how he creates these transfers!  http://www.hollisbrownthornton.com/information/transfer.htm

Isn’t it great when you learn something new and useful from an artist?!
