Amos Showtime

Earlier this year I was asked to participate in the Amos Showtime project. Amos is a German musician/generally fascinating human being who is releasing a record this August. He and his team contacted 400+ international artists, sent them blank record sleeves, and asked them to design unique artwork inspired by the album. I submitted the following, being inspired largely by Amos' awesome hair:

Rest assured, that is how "Appartment" is meant to be spelled. I checked at least 12 times.

The artwork will be shown in galleries throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland combined with the Amos concert tour in September. The work will be available to view and purchase- with Amos' record inside, of course- in an online gallery as well. I will update the blog with specific details as I get more information on dates. You can check out the Showtime blog at www.amos-showtime.com to see other submissions or go to Amos' facebook page to hear some of his rockin' jams. I recommend watching Amos' City Kill video if you enjoy gratuitous violence and standing on hoods of moving cars. I know I do.

In other news, I have officially moved to Chicago. So far I have no internet and no kitchen table, but other than getting shoved for walking too slow in the "L" station a few times, it's been going well. Hooray!
