From the early days with Syd Barrett to the Roger Waterless Division Bell, Pink Floyd laid down an impressive body of sound images that few bands can ever hope to rival. There’s even allot of great solo work to love. The most known symbol for Pink Floyd is the Dark Side of the Moon cover […]
Being a big Led Zeppelin fan, I had to make some sort of Zeppelin shirt. But what was I to do? Unlike a band like the Grateful Dead, who had a plethora of iconography to choose from, Led Zeppelin had limited visual symbolism. The two items I settled on as instantly recognizable imagery, Led Zeppelin […]
I’ve done many batik requests, that ultimately were one off pieces. This Robert Johnson image came from an vinyl album cover that a friend handed to me and said, I want you to put that on a shirt for me. I think he was exceeding pleased with this one.

This is an original Hawkwind design, based on the kind of iconography that this kick ass psychedelic band is associated with. Hawkwind is another favorite for studio music. When I’m doing free form sketching there are few bands that can deliver better inspiration.
This image combines the double-headed-hawk as a burning bird […]
I first saw the Grateful Dead in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania on July 6th, 1987. At the time I really didn’t know their music very well. A bunch of my friends had gone to see them in Philadelphia PA earlier that year and I was informed I was absolutely going to see them the next time they […]
