For All You ‘KISS’ Fans Out There…

June 18, 2008 on 10:16 am | By | In News, Wayback Machine | 6 Comments

Years ago I did the cover for Kiss’ album “Rock and Roll Over”. When I did it, I styled it after another piece I had done—a cover for the Japanese graphics magazine IDEA. Over the years this piece has gotten more notoriety (founded or unfounded) than almost any other piece of art I’ve done. I’ve done many interviews about my experience doing this cover. This short interview was done for Rockpages Web Magazine, out of Greece, which is part of their year-long special on this rock group. Another more recent interview was done for “Tokyo Five” and can be seen HERE.

“Rising Star” at MyFonts (June Edition)

A month ago Metroscript was featured in the MyFonts monthly newsletter “Rising Stars” which highlights the bestsellers among their newer fonts. To our surprise Metroscript was featured again in the just released June edition of “Rising Stars“—but in addition they are now highlighting in the newslettter my three other font familes: my take on Bank Gothic (with lowercase characters), PowerStation and Orion. Thank you MyFonts!

What I Do (#3 of 3)

Trying to cite a few sample pieces that are representative of what I do is not that easy. Although there are many common threads running through my work, much of it has ranged all across the board. Many people say they can always recognize it by “my style”, but it’s not as easy as picking out the work of many illustrators who have a style that’s clearly definable. If I had to pick out several pieces that are representative of what I do, I might select the logo I designed for the NY Knicks, one of my covers for Time Magazine, the cover I did for the Squirrel Nut Zippers CD “Bedlam Ballroom” and the treatment I created for the New York Times of the Tribeca Film Festival. These pieces are all quite different in nature, yet tied together by what I believe to be my personal graphic vision.
