(slow country music) - I think the reason I got into design in the beginning was I really enjoyed drawing. I just enjoyed that process of creating. Making posters was a way for me to kind of stay connected with the music scene. When you go to a concert and maybe you pick up this poster and you look at it and you touch the ink, and you think, oh wow, this is different.
How did they make this? Who made this? This is a poster I'm working on for Jeff Tweety. I've done a lot of work for Wilco over the years. Though I start with Vector art in this case, as I'm cutting, I'm making design decisions. So, maybe I'll just cut the little feet off. I like the idea of I'm still learning every single day, and I make mistakes. And that's what it's all about. It's still exciting what I do.
I want to make something every day if I can, just create. And I just feel like if you're passionate about it, and you keep doing it, eventually someone's gonna take notice.
