Switchfoot at Terminal 5 New York, NY March 29, 2014. Jon Forman gave me my first photo pass ever on April 26, 2004 at the Recher Theater in Towson, MD. I had left the show for some reason and he was outside doing an acoustic set for the people that didn’t get in that night. He stopped me and asked why I was leaving and told me to wait. He came back 5min later with a photo pass and introduced me to their manager. I haven’t stopped shooting since. I owe a lot to this band. Thank you for 16 years of great shows and 10 years of photo passes.

The Royal Concept tonight at Terminal 5 New York, NY opening for Switchfoot.

These awesome drawings were done for the issue that I shot the cover and Isolde photos for and I’m beyond stoked on how it turned out! the drawing really brought to life the stories that Dan Ozzi brought to the pages in words. So amazing to collaborate with such talented people for such a great publication.

mitchclem:

Four drawings of Chuck Ragan, drawn by me, inkwash by Nation of Amanda.These were for an article by Dan Ozzi in the newest issue of New Noise Magazine (and make more sense in the context of the article).

My art improves to an unbelievable extent by simply shrinking it down for print. I don’t know why, but it’s a fact. And so I always draw things larger in real life than they’re gonna wind up in print. 

With these above images, I went a little overboard and drew the originals WAY bigger than they were supposed to end up in the magazine (no idea why I decided to do that), and then I got the issue in the mail and the drawings were actually much, much smaller than I’d been told they would be, which means I drew the originals way way WAY WWAAAAYYYYYY bigger than I needed to. Insanity.

But I love how they turned out, especially the skateboarding one, and the article is actually very sweet. Working with the people at New Noise was super great because they were incredibly nice and actually paid me for my time without me even having to ask (you’d be surprised how many freelance art conversations end abruptly after me mentioning I charge for my work). A great experience all around, and I hope they have me back!
