Here’s the poster you’ll see around the country this Spring & Summer as JKutchma & the Five Fifths tour in support of Sundown, USA. One color, 11×17.
Diving right in: my Hopscotch prints this year were EXTREMELY popular. As in, I sold almost all of them during the three days of the festival, back in September. Since then, I’ve been trying to decide what to do with the last two (2) that I have. I thought about different packaging options, contests, and all kinds of other dumb shit. In the end, I’ve decided to auction them. They’re up on eBay right now, for five days, high bid wins. Nothing fancy, nothing special. Now, obviously what I wanted most is for everyone who wanted one to get a print. I hate that that can’t be the way. Limited editions, and such. And I also recognize that putting things up for bids can artificially drive up their price. Another drag. So I’ve decided to alleviate some of this guilt, and perhaps further entice you, the potential buyer, through altruism. I will donate a full fifty percent (50%) of the final sale price of each of these two prints to a deserving cause. One print’s proceeds will benefit TROSA, an exceptional recovery program based here in Durham that does truly inspiring work with addicts in recovery. The other print will help me make a donation to the ACLU of North Carolina, who need all the help they can get to continue to fight as the state unfortunately seems to be heading in the wrong direction on a number of social issues, from Voter ID to the truly horrendous Amendment 1.
So that’s it. If you loved Hopscotch 2012 as much as I did, and if you dug this print (many thanks, by the way, to all who have offered such kind words), and if you need a gift for a loved one, and lastly if you’d like to help me make a small donation to a worthy cause, then happy bidding. All my best to you and yours this holiday season.

Hello, and happy holidays to all. A few notes for the season. First, Maggie and I have recently moved, so print production is going to be slowed through the end of the year as I set up a new studio space at my new house. It’s exciting, and a real chance to expand my facilities. But it’s gonna take a little while. So if you contact me with a commission for a print project this month and I decline, just know that it’s not for lack of want, but for inability to quickly and efficiently turn it around. I’ll be back cranking stuff out at (hopefully) an even higher clip than before come 2013.
Second, and more important: from RIGHT NOW through the end of the day Dec 18, I’m having a print sale. Stop by the store, pick out some gifts, and shop your way to BIG BIG SAVINGS. Just enter the code “HOLIDAZE” at checkout, and receive 20% off your entire order. How can you lose?
And last, I’ve received a lot of questions as to the whereabouts and availability of my remaining Hopscotch 2012 prints. There are only a couple left. I’m planning something special for these. They’ll be available soon, in a very limited and special package. KEEP TUNED.
There you go. Merry Christmas, shitter was full.
What’s up guys? Here’s a print for tonight (10.14) at Cat’s Cradle: The Hold Steady, with Natural Child & your dear friends and humble narrators Spider Bags. We are thrilled to be playing this show. Gonna be a blast. 2 colors, 12.5×19. The image comes from the cover of Jack Kerouac’s Book of Dreams. Maggie picked that up for me at a library book sale over a year ago, and the first thought I had was, “I can’t wait for the right show to do a poster homage to that cover.” Here it is. See you tonight. We’ll walk around and drink some more.
