Thanks for your interest. Currently available posters are listed here. I generally only receive a few copies of each poster, so when they're gone, they're gone!
I am fortunate to have enjoyed a 30-plus year career making both commercial and fine art. By day, I am a designer, illustrator and executive creative director, serving clients in the music and entertainment industries. I have created original artwork for The Rolling Stones, Guns N' Roses, the Portland Trail Blazers, Lucasfilm, Slipknot, Slayer, Mastodon and numerous others.
 I got my professional start working full-time for Winterland Productions (Separation Manager), CNET Gamecenter.com (Art Director) and 1UP.com (Design Director). The business I founded, XIII Design, LLC, celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2023. I work both digitally and traditionally and I continue to design a myriad of  t-shirt and other merchandise graphics for the music industry. 
When not working for clients, I create drawings, paintings and prints that reflect my truest artistic loves, combining elements of nature and the absurd. I work in pen & ink, watercolor, relief printing and oils. My influences include Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch, Monty Python and Marcel Duchamp. The underlying aim of my art is generally humor, via a sort of friendly mysteriousness.
Since moving to Portland, OR in 2015, I have created many new pieces of art, which I often have printed as vinyl stickers. The stickers have unexpectedly served as calling cards and conversation starters. I give them away to clients, restaurant staff, new friends and confused strangers. I’ve been honored to see them placed in public view in such Portland institutions as Division Wines, Geino's, Stammtisch, Danwei Canting, Chicken and Guns, Afuri and Sapphire Lounge. 
In 2020, I published the Frosting University Kitchen Workbook, An Absurd but Serious Cookbook by Josiah Frosting. The book was financed via a successful Kickstarter campaign and was funded within the first 36 hours. It went on to be 165% funded by 78 backers. An expanded paperback version will be available not too soon via Frosting University Press.
In 2022, I launched MYOWZ, a cat-themed brand of holiday merchandise. This successful Kickstarter campaign for Halloween enamel pin designs has expanded to include other holidays. 10% of the profits from MYOWZ are donated to cat adoption charities.
I live with the love of my life, Allison, and my cat, Leopold. Aside from art, my interests include French, esoterica, history, travel, gardening, wine, cooking, classical music and The Sisters of Mercy.
