New screen print for Alabama Shakes with Drive By Truckers at the Mann in Philadelphia! 3 colors on 18" x 24" white paper. Printed by our partners at Abnrml. We'll have a very small run available this weekend in the store (edit: sorry, SOLD OUT!)
A long long time ago, we were in a band called the Six O Clock Saints.
During our shows, we projected remixed animations and found movie footage
that matched the tone of our set and we, from time to time, would throw our own
films and shorts into the mix. The classic countdown (or STMPE leader)
was one that we projected at every show for years and we loved it...
until we were hit with a cease and desist.
As it turned out, we discovered that this particular countdown was still owned and
created by Universal Pictures. So using it was a no-no.
So Aljax re-drew and animated every frame and, along the way, changed all of
the static images (or film notes) that occur before the 10-9-8- - to read
Six O Clock Saints. Now we had our very own countdown to project at our shows.
One of the Saints frames from the beginning.
Here is the scribble (that scrolls upward really fast) tiled together to reveal a surprise.
Then a crazy thing happened, it was uploaded to youtube in 2007 and the vid went
viral (it has over 1 million views). It was downloaded thousands of times and used in hundreds of other folks videos (usually with the end cut out.) Sometimes it was just re-uploaded by other folks as is.
The OG color way, this poster represents a few of the mysteries of planet Earth, all while being neatly kept inside the BoomBox sigil. This was how the piece originally looked when it was to be used for their April tour dates:
The next, now being used for 3 dates in July for the band's 2nd annual Boomtown festival:

T-bone and Aljax were commissioned by our good friends at Paisley Moon to create a new version of the Space Robot Girl design we had created for them back in '06, to be used for a new promotional hat. We decided on an 8-bit version dominating the city.
Over half of black hemp shell is an embroidered pixelated version of Reading, PA, with additional patches on top featuring the Robot Girl and Paisley Moon logos.
The silk inside is a printed pixelated brain, on the brim is are 2 silkscreened eyeballs
And, the first time seeing our logo embroidered into something, all legit and shit
manufactured by Grassroots California, available at Paisley Moon stores and merch stands
Excited to announce that 2 of our posters are featured in Matthew Chojnacki's newest book, Alternative Movie Posters II: More Film Art from the Underground! Coming at ya in November. Follow the link for more details:
Hey all! Over 7 months of silence, we've never been busier! We'll be posting a ton of works over the next few days, so let's just start from the beginning shall we?
First, Hydra Artist Studios.
T-Bone & Aljax collaborated with, built, and share this place with 5 of the most awesomely talented dudes we've ever had the pleasure of not just calling friends, but family. For those who aren't in the RDG area, it's a 10,000+ square foot creative playground with individual workshops for all walks of the arts such as film, design, music, photography, painting... the list goes on. The space also holds a green screen cyclorama studio, a movie theater, performance/ runway stage with VIP room, 2 bars, an arcade, mini golf and an auxiliary gallery/ common area.
We opened our doors on November 14th to an enormously receptive packed house. The pics above (photo credits Andy Jackson) show the main gallery space, featuring our art and the art of our homies. Performances, corset fashion show, and the vaudeville sideshow on opening night are shown below (photos credit Bryan Elias)

And 3's Co. holding it down through the event and finishing the evening (well, 4 a.m.)
And finally, the 7 of us together in the freight elevator:
