Ween - Millennium Center - Winston Salem, NC - 4-7-2011

Brothers Past - Theater of the Living Arts - Philadelphia, PA - New Years Eve 09

For BP's New Years bash we present: The New Year's machine! Follow the little baby up the 12 months of the year until he's an old man at the top. Then jump inside while you churn, process and spit out a fresh piece of worthless flesh that will always be lesser than the year which preceded it.

25" x 19" silver ink printed on brick red paper.

Gingham - The Brass Lantern - December 26th 2009

It's Gingham! Ya know.. GINGHAM!! The local band that's fronted by our good friend Jon Pretz, also co-cowner of Abnrml.

Well known fact: This is the image that was appropriated for Asian bootleg wallets which were sold to a few LA boutiques last year . If anyone has one of these wallets, we'll trade ya for the real print!

Seriously.. we want one!

Brothers Past - The Bowery - New York NY 9-26-09

 25" x 19" 4 color printed on jellybean green paper. Check out the little details such as the skeletal hand posing as a rose stem. The green in the background disappears in certain light, almost to the same effect as a spot varnish. Some of these are still available at the T-Bone and Aljax store.

What does she want?

REVENGE! Sweet sweet revenge, too bad no one told her that the piece of wife beating crap that's passed out on the chair has rights, and murder is frowned on here in the good ol' U.S.of A.

Ah well, she'll have the rest of her life to think about it while trading cigarettes and working on her core.

When Abnrml approached us and asked who they should try to contact to do posters for, our immediate and simultaneous response was WEEN!

And holy crap, they got em!

This roughly 14" x 25" limited run of only 80 prints was sold out at the show before the band hit the stage. 4 colors printed on French cream cordtone, for that authentic storybook look.

InnerPartySystem/ Six O Clock Saints poster

Wow has it been two years already? This little two-parter poster set marked the first venture of the T-Bone & Aljax / Abnrml teamup. A six color beast printed on black. A very small print run of close to 25 each of these were produced.

 They display Jack and Rexella Van Impe, a couple of "end of the world" barking televangelists who lure the viewer into their creepy hypnotic-psychotic glares.

The poster design itself was an homage to the figures of authority on the enormous screens in George Orwells 1984 film by Michael Radford... complete with a captive sheep audience.
