Happy Winter Pittsburgh!
We’re really excited about our first illustration gig for The Pittsburgh City Paper, and doubly stoked that it’s the cover illustration for the 2013 Winter Guide.
Our chilly, sled loving bird in the ChillyBurgh is an olde timey Steeler fan as he graces the cover. The issue came out Wednesday, January 15th and will be around for one week around the city. And there’s even a digital edition here too.
Covering arts, music, theater, dance, excercise and cool things to do all around the city the Winter Guide is loaded with information about the things that make Pittsburgh so darn awesome. Don’t miss the much anticipated Pittsburgh City Paper Winter Guide!

Hooray! We recently got a chance to pair up with our friends in The Spinto Band to create a brand new t-shirt design for their new record Cool Cocoon‘s special pre-order sale. It’s our 2nd time working with these awesome dudes and we couldn’t be happier to do so. (See our tour poster for The Spintos here.)
Our mountain-fresh design is hand screen printed onto charcoal grey super soft American Apparel Tri-Blend Track tees (our favorites!) in both Men’s & Women’s sizes, these t-shirts go perfectly hand-in-hand with the gorgeous new cover of The Spinto Band’s forthcoming new album Cool Cocoon (available February 5th in the US).
These shirts are available exclusively at The Spinto Band‘s website and from the band directly as a part of their special pre-order sale.
There’s a t-shirt in every for pre-order option too, so there’s a bundle for everyone. There’s even a free song download too! Check out all of the pre-order sale bundles below or visit The Spinto Band here.

Ever hear the sound of your own voice and think it sounds super weird? Welcome to the next hour and change of our lives!
We had the supreme pleasure of spending a cold winter January evening in our studio in Friendship talking with the awesome duo of John DeGore and Carl Hueslman from AIGA Pittsburgh‘s creatives-interview podcast, Creative Briefs.
And now the (thrilling! chilling!) interview with us is live! Click here or click the above to listen in. John & Carl asked really great questions, and we also took some super fun question from the social media universe. And you *know* that’s always a good time.
Check out AIGA Pittsburgh’s Creative Briefs on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and the Creative Briefs homepage here with the full archive of their interviews and blog posts too.
Creative Briefs also invited us to utilize our pinning skills too and create a Board on Pinterest with fun stuff from things that came up in our interview too. Yay fun! See our Pinterest Board with some of our history and influences for Creative Briefs here (or click below!)
