New Interview, by El Jefe for The Vinyl District, Screening Process

Well, color me blushing.

The super talented and extremely cool Jeffery Everett of El Jefe Design, in Washington DC asked me to do an interview for his series called The Screening Process on a blog that he regularly contributes to called The Vinyl District. (Please check out TVD it’s amazing! For instance, I just found a great post with some old David Sylvan / Japan mp3s. And here, I thought that I was the only one who liked Japan then, let alone now.)

Jefferey’s questions were really great, and my responses were kinda…well, me. Ha! Anyway, if you are interested in the behind the scenes sort of process, thought, and mindsweat that goes into design and hand screenprinting posters and prints, SHA-BAM! This interview will wet your whistle, cowboy.

The interview is posted here for you and definitely check out El Jefe Design’s work, he’s quite the fella. And, he will also be appearing at the Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair on October 3rd, 2009. Can’t wait to hang out and look at his work in person.
