Throwback Thursday: A version of the Remission horse that I made originally for a shirt design for Mastodon’s first tour of Japan (circa 2003). Japanese woodblock prints have long been an influence on my work; in particular Kuniyoshi and Yoshitoshi. This panel now appears in the reissue of Remission available @relapserecords. I’ve always loved that album and it was great to have the opportunity to reconsider my work from over a decade ago.
Also, I made a screen print of this back in 2009. Some are still available over at:
