My Son’s T-Shirt Art

I have rarely written about my son’s art on this blog. He majored in graphics design at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. His first job after high school was working as a silkscreen artist for a T-Shirt company.

I love his design sensibilities. I want to help him promote a T-Shirt design he is featuring for sale on Cotton Bureau, Psychadelic Sunset.  He writes, “The shapes we see in the clouds are a side effect of happiness. What do you see?”

You can see more of the T-Shirt colors here. He is selling them for a nominal price and has 4 more days to sell 4 shirts. He needs to sell 12 to get his print run printed. He’s 2/3rds of the way there.

I appreciate you taking the time to look at my son’s T-Shirt art.

Proud Father

 

Father’s Day 2014, A Beautiful Day in the Music of Our Heart

This has been a wonderful Father’s Day 2014. The weather has cooperated marvelously, its Sunny, 76 degrees and there is a slight, cool breeze in the air.

I was very touched to receive from my son, Matthew a meaningful music gift he hand crafted on Spotify. He made my very own Spotify Music Playlist. Matthew has made TODAY playlists on Spotify that I love listening to online.

He surprised me with the image and the psychedelic rock art. I recall the day his Mother took this picture of us on our living room floor.

This is what my son wrote on my Facebook wall today 🙂

#HappyFathersDay to the ORIGINAL music man. to those who don’t know, it’s where all my love for music comes from. The day i learned how to stand, was the same day i learned how to rock! I really couldn’t have done it without the help of Edward David Jennings

So in Honor of #OMJ and Fathers Everywhere who have taught us maybe more than they know. Here’s a little Special playlist to show you where my family comes from. Long Live Rock!

Thank you Matthew it is you who rocks. I am so blessed to share the love, music and memories with you and Mom. I am really proud to be your Father.

 

Good News For People Who Love Bad News

I thought I would share my son Matt Jennings’s music graphic design art with you today.  He is a fan of Modest Mouse among other artists. Matt has designed the first in a new series of album inspired art for sale on Society6.

is the ingenious new platform for empowering artists by connecting them with supporters and matching them with grants.

Matt based his first album inspiration art on the 2004 Modest Mouse recording,  Good News For People Who Love Bad News

Inspired by the Album with the same name by Modest Mouse. Released in 2004, and has still remained one of my favorite albums to date. – Matt Jennings
