Foburg is a 3-day alternative music festival on March 11-13, 2011 in venues on Frenchmen Street and the surrounding neighborhood. It’s all about bringing together great local bands and touring bands to create one of the most memorable weekends in the local rock scene.
Foburg features rock, indie rock, and alternative artists from the greater Gulf South and national touring artists on their way to SXSW in Austin TX. Foburg also helps the historic Frenchmen Street by drawing fans of a less “traditional” genres of music to its venues.
Foburg 2010 featured 10 venues, 100 bands, and crowds approaching 10,000 people. Foburg 2011 aims to be twice as big, with 20 venues and 200 bands.
I designed two posters for 2010 shows and I was honored when Simple Play asked me to design a poster for one of the 2011 shows! The Jean Eric poster that I designed is below along with their new music video… which is awesome!
One Book, One New Orleans is a community wide reading program of the Young Leadership Council and the Literacy Alliance of Greater New Orleans.
During a reading period every year, One Book encourages residents of the Greater New Orleans Area aged 16 years and older to engage in the common endeavor of reading the same book at the same time. Their aim is that through this shared experience, residents from the different communities of Greater New Orleans come together and embrace their similarities by reading, discussing, and attending events relating to the same book. The 2010 book is Satchmo: My Life in New Orleans by Louis Armstrong.
I was asked to design the poster for this years campaign and have really enjoyed working on this project!

I was approached a few weeks ago about designing some posters for a Lusher Charter School fundraiser. Since I am a Lusher Lion (class of ’97) – I could not refuse! Here are the posters that I designed inspired by John W. Golden. The posters are a fun way to encourage the students to have pride in themselves and to do their best! They will be for sale at the Lusher Crawfish Boil, Saturday March 13 at the Willow Street Campus. Proceeds will go to the Lusher PTSA.
