I'm so excited, I just finished up my first ever shoe design and it's a Converse shoe for holiday 2008!!!! I'll post actual pics when I get the samples...
Christopher Bettig won third place out of 15000 designs in Japan's Graniph Design Awards!!! Really excited about this too, the few times I've been in Japan I've always gone to the Graniph stores and loved their shirts, and I'm proud to have won and be a part of the Graniph family.
theMountainLabel was hired to develop elements of the new holiday 2007 ad campaign for womens' clothing line / retailer ARDEN B. Full page ads coming out in Vogue, Lucky etc.. should be in the November 2007 issues... as well as in store/window signage... more to come!
A beautiful new book by Gavin Lucas about the art of badges, button and pins... featuring a nice spread on theMountainLabel as well as so many talented artists/designers from all over the world. available at amazon
Dublab introduces their newest art project, Dreamscene, with an installation at the A+D Museum in Los Angeles. Featuring a new poster design by me as well as art from a ton of other amazing people! My poster is a concert poster for the various aliases / personas of Will Oldham, one of my all time favorites.

Again, Jeremyville rocks! here are some new designs for the second edition of the Jeremyville Sketchel project... I rarely do things with type or text, but I really like this one, I hope you do too.
I've got a new piece in a show in downtown LA at the UNITARD GALLERY 706 East 1st St. LA, CA 90012. SATURDAY APRIL 28 8PM-2AM. The piece is made from found papers and masking tape. It's the beginning of a new body of work made from found paper (junk mail, off the street, packaging, shopping bags etc) collages, this new work also will be featured on a new collaboration with Poketo in late 2007 / 2008... but that's for a different post on a different day. The show features work by Frohawk 2 Feathers, Katsuo Design, Albert Reyes and several others...
I love Jeremyville, the first time I was in Sydney I hung out in the shop and met a bunch of really cool people, (and I love Jeremy's work too) so when I was asked to be a part of the Sketchel project, of course I was excited. This new book features some of my pieces, buried in a sea of tons of amazing work by a ton of artists... the book comes with stickers and a dvd too.
Lily Savitch A Boutique opens on MARCH 1ST!!!! theMountainLabel was hired to develop the boutique, and therefore designed and constructed all the stores' fixtures as well as the art elements. The Boutique is located at 524 1/2 N La Brea Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90036. 323/933.3133
