My latest submit to threadless.com. Called "Texas Toast", I'm very pleased with this piece for a few reasons. It's my highest scored piece, has gotten the most comments (and votes) and has lasted the longest on the site (4 days & counting) so I'm happy about all that. And to top it off, some people who I really respect (in the threadless community) have commented on it- the best thing so far in my opinion. I'm already working on a few other ideas. Back to the sketchbook & computer! Regards, -Lance

There's a story that goes with this piece. First off, I'm a HUGE Pearl Jam fan. One of my all-time favorite groups. I have over 300 of their songs on my ipod. Yes, 300. I have dozens of live & bootleg stuff over the years. Plus I'll buy any single or cover they do. Songs like "Last Kiss", "Solider of Love" and "Fortunate Son". And I love classic rock like the Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, etc. etc. I also surf the web looking for various art sites, font sites, design & trend sites. A few weeks ago I came across the Ames Bros. A design group from Seattle that did Pearl Jam concert posters among many, many other things. I then googled "Pearl Jam posters"- and I was amazed. Wow. There were tons of them from artists the world over dating back to 1998. I thought: "I have to get in on this!" So this is my first sketch of one of my favorite Pearl Jam covers. I hope to have many more concert posters in the coming year(s).
