Soul Clappin and Dancin in Madison Square Park

It's been a couple months but I'm back with a new Soul Clap poster. You may notice this one is looking a little different from the previous ones and it's because.....get ready for it.... it's the first ever outdoor Soul Clap and Dance Off!! And it's all going down at Madison Square Park

Randy Jones, of The Village People, will be rejoining Jonathan for another adventure of twisting and shaking in the name of winning of some sweet prizes and the admiration of your peers. It all begins on Wednesday, July 29th, at 6pm. One more thing, IT'S FREE!!

The Vans x Homegrown anniversary special

I had the honor of working on a pretty special project for my friends skate shop in Ithaca, NY a few months ago. The 10 year anniversary of his shop, Homegrown,  is coming up this fall and Vans approached him about doing a t-shirt to commemorate this occasion and he reached out to me to do the illustration for it. It was a lot of fun to illustrate the skatepark I spent a great deal of time at when I was younger and include little nods to its flooding issues and a friends favorite pair of shoes. If you want one of these bad boys ya gotta get to Ithaca, go to Homegrown, buy a pair of Vans and hope the limited supply hasn't run out yet. Big thanks to Andrew and Joe for this opportunity.

A whole mess of thinking on paper has been included for your viewing pleasure.

Little chest detail on the front

Party in the back.

Pig Roast Poster for The Meat Hook

I quickly whipped this poster up for the gang at The Meat Hook for the pig roast they'll be having at Good Co Bar in Brooklyn. They've kept me well fed with their amazing sandwiches so I had to help them out with something. The event goes down on July 11th from 5-10pm. Tickets are available on the Good Co Facebook page.

Summer Solstice at Roberta's Pizza

Just wrapped up this poster for Roberta's Pizza summer solstice party on June 21st.  It all starts at 2pm and charges through for a sweet 8 hours of, hopefully, good times. In case you've never been, this place is a pizza goldmine and this could be as good a reason as any to get your butt there to give it a try. Maybe you'll even see the Clinton's there, casually snacking away. Loaded it up on the process pics for your viewing pleasure.

"You can't do that here."

A recent piece, a lil' labor of love, if you will. There's always someone out there trying to spoil your fun. Don't wanna preach too hard here but this is my apocalyptic vision of 'no skateboarding' signs. People have asked if I really saw this.

Mmmm. Doesn't that bench look nice? Bet you gotta switch flip over it.

Sneak peek of a special anniversary t-shirt comin to you shortly-ish.

Meanwhile, in between Soul Clap posters...

"The Whole Nine Yards" came from World War II. When every bit of ammo from the .50 caliber machine guns was fired from the fighter pilots planes onto a target, they got "the whole nine yards"

Went down to Asheville, NC recently to visit a good buddy of mine and we worked on some stuff together. Can't wait to see this "One Last Burger Before I Go" piece after it's fired.

Soul Clap Record Release Party!

New Soul Clap and Dance Off poster for May. I double borrowed from Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and Jonathan’s new album cover for this one. I’m a little bummed the gold paint didn’t really come across in the scan so I wanted to be sure to let you know I did use gold paint and, in person, it does shimmer. At least that way all my efforts were not in vain.
Better get to this one because the show takes a little break for a month or two during the summer. This is a special one, I mean, they’re all special, there’s always an amazing guest and great music but, this one is the release party for Jonathan Toubin’s Souvenirs of the Soul Clap Vol. 3 AND 4!!!! And April March will be the guest selector!!! It’s all happening this Saturday,May 16th, at Brooklyn Bowl from MIDNIGHT-4AM.

See! It really does shimmer! Ahh, nevermind.

The new Soul Clap and Dance Off poster is here!! Come get down with Jonathan Toubin on April 18th at BROOKLYN BOWL from 12-4am. We went with a New Orleans theme and chose James Booker, who, according to Dr. John was, "the best black, gay, one-eyed, junkie piano genius New Orleans has ever produced"

Soul Clap Prints Available!!!!

There are 3 new prints available on my site. All of them are the most recent Soul Clap posters I've done. Only a small amount were made so get one while you can!

In honor of Spring, I've decided that the Boss of Hearts and Escape From Choking in New York are going to be discounted a cool 40% so I can Spring clean and you can have a kick ass print for cheap. Both these and the Soul Clap prints can be found by clicking on portfolio and going to the prints section on my site.
