Yellowbirds video for "Young Men of Promise."
What fun it was to collaborate with pal Sam Cohen of the band, Yellowbirds, on a video for their single, "Young Men of Promise." Sam is a stopmotion wizard and it was such an exciting proces to see how he imagined my work coming to life. I especially loved working together to create the painted animation sequences.
Rocketship Park's Cakes and Cookies
Rocketship Park’s second album “Cakes and Cookies” is a sweet and twangy treat created by my dear friend and renaissance man Josh “Kaufi” Kaufman with a talented collective of comrades supporting the cause.
The first 100 7” lps were pressed on black and white split vinyl like a black and white cookie. Hand numbered and letter-pressed. Each order came with a delicious homemade cookie from the Kaufman-Nero kitchen. Coolest package ever.
Suz Slezak's "Watching The Nighttime Come"
David Wax Museum's Suz Slezak, "Watching the Nighttime Come" is a collection of original lullabies for all ages. I have such great memories of listening to these songs up in Vermont one summer as I worked on the painting for the album artwork. So happy to have been included in such a great project.
