Office Safari by Mike & Ben
For those regarded as warriors, when engaged in combat the vanquishing of thine enemy can be the warrior’s only concern. Suppress all human emotion and compassion. Kill whoever stands in thy way, even if that be Lord God, or Buddha himself. This truth lies at the heart of the art of combat.
I’m really happy with this poster. I wanted to keep it bleak and spare, but hinting at the epic; the record is like that. I knew I wanted to fill a lot of it with black ink, too… just, wanted the grassland to kind of almost be swallowing up the character. Which, I don’t usually draw likenesses of the performers that are playing the show when I draw posters, but this time felt like just about the prefect opportunity. I don’t really know Chris that well, but I do feel like he’s putting himself out there, being honest and revealing on this record. It’s genuine and smart.
This poster also felt like a departure, color-wise. I was definitely feeling the mid-western earth-tones. I think this may be the first of a new direction using color.
I might actually go to this show, so if you’re in Pittsburgh and you see me out there- say “hi”.
The ending to “Super Dodge Ball” on the Nintendo Entertainment System.
Like many things made during the 80’s, it’s heavy with Cold War images — an American victory over the Russians…
Absolute favorite NES game ever.

Can’t believe this came out in 1992. I’m old. Still one of my fave tracks. Brings back memories of sweaty punk rock shows with face to face, hot water music and nofx covers.
