Very soon, Sal Canzonieri of the band Electric Frankenstein will be publishing a massive concert poster/rock art book, and a piece of mine created specifically for the tome will be included. Very cool stuff! Due out fall/winter 2006.
Check out the blurb Dark Horse Books is using to promote (via one of Sal’s posts on GigPosters.com)…
