‘When Austin Got Weird’ at the Bob Bullock Museum

It was an enormous honour to be asked to be part of a panel discussion for the ‘When Austin Got Weird’ exhibition at Austin’s Bob Bullock Museum.

Leea from the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture interviewed myself, fellow local artist Billy Perkins and legendary artists from the 70’s Jim Franklin & Guy Juke (Michael Priest was a no-show unfortunately) in what was a fascinating insight into their process at the time and their view of poster art as a changing medium.

I also designed a commemorative poster that was used to demo the screen printing process. It features an old picture of Armadillo artist Jim Franklin wearing his ‘armadillo crown’ which he made to wear when announcing the live acts. The panel audience were able to pull themselves, even Jim Franklin had a go!
