LEMMY! And me!

Funny ol' world, innit?

Got put in touch with the directors of the forthcoming documentary (Cheers Artie!!!) about everyone's favorite handlebar-'stache-sporting, living (although how is anyone's guess...) legend about touring the mighty offices of Family Guy as the mighty Mr. Kilmister and his band are apparently big fans of the show.

Didn't realize two e-mails later I'd be involved with putting a face to the movie for the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. With the aid of the fantastically talented Kaya Dzankich, we came up with some ideas and threw them at Wes and Greg, the movie's directors, and eventually, the Big Lem himself.

Proud to present the fruits of our labor.

Lemmy's amp (sometimes known as Murder One. You ever seen Motorhead live, you'll know why!) and designed by Marshall doubles as a t-shirt design and fucking kickass skateboard deck.

The finished poster. Would've been too easy to find a pic of Lemmy being 'wacky' but we felt there's a man in there too, not just the bottle-of-Jack-a-day frontman of Motorhead everyone knows by heart. (Even my 76 year old ma knows who Lemmy is. Mind you, she's only twelve years older than the man!)
Personally, I think he looks appropriate in this pic for a movie about himself: Iconic and invincible and most importantly, looking down upon the rest of us because let's fucking face it: He's Lemmy and we're not...

'Lemmy' prepares to flatten Texas this Monday...

'Lemmy' goes fucking MOBILE!! (Sorry! I never played in a band so seeing artwork I've been involved with emblazoned upon the side of a tourbus is as close to that as I'm ever going to get!!!)

'Lemmy' trailer:

Can't tell you all how excited we were to be a part of the movie. Wes and Greg were the perfect clients and I've no doubt the movie's going to be excellent. We all seemed to be on the same wavelength from the start and as Lemmy and Motorhead might as well be fucking superheroes to me, this was a dream come true to land on our laps the way it did.
