Bragging Rights

My cousin Sean had recently been commissioned to design t-shirts for indie-folk band Fleet Foxes. To be sold throughout their summer tour of '09, the group had first noticed Sean's profile of drawings on a music forum they frequent.

Drawing is in Sean's blood. So is his love of music. It was only a matter of time.
And yes, it really is that simple.

No one holds a candle to singer Robin Pecknold in Sean's eyes.
Call it what you want. Bromance. Man-Crush. The love is pure.
His greatest wish is even to grow a beard.
(Sorry, but it isn't gonna happen for you):

Check the final image:

these were the color palettes chosen by the band as options for the shirts. they were kind enough to keep Sean involved along the way.

After that magical August night...

so...how was it?? was it ALL you imagined it would be??

: SO amazing!!
Robin said there were three reasons why this concert is special
number one we're in massey hall
number two dungen just played an amazing set
and 3, we have t-shirts downstairs by a toronto native artist named Sean Lewis.

me: he said that to you backstage!?

sean: no, on stage! everyone clapped for me!!! it was incredible!

You know, no big deal.

Missing his moment at Massey Hall pangs my heart, just-a lil'.
Next one cuz. xx
