Absolutely fucking fuming. The sound of the bats is all I have to keep myself calm.

Running through designs. Clean finalised version, soon to be embellished upon.

Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 1950s, when vinyl was scarce, people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. “They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole,” says author Anya von Bremzen. “You’d have Elvis on the lungs, Duke Ellington on Aunt Masha’s brain scan — forbidden Western music captured on the interiors of Soviet citizens.”

"Living in Nashville, I have been exposed to mixology and more modern interpretations of classic cocktails through friends that I have in the bartending industry. I wanted to pay tribute to some of my favorite classic cocktails with this series of block prints."
Straw Castle started out as small independent clothing line, which lead into something Derrick could have never imagined. A year or so into his clothing line release, he started getting emails from a wide range of clothing lines and merch groups that had seen his designs and loved what he was doing. It’s just unfortunate that this did not result in the way of sales for his clothing line. What it did do, is give him the opportunity to work with these kind folks creating designs for their perspective projects.
