Oh, Hello Design Guru,

I’d sure be grateful for you to create the t-shirt/press poster/promo card image
that will represent my upcoming world tour.
Maybe you already have…

Here’s some guidelines:
– The official tour title=
Riled Up and Wasted On Light – Buddy Wakefield’s 2014/15 World Tour (Skipping Chechnya)
– It can be new or existing artwork, and you own all the rights to it.
– If your work is the match for this tour you’ll get due credit, linked on buddywakefield.com and anything else you care to negotiate.
– Send all images/links to your images to buddy@buddywakefield.com, not FB. Thanks for doing that.
– Here’s some context for the title of the tour =
You remember that time
we sat on top of the whole world
and told each other jokes about the ocean
until everybody crumbled
into tattoos
of bakeries?
Smelled good.
Felt right.
Laughed
so much.
That night
was always lookin’ for a 4-leaf clover.

Nothing to do with luck.

Any revelation.
Any size.
If we thought it would help
we would tell it to you
like a drunk octopus
riled up and wasted on light.

Like this,
like,
energy
can neither be created
nor destroyed.
That means
we are all exactly the same age
happening at exactly the same time.
Well well welcome
to a room full of self-declared “old souls”
in juvenile clothes.
Let’s blow the cake off our candles
and the starving
off of the words
that are stuck to our throats.
