One Question Interviews: Knife Hits

Jake Smith (Knife Hits)

SPB: Who is your favorite flyer/gigposter artist?

Smith: I narrowed my answer to a tie between two amazing artists and they happen to be two of my best friends. From my earliest days of playing shows in Florida (about 15 years ago), Vivek Vasudeva made the coolest flyers for our bands, I remember one that looked like The National Enquirer with pictures of "bat boy" and each headline was a piece of information about the show. He STILL makes amazing posters/flyers for shows in his now hometown of Portland, OR. My other favorite is Ryan Fromdeland, sometimes he throws together flyers in Photoshop that look like newspaper clippings from science fiction movies in the ‘60s, or sometimes he'll draw something by hand with a unique style, extreme detail, and always punk as fuck. Over the years, these two artists really seem to have influenced each other. It's amazing to watch friends influence one another with their art whether it be music or pen on paper, or anything else.
