I am in the process of switching over to a new blog site. Most of this work is from when I was still in school and hasn't been updated in close to a year. For now please refer to my website www.joeljensenheath.com as a means to view new work/contact me.

Promotional poster for The Vanderbuilts record release "What We Forget". http://thevanderbuilts.com/new/
Also with good friends of ours Shear Agony!
Website lay out for NY based indie pop band The Vanderbuilts. http://thevanderbuilts.com/
This piece is dedicated to the Velvet Underground...I love you John Cale.
So here's just a million monsters I've been drawing and collaging in the past few weeks, this piece will be colored...someday...soon. I will probably do one edition digitally and another traditionally, I've been really favoring lately how immediately gratifying the process is of inking the lines by hand and then coloring and adjusting digitally.
It's the wasted years so close behind Lou.

So I was involved in a music project near the end of summer called Ronette Polaski. The sound to say the least was a mashup to utilize several sub genres of alternative music including math rock, shoegaze, and jangle pop. I am proud to call this genre gangly pop as this sound is very melodic with pop sensibilities while still having a broken off kilter feel from the rhythm. Unfortunately the project is on an indefinite hiatus as most of the members are not in the same city but I'm glad we at least have salvaged this recording. I'm on guitar and vocals with Garrett Koloski on drums, Max Newland on bass, and Ray McAndrew on the controls and second guitar. Here's a link to our bandcamp with a cheap download, hopefully it will have more songs in the future.

This piece was inspired by an act of violence I personally experienced outside of my apartment near the end of the summer. The assignment was to depict a crash so conceptually I decided to offer the the aftermath of a stabbing and segment it with the moments leading up to the incident. Drew from personal experience with an unrelated assignment that I think panned out well. The lead singer of my old band Gyaos posed for the image, http://gyaos.bandcamp.com.
