Here’s a preview of  the silkscreen editions I’ll  be showing at Beatnik, an amazing gallery space in beautiful Sacramento, California. The opening reception is Friday, June 27th 6-9 pm and it will be up until Friday, July 25th. I have long been interested in calligraphy and continuous line drawing. Here, the two ages-old techniques are married on archival printmaking paper in glorious silkscreen color!

The Japanese Beatles

July 8, 2013

Yellow Magic Orchestra are the most popular pop band in the history of Japan. Their uniquely Japanese and very electronic influence on modern music can be heard all over the world, as their fame seems to grow every passing year, even though they are no longer a recording outfit. I was lucky enough to catch them in a rare live performance at the “Big In Japan” festival at the Hollywood Bowl in 2011. I’ve also included the press image for the event, (a special treat in it’s own right) created by Tadanori Yokoo, a close friend and collaborator of YMO founder Haroumi Hosono. He was also one of the masters of the psychedelic poster era, and a huge influence of mine.Haroumi Hosono

A Trick of the Light

November 10, 2012

My brother Tyler Ragle’s outstanding new album, A Trick of the Light was just released and is available for purchase from Richard March’s website or streaming on myspace. I was thinking a little along the lines of the Pink Floyd albums by Hipgnosis, specifically their usage of 4 disparate images to represent the theme Wish You Were Here (1975). I think it makes for an unusual and interesting visual. Tyler asked me what the house number stands for. Nothing!

A Trick of the Light

Storm Thorgerson’s cover and interior sleeve images for Wish You Were Here were part of my inspiration during the sketching phase.
