Introducing the Major Tex Design By Brad Albright
For years KXT has featured the work of a local artist on t-shirts, pint glasses and mugs during our membership campaigns. This year, we’re excited to introduce a new design from Brad Albright! His Major Tex design will be featured on exclusive KXT swag during our 2019 Fall Membership Campaign.
Brad Albright is a Dallas-based gallery artist, poster designer and freelance illustrator best known for his modern approach to interactive ‘OldSchool 3D’ anaglyphic art for red/blue glasses. Drawing in a line-art style reminiscent of underground comics and classical woodcut engravings, his illustration work is equally inspired by comic books, rock and heavy metal, gaming culture, literature, film and television.
His process merges traditional fine art training with an illustrator’s narrative sensibility and modern digital toolset. And whether exploring the Wild West, satirizing pop-culture, or celebrating live music, his work is often presented in OldSchool 3D with red/blue glasses for a modern take on a nostalgic viewing experience.
The Major Tex Design
Here’s what Brad has to say about his design:
“There’s something retro-futuristic and nostalgic about the idea of a Space Cowboy, right? I like to think that’s all of us as we tune into KXT. Through the Republic of Music, we are a collective of independent, forward thinking rock stars, all of us! Floating out there in the cosmos, sometimes far apart from one another, yet the radio waves keep us all connected as we experience the music together… throwing our hands up in a rock n’ roll salute.”
