chelsea hotel embroidery

"I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel you were talking so brave and so sweet..."

This song kept running through my head as I was making this patch, sensibly enough. The famed New York hotel where many rock luminaris have stayed, and Nancy Spungen met her sad end. Measuring 5" across, this patch was made for the Austin, texas band, Okkervil River's newest record, currently underway. As usual with the artwork I do for them, i don't know what they will or wont use of what make for them, so I will be curious to see if it gets picked.


The band, Okkervil river, out of Austin Texas, ended up using this for their lost coastlines, I tunes only single.


You can see the video for it here:


it is a wonderful thing, because this was the last time Jonathan Meiburg (also of Shearwater) was seen with O.R.
