Odorifous: Christopher McMahon

Chris McMahon Interview
Odorifous is an interview series I started in 2010 to share a little behind the people who I find inspiring in some way. Some are well-known artists, while others are private individuals I feel very lucky to have discovered.

Know someone inspiring? Tell me about them on Twitter!

Weezer’s newest release was off my radar for much of this year. Generally I stay abreast of upcoming music—especially from my favorite bands, but over the years Weezer and I have slowly shifted from blood-brothers to good old friends you rarely visit but feels like “yesterday” when you do. Even when I first heard rumors something new was coming from Weezer, I didn’t give it nearly the attention I might have fifteen, ten, or even five years ago.

Then I saw the Weezer cover art for Everything Will be Alright in the End.

Lyle Lovett Gig Poster

Lyle Lovett Gig Poster

Well no sooner do I post about my exciting new job for a creative startup company, that I’m afraid to announce it has already ended. Anytime you jump into a startup you run the risk of it never starting up at all, and sadly that’s what’s happened this time around.

4 People I Don’t Trust

A man in a tie

Anyone very close to me knows I have my fair share of character flaws, but I’m lucky to say that “judgemental” is not one of them. I tend to accept people where they are, regardless of how they look or what they have done or associations they might have.

There are, however a handful of people I have a really hard time trusting, based entirely on external, mostly illogical, totally unfair criteria. Can you relate to any of these untrustworthy characters?

John Hughes Posters Liquidation Sale

John Hughes 16 Candles Poster


Several years ago I was commissioned to create a series of posters for the Traverse City Film Festival in honor of John Hughes’ amazing body of work. Obviously I’m a huge fan of practically everything he ever created, so the project was incredibly fun, and was also a great opportunity for me as I was just finding my niche as an illustrator.

I have a handful of these left in my house and I want them gone!

New Job and New Brandi Carlile Poster

Brandi Carlile Gig Poster

I started a new job recently as the Art & Design Director for a local event production company. Many friends have asked about it, but I have not had time to share any details about the change publicly, since I began right in the midst of our busiest (read: crazy) season and had to jump in with both feet—which honestly is the best way to do anything.
