Please excuse the mess.
This was a relatively quick project to celebrate the release of Furrows third full-length record. The accompanying video will be played release parties and is presented here so you can see how I make them. This one was built in about a day, which is moving very fast for me. So I had to adhere pretty closely to photos to get faces right. But the photos go away pretty quickly and I just start filling in, defining light and shadow areas. It's very tedious work, but the video actually makes it look fun because it's all fast forward and such.
This is a poster for The Walkmen's upcoming show at Houston's Warehouse Live. Or rather, this is the poster I'm lobbying hard to become the official poster. I wanted to capture the americana meets euro meets garage vibe of the band in a visual metaphor, and found Monaco GP racing to be a great solution. It has drama, exotic locale, and a vintage vibe that communicates a tone of holidays in the European sun that their music captures so effectively. Plus, you know, race cars and palm trees.
Update: I got to meet not only my favorite band of all time The Walkmen, but opener Milo Green also, and got them all to sign the poster! Truly one of the highlights of my poster designing career.
This is fun little spec poster I did for the upcoming The Flaming Lips tour. It isn't official or anything...hell, I doubt the band will ever see it. But sometimes you do these because you can. And this is a fun mashup of Dr. Who imagery and the charasmatic band as they attempt to play eight shows in 24 hours. It may well require some time-lording to get it done.
Download the FREE high-res art for this poster and print it out for yourself! It's a big ole' 18x24 poster, so you are going to have to use a printer that can do that. Or shrink it which may require you to trim it down to size, so don't forget to print with crop marks. One thing though...this is a FREE download and not for commercial purposes. DO NOT SELL because I CAN'T SELL IT!!! Copyrights and such.
