Unrecorded did a festival game post where they asked a few music bloggers to construct their dream festivals. Then they contacted some designers to make posters for them. Here’s my contribution:
Here’s an odd one. Awhile ago, I had a guy contact me and ask if I could make a poster for a show. That happens often enough, but this one was for a show that happened in 1999.
Apparently, that particular show meant a lot to him and some of his friends, and he really wanted to have a keepsake from it. He said that he didn’t like flyers that were just a shot of the band standing around, and was more interested in a weird illustration (so he came to the right lady). I pulled some things from their History of the Concept of the Soul, he’s got the crown belt buckle for King Dork, and the checkered floor from the Metro, this shit has LAYERS. The guy and his friends were happy, and even sent a copy along to Dr. Frank, who posted it on his blog thing.
And, small world, it turns out the guy and I had both been at Insubordination Fest where Dr. Frank was playing just a few months before he got in touch with me.
Have something crazy that you’d like a poster of? Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This one got a little dark. But hey, it’s a dark episode, folks.
I’m up to #3 out of 14 – this is gonna be a pretty long project. You can help fund it by buying a poster. Oh, did I mention if you buy one on Black Friday that the shipping is free? I didn’t? Well, it is.
You guys remember that Firefly poster series I’m working on?
Edit: The store is up and running! Posters are $15, and you can buy one at the Moore Store (they’re also on Etsy, take your pick). If you want to get on the list, and be alerted when new designs hit the shop, you can sign up here.
