I dig it. The b-ground color kind of brings it all together. As if it had the color of the jacket and skin mixed together and creates a good harmony to tie everything together. Look at Hess' stuff and he's all about harmony...and ebony..and ivory..side by side..
Anyway...the red/orange text over the b-ground color creates a nice extra color. It fills the space nicely and doesn't distract from the figure. Since we read from left to right, I, as the viewer, see the world balloon lead to the figure that leads to the text...repeat until you get to the tail and I can see the venue name.
My only suggestion would have been to make the venue name more visible.
Nice how you manage to fit your logo within most of your pieces.
yeah it's a screen print. It's actually the first time I used rubylith paper to do the seperations (I'm going backwards in method) It was a lot of fun to do actually except for the type, which I do because I think it just looks better to me.
I actually just mixed the colors on the spot when I was printing this. If I had it all to do over I would have lightened the background up a bit and used it as shading on the jacket as well. Oh well, live and learn.
Thanks alot! The club called me and told me that the posters I had given them were all taken from the club walls the first night they were hung. That's the nicest compliment I've gotten from a promoter ever.
