This was a last minute decision for me. I had done the artwork for it and after a brief lapse of reality...it just didn't fit. So I called my friend Dave and asked if I could use one of his sketches I saw a while back. (He's also credited on the left side of the poster.) I redrew the sketch in illustrator....sheepishly going for that delicious Saul Bass look but not trying that hard.
It was fun to just DESIGN the thing. I wasn't worried about line weights, light sources, proportions or anything. It's nice to stray from the boundaries you set up for yourself.
Then I did that MEKONS poster and jumped back into my cage. Discipline is fun too.
i was totally surprised that this was by brian ewing. why? because i'm easily surprised. brian ewing is good. really, really good. nice style switch. and my favorite band name is in this. it's really long, guess which one it is.
