I was hired by Sonic Youth to make a poster for the kickoff show on their new tour supporting "the eternal" out on Matador. My buddy Mitch Putnam helped organize the series for them. There are a lot of amazing posters being made for this tour by some of the top artists in the poster game, so I was happy to be included.
Final Scratchboard image ( the drawing is from a series of "Monument Relocation Technicians" Ive been making lately.:
Second color being printed. (first was a darkblue/teal split fountain) This is a carmine red/red orange split.
Two Colors down.
Drawing on vellum for the 3rd layer.
Printing the 3rd layer, a metallic silver/gold split. Printed on the trusty Cameo.
Printing the 4th layer by hand on the very large vacuum table. Why print by hand? On this print it seemed I could get the best detail on this table. Screenprinting is idiosyncratic at times, for sure.
Daylight in the shop...
Final poster. 4 colors ,19 x 25.
Sonic Youth have bought most of this run. I will have approx 35 copies of this for sale starting tomorrow (Sunday) morning in my Etsy shop. They may go fast so keep your eyes open...
