Back from Bonnaroo, New Mogwai poster

Mogwai Bonnaroo poster held up by good pal Lance Saunders of SLC

Just returned from the annual trek to Manchester TN, to participate in the American Poster Institute sale at Bonnaroo 2012.  Many thanks to all the kind folks I talked with about music and art as well as a hearty thanks to those who purchased work from me.  The support always means a great deal.
Its always a crazy affair, running a tent from 10 am to 2:30 am 4 days in a row at a music festival.  One nice thing this year is that I was afforded the opportunity to make a poster for one of my favorite bands, Mogwai.  They put on a sublime and magnificent performance, one that seeing from 3 feet away left an indelible impression on me.  I chose to go "old school punk rock" on the artwork for this poster, keeping the style raw and bold, taking cues from the song title "How to be a Werewolf" off of "Hardcore will never die, but you will (2011)"

I have approx 12 copies left from the edition , they are up for sale now in my shop.
