|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.
