Wow… This has got to be one of the coolest events I’ve ever been able to design a poster for. John at Kickstand Productions put together this incredible bill comprised of one of the bands I’ve followed since my high school years, Alkaline Trio, and one of the bands I currently reside in, The Felix Culpa. Needless to say, I immediately jumped all over the opportunity to do a poster for this show. I wanted this one to be awesome so I took the opportunity to go all out with the over-the-top, whimsically dark style that Alkaline Trio has become synonymous with over the years. They always have such distinct visuals and I wanted this one to feel right at home along side their other stuff.
I was unsure of the type treatment at first, but it has actually started to grow on me. I think hand drawing the type would’ve been too much. It needed something to reign it all in. Hopefully it works. Let me know what you think.
These will be silk screened and available for purchase at the event, signed and numbered, limited to 30.
