Here's the final product! The "highly" anticipated silkscreen poster for our show with Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra at Schuba's in a few weeks. I'm happy with the finished design, but I gotta say my friend Jim and I had a hell of a time gettin' this 2-color sucker to print properly. 19"x25" metallic gold on sea green ink in an edition of 50.
We'll have the print for sale at the show and on our myspace page for around $12. The band and label will get a portion of the prints as well as some of the local stores in order to promote the show, so they will be in limited supply. Get 'em while they're hot!
A few weeks ago, I was asked by my Tanzanian friend Sebastian to do a reworking of a painting motif originally created by an African artist. The plan is for the image to go onto a t-shirt that will be distributed to close friends. The image is meant to celebrate the diversity of people, culture, and flora/fauna throughout the massive continent. Be sure to check out the not-for-profit Tamiha organization that Sebastian is involved with. More on the t-shirt as news arrives!
