PROCESS: Little Dragon

 

Concepts

I was honored to do a poster for Little Dragon, as they are one of my favorite bands. I had a fairly solid idea of what I wanted to from the start... so I delivered two fairly developed, color sketches to the AD (Jess Rogers) along with two type solutions for consideration. We ended up using the hummingbird image with a softer silhouette and more vibrant color scheme.

PROCESS: Miguel

concepts

It isn't very often that I get to draw or paint a musician's likeness for a poster, but hey... there's no denying it; Miguel is a sexy sexy man, and I wanted to play up his sexiness (see top right sketch). Because the final approved sketch was quite plain, I had some fun working with the type and border, and added in a nebula babe as a second-read.

PROCESS: Slightly Stoopid

concepts

I was extremely excited to do a poster for Slightly Stoopid, having been a fan of theirs since high school. And as an added bonus, SOJA, The Grough, Zion I, and Eligh were added on as supporting acts. It was a hell of a lineup and I wanted to do it justice, so I delivered four fairly different concepts, complete with layout and type suggestions. We ended up pairing the "Dandy Stoner" image with a vintage-looking typeface (literally called "Smoking Typeface", oddly enough) and a blocky, columnar border to resemble the architecture at the Greek Theatre.

PROCESS: Tori kelly

concepts

The initial thumbnail for this (top left) started out very loose. Tighter versions of the thumbnail are shown at top center and bottom center.  The final drawing (upper right) was done in ballpoint pen on Rives BFK paper, with the coloring and text added digitally in Adobe Photoshop. Other, unused sketches are shown at bottom (left and right).

PROCESS: The Chainsmokers

The initial goal for this poster was to communicate the energy and hype that the EDM duo, The Chainsmokers, bring to their live shows. Smoke was explored in the thumbnail sketch phase, as were flowers and leaves, considering the show occurred during Spring. The AD, Jess Rogers, and I landed on a colorful and busy tropical theme with a semi-symmetrical layout of hands clutching flowers as if they were cigarettes. The final drawing was done in ballpoint pen on paper; the color and type/layout were done in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, respectively.
