Retribution Gospel Choir (concert poster)

Posted on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 in Concert poster, Drawing, Graphic Design, Illustration, Print

Here is another poster that took me several failed concepts to get it right. I really wanted to play off the choir boy image but with a dangerous twist. Like an avenging angel or a spirit seeking justice. Anyway, it turned out pretty nice with great color splashes and dynamic action. This again is a bit of a style departure. It has kind of a comic book cover feel to it, but I think that works for it.

This was a last minute concert poster that came together really fast, after a couple of failed attempts. I’ve been trying for, at least the last 4 or 5 posters, to put a female into one of my posters but they never came out right. Finally with this it worked out (however the character, to some, seems kind of androgynous. thought the intent was female). Despite having to put this together in one night, the more I look at it the more I like it. It’s becoming one of my favorites (I know I say that about almost every new poster, but that’s good right? It means I’m improving with each one).

So I altered my style a bit on this one but it was working so well I just went with it. I guess this would be the minimalist version of my usual illustration style. I couldn’t find a liquid splash that fit into the arch I needed so I ended up finding something similar and drawing it out by hand with pencil (turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself). This quickly goes to the top few of my favorite posters that I’ve done.
