Hot Water Music, Leeds UK gigposter

I can't keep these things under my hat for too long, so here we are.

Hot Water Music have such strong and instantly recognisable album artwork that my immediate response was to try to capture some of the feel of the excellent painted work of Scott Sinclair, using already established visual language that fans of the band will pick up on; elements such as the sombre, angular figure, the vines, the birds, and the Russian dolls, etc.

Hopefully I've captured the feel of the band's artwork but kept everything within the realms of my own style.

This will be available to buy from the gig on Tuesday night, as well as from me via mailorder afterwards. I'll update with some pics of the final printed posters as soon as I have them in my grubby mitts...

I've seen heroic falls, busted lips from microphone brawls

It's been a very busy past couple of weeks, mostly with work that's not quite fit to show yet.

I also just came back from a trip to Lisbon, Portugal.  Though the purpose was to celebrate the final, free days of a friend who is getting married, the trip also just happened to coincide with the world-renowned Sardine Festival.  Needless to say - good beer, good sardines, good times.

Thankfully, my recovery was swift enough to allow me to finish the poster design for Hot Water Music, which has now been sent off to print.  See below for a sneaky peaky...

I'm also involved in putting the Leeds gig on, which is a-happening on Tuesday the 22nd June.  If you're looking forward to going and don't have a ticket - MOVE FAST, they're very nearly all gone.  Details here:

This promises to be an awesome night. My silkscreen poster will, of course, be on sale directly from the gig and via mailorder from myself afterwards... Watch this space for the full poster reveal soon.
