The Black Keys

My silkscreened poster for Ohio 2-piece The Black Keys.  This was for their Liverpool, UK gig on 6th Nov 2010.

The shape of the landmass on which the buildings are sitting is the shape of the state of Ohio.  The speech bubble says 'Welcome to Akron' and is (roughly) where the city of Akron sits in Ohio.

Akron, where the band hail from, was a boom town in the 1800's and a hotbed of many industries, which is what I've tried to capture in the design.

This was available from the gig but can now also be purchased from my online store:
