A logo is the most important piece of artwork for a band. A promo pic of the band is also crucial, but I don’t think that is going to happen anytime soon for us… What else could we do?
Well, if we were putting on a show, we would most definitely need a poster. Unfortunately, we’re not performing anytime soon, but because this is a story album, I thought maybe a movie-style poster would be appropriate. Something with action!
I then remembered my buddy Dave from back home. We used to play some rock shows together in Ann Arbor, and he’s also a great artist. As you can see in his work below, he’s no stranger to capturing an epic action scene.
This image isn’t exactly in a classic poster style, but Dave has plenty of experience in that arena. I’ve seen dozens of posters that he’s done for various bands, comedy shows, and other events. As he is a screenprinter, the posters have limited colors, giving them a distinct style like you see below.
I think Dave is going to be perfect, so I sent him an email the other day with some project details, and gave him a couple starter ideas. I’m a pretty accomplished artist myself, so I think my initial sketches are an excellent start. Check out my work.
Dave sounds like he’s in, so let’s see what he comes up with! Meanwhile, check out the stuff on his webpage www.davekloc.com.
