Keep it simple… stoopid!

The first step was sketching an idea. And I very much like the idea of the roots of the trees turning into octopus legs. I was just playing with ideas that seemed cool, looking for inspiration in different places. What was important to me was that it wasn’t so...

Greenhouse

What to say about this project. When we first started even talking about this project I was not worried about it, I thought I would be able to be so creative and not have to worry about a thing. I thought about what I wanted to create and what kind of music I wanted....

Ash Wednesday

To start I super enjoyed this project. I went in sketching knowing exactly what I wanted to do because since I the watch project I had been thinking about what I wanted to do. The faceless people with snakes. I think snakes are super interesting and they’re...

The Monsters Band

First Sketches These were the first ideas I have after the brainstorm with words. I had the idea of creating a collage with different musical objects and creatures or animals with them. After making some dragons and other animals, I had the idea to do monsters because...

ZEPHYR – Cool as a Breeze

Sketching a gig poster was new. I felt like I needed to sketch a whole concept at once. Looking back I realize the importance of sketching more. This really helps with the development of ideas. That and word trees help to come up with abstract ideas that can be put...

Drip, Drip, 2309

This was a very exciting project. Gig posters are so expressive and open that I had a great time thinking outside of the box to create something unique and intriguing. I started with allowing myself to get bored. From there I did a bunch of word association to get my...

A Darker Shade of Pink

This is the process of creating a gig poster for a local event.  The difficulty of this project was the creativity, not the actual creation of the project.  Getting in a creative mindset is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, especially since I have been...

Anti Bad Vibe Shield

For this project I wanted to focus be simple in the composition and detailed in the illustration. The first thing I had to do was deciding what kind of music the band was to play, since that will determine the direction of the project and the feeling i would give to...

Into the Eye

Gig Posters are pretty cool because they are unique to each city. Bands, Musicians and Artists would contract out to local artists/designers to design a special poster just for the one night they were in town. These posters would then be blanketed around town. The...

Muted Minds

Creating a gig poster for an imaginary band really intrigued me. Making up my band wasn’t too hard, making sure my band conveyed what I wanted it to was a little more. I had originally planned to add a lot more but I guess this project deadline hit me too quick...

Jamming Out With White Noise

The Draft Stage One of the important things that I had to do was figure out the direction that I wanted to go with as I was creating my Gig Poster. I had an image in my mind of a lightning bold striking a valley or a mountain and so I began putting up some concept...

The Saskatunes & the Moosentaur

When given the task of creating a gig poster, I first decided on the name of a fictitious band to create the poster for: The Saskatunes, a very relaxed, indie folk-type band. This is a name devised by me and some friends I worked at scout camp with, which set the...

OXIDIZED

The Process of Making a Gig Poster Wow, let’s just say that I underestimated this project. I think it has taken more of my emotions than any other project has, but the results were worth it.  As you guys already know from my past projects I begin everything with...

SPLIT

My core objectives in creating this gig poster was to translate a genre of music, and a feeling into a visual. I also wanted to learn new techniques in making flat objects appear realistic, and creating a style that is unique.   SKETCHES:  My first round of sketches...

Dwelling on Details

For this project, I tried to use all of my prior knowledge and experience in Adobe Illustrator to create a gig poster for an imaginary band of my own making. There were several steps to this process and many things were changed, edited and completely taken out in...

Heroes For Heroes

Here is my finished poster for “Heroes for Heroes”. The style of music that this band plays is a lot like Blink 182’s style of music. I wanted this poster to be as simple as possible while keeping it on the strange side. Let me take you through the...

Dueling Pianos

The past two weeks was like a roller coaster. I jumped from idea to idea. The main idea was to get something really weird, but cool. I originally came up with the idea to do this battle of peasants vs royalty. The sketches that I drew reflected that.     In the...

Train Wreck

For my band name, I had a bunch of people write out words and I pieced them together! It ended up becoming Aquatic Trains. I wanted this band to be sort of pop punk, so I started sketching up some ideas that would match that. I decided to try to become as creative as...
