Another year, another triptych. I was very happy to get the call again from the String Cheese Incident to do a special print for their big New Years Eve blast in Broomfield, CO. I created a triptych last year for the band that turned out to be successful and we decided to go the same route. Last years theme was “Spirit Animals” and this years was more of a “Winter Wonderland”.
The band has a lot of imagery such as jellyfish & hoola hooper but I thought that the peacock which they use a lot would be a good mix and contrast with the somewhat overly snow white environment. I wanted to incorporate more of a cosmic vibe much like the Oakland poster I did for them last year, as their live performance is known for having a crazy light show and visuals.
Pretty ladies & birds.
Like last year I went out to Boulder to meet up with the printer, Good Thoughts Printing, who did an awesome job. This thing was a beast consisting of 9 colors with tons of overlays and complicated dot patterns. I think before today the most colors I’ve ever had to prep for a print has been 6 but Ray & the team did a beautiful print job during a very busy time of the year for them, I’m sure.
After a short hang I got down to business of signing the 900+ posters which starts off as a form of working meditation and usually ends in tears and a mangled claw hand.
Ray & the crew at Good Thoughts with the uncut sheet. They did an amazing job.
Each poster is 12′ x 24′, combining for a triptych total of 36′ x 24′ and is in a print run of 300. All numbered copies are being sold by the band the nights of the show and I have my own personal copies that will be signed & AP (Artist Print) available Monday, January 2, 2015 @ Noon (PST).
There will be an extremely limited amount of “UNCUT” sheets of the triptych available in about a week,… JANUARY 12th, 2015 so check back if you are interested.
There is an extremely limited run of B&W’s available and are exclusively available for those w/ children interested in coloring… Not for Collectors to swap. They are FREE upon request AFTER ordering a copy of the SCI NYE 14′ triptych with the idea that they will be colored and an image of the final “Kiddie variant” will be sent back to be used for the COLORING NOOK. See examples here
Those requesting will receive 1 B&W of the 3 prints at RANDOM. Just add a note when ordering or send me a email.
