TRPS (The Rock Poster Society) is throwing their big annual “Festival of Rock Posters” event, this year at the Hall of Flowers / SF County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park. This year has probably one of the best lineups I have seen of artists old-school & new including legends Jim Pollock & Mark Arminiski who are coming from the East Coast. I will be in the mix showcasing some new & rare posters. This one is not to be missed.

Van Morrison 2-nights at the SFJazz Center poster….

vanm_leunig_new

Van Morrison is a legend & cultural icon so it was such a real honor to get the nod to do a poster for his 2-night run at the SFJazz Center in San Francisco this week. His songs you know without even realizing you know them, if that makes sense. “Gloria”… “Moondance” …”Brown Eyed Girl”…. “Wild Night Is Calling”…. “Have I Told You Lately I Love You”,.. all classics.

I knew I couldn’t go for my usual trippy-dippy psychedelic design style due to the audience this was for and needed something that felt more classic. Though SF does not have the most robust Autumn colors, I wanted to represent Fall as well as the uniqueness of the venue, the SFJazz Center. My initial concept had the silhouette of Morrison’s in his iconic hat & coat walking the streets of SF but it felt too busy and scrapped it for the simple guitar with shamrock vines design. I also know Van Morrison is a multi-talented musician utilizing a number of instruments during his shows (sax, guitar, piano, harmonica, etc..) and I thought the mix of a few would fit nicely.
