Chris Cornell Tour hits Phoenix, AZ – gigposter
I’ve been an old school Soundgarden fan for a long time and was thrilled to work with them a few years back. Now their lead singer Chris Cornell has been hitting the road to promote his new solo album, Higher Truth and I got the call to do a print for the Phoenix, AZ stop.
Cornell is a badass and the concept had to be just as fitting. Of the bat, Phoenix is a town and is in a part of the country that has a ton of imagery associated with it …rustic dangerous desert environments, Native American history, Kachina dolls, etc. Originally I was headed more in the Native American direction when I remembered that “Dia De Los Muertos” falls right around the date of the show and would be perfect. I tried out a couple classic painted ladies and Day of the Dead skeletons before shifting gears a bit and focusing in on more of a guitar wielding bandito skeleton.
The final poster is a 5-color, (18’x 24′) print printed by the folks at In-House Press and has a print run of 150 which will be available by the band at the show. I will have a small run of signed/AP Artist prints for sale on (Fri) November 6th @ 11AM (PST).
