Future Hendrix hits up Hartford, CT…. gigposter
I don’t tend to do a lot of hip-hop stuff these days mainly because it’s not really a “poster” scene, plus most bands or promoters I’ve come across seem to want the same old generic hip-hop imagery….. graffiti-walls, mics, bling, etc. When I got the call from Live Nation to do a promoter print for Future’s show in Hartford, CT I was familiar with a little bit of his work but upon finding out his deep interest in Jimi Hendrix I knew it was a gig I could work with. Hendrix’s influence goes so deep that he now goes by Future Hendrix and named his latest album, Hndrxx.
I am no stranger to 60’s psychedelic posters and took inspiration for this concept from some of the color schemes of old Jimi Hendrix posters as well as some of the amazing layouts by 60’s poster artists Bonnie Maclean & Randy Tuten. To keep the idea hiphop and make the whole thing sing, we worked in some Gold, adding some metallic ink into the mix.
The print is a 5-color screenprint (18′ x 24′) printed by the kickass folks at The Half & Half with a run of 50 for the promoter/venue, and I will have available a small run of 25 Artist Prints (signed/Numbered) starting May 24th @ 11am (PST).
