The Growlers Texas Tour poster… 2017
Supporting their new album City Club, surf-rock band The Growlers have planned an extensive Spring tour and recently reached out for me to do a print for their 5-city Texas run the end of the month. I worked with them during their previous tour last year for a NYC poster and have made it a point to make all my work for them completely different, … trying out different styles & themes.
I have always loved the imagery and crazy colorfulness of the Pulikali Tiger dancers in Southern India. Every Sept. during the Onam Harvest Festival in Kerala, hundreds of men paint up their bellies and do the “dance of the tigers”. It’s awesome. When I was in India I tried to make it to the Fest but unfortunately was in Kerala a week too early. I have always wanted to try and work this concept into a poster design and thought this run with the Growlers would be a perfect opportunity to make something super tripped out and weird.
The print is a 5-color screenprint (18′ x 24′) with a run of 100 and will be available starting Feb. 22nd on tour w/ the band. I will have a small Artist Edition run available after the last Texas date on Tuesday, Feb. 28th. There will also be a very small run of 7 super trippy “lava foil” variants available. Hot fire baby!!!
