Ween is back in San Francisco. New poster.
Ween is my favorite band of all time. I’ve been obsessed with them since early high school and have been lucky to work with over the years on a couple projects and was deeply saddened when they broke up. Almost 10 years ago to the date I did my first screenprinted poster for them for a San Francisco show (The Independent – 2006′). The boys are back on tour and as with a lot of things in life, things come back around. On the 10th Anniversary of Scraped Knee I had the privilege to do a poster for their 2 days of shows this week in SF.
The print is a promoter print commissioned by folks at APE/Bill Graham and given to the band, and folks back stage & involved with the show.
I wanted to try and do something for true-Ween fans, cramming as many references into the print as I could without it getting ridiculous. Most of the newer prints focus on “The Boognish” which is cool but I wanted this to stand out. I’d be interested to see if people can get all the subtle & not so subtle nods to the bands imagery, lyrics, album art, etc.
The final print is a 6-color (18′ x 24) printed by the badasses at Monolith Press and I will have a small run of 40 Artist Prints (signed/AP) available on Tues, October 18th @ 11AM (PST).
