Gig Poster Designs for Minus the Bear / Tim Kasher (Cursive) / AM @ House of Blues Houston

This poster is a collaborative piece with a friend of mine poster veteran Charlie Hardwick. I designed the background for the composition. Charlie is setting the type. I'm pretty excited about this one because I've never worked on a poster for a saddle-creek band before. A funny thing about this poster and why its a crystal. This design was going to be used for a Crystal Castles poster but the the show went south and this project was on such a short time frame we opted to use it with a new color scheme. There's a pretty big difference in groups.

Typically I hand draw out my line work, ink and scan into Illustrator to clean up my lines and color primarily in Photoshop using my Wacom. I'm hoping to learn some new ways to speed things up here soon.

A few variations
