Cheerleader - student project

This is an update to my first concept and it still has a long way to come, but I just wanted to lay down some of the graphics. I still want to put a lot of texture in the background and the text. I wasn't sure how I wanted to handle the colors on the background, but I have found that I really like the white. I think it has a Field Notebook feeling to it. Right now I have my original sketch of the mason jar as a stand in, and I want it to stay sketchy, but I want to update it.

I wanted to explore the flowers with some color- so I tried 2 and I might take a look at some other options. I like how they look with color- but I think it makes the bottom seem very basic, so I am still working on a solution. If you have any feedback that would be great! Thanks!Cheerleader - image 2 - student project  ---------------------------------

I am doing a poster for a band named Cheerleader. They are friends of mine in the process of getting their name out there, and I love their music! They just took their facebook page and website down while they revamp their stuff/look, so unfortunately I can't post those- but they are an indie pop bandbased out of Philadelphia. They had a lot of shows in Connecticut last summer (where I am) and they played at a bar that recently closed down which was a lot of fun- so I will be using that location. 

Anyway-I am all over the place as far as styles because I LOVE all types of band posters. So i have decided to pursue 2 completely different types of looks, and am hoping that as I develope them more, one will speak to me over the other (and hopefully with some help from your feedback as well).


My sketch

This look is a combination of grungy/sketchy with flat graphics. I was inspired by this Jose Gonzalez poster (mostly for the air, texture and vingnette) and these basic craftsman style/art nouveau flowers. I haven't decided if I want to have leave the flowers as outlines or color them in either warm tones or cool tones.

2. This concept is all graphic-digital looking. Boarderline infographic style/obviously computer based.

As you can see by my inspirations below, I am looking at loud colors and bright graphics with some interesting font combinations.
