GRIZZLY BEAR @ Milan May 28

"If I could find peace

If this night bleeds

But I can't help myself

…. But it's calm and it's clear

Collapsed here on the stone

Delivered to this place

A vision dark and cloaked"

GigPoster Concept

Alcatraz is the name of the club ... so I thought about the prison ... a situation from which one can not escape ... about the music, so great and dark ...

18"X 24" SCREENPRINTED POSTER

I'm not sure about colours and texture style ... I need suggestions!!! :)

INSPIRATION:

I love this poster and I'd like to understand how DNKG works on texture; I'd like to use textures like these and give a nocturnal aspect to the poster:

FIRST STEP IN ILLUSTRATOR WITH MY PROJECT:

I decide to work on my thumbnail sketch n°5.

I'm not sure about font and color style ... I don't like moon suface.

1. Research

I'll work on a gigposter about the next only concert in Italy of the band ...

I love their sound ... it is psychedelic popfolk rock? and experimental?

I love the difficulty of finding a definition for this music ... and I especially like the ability to harmonize their voices as if they were a single ... really inspiring ...

2. Research Part II

is really difficult to find a way they love to look like ... elements of the band are very eclectic and different ... this is also noticeable in the album cover ... but I think there is always something holy and oneiric in their graphics, music and video

 

3. Start sketching

THUMBNAIL 01

Ok here my first thumbnail project

I was thinking about a special night with a big moon growing on Milan by the music of the grizzly bear in the background but then I thought to make it more dreamlike ... and so I thought to insert the sea and just the skyline of Milan overturned under ....

THUMBNAIL02

I'm working on a second idea ... a hotel during night  ... just a shape of a man really small ... .... the corridor as a labirinth ... a really dark atmosphere ... I like the idea of working on the floor texture overlaying it on walls and ceiling ...

INSPIRED BY SONG LYRICS:

"And that light through the smoke
And those countless empty days
And I dizzy when I woke
And I live to see your face
And I hate to see you go
But I know no other way
Than straight on out the door

And I can't help myself
And I can't help myself
And I can't help myself"
