"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"
28 may 2013 GRIZZLY BEAR @ Alcatraz (Milano-Italy)
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 ...
03.03 Now I have to separate color in 3 different bitmap file I'll do it tomorro :)
28.02 not finished yet ... working on colors and silhouettes
working on new silouettes, moon surface and texture :)
02.21 preparing moon surface for illustrator
I CHANGED DIRECTION AND I'M PROCEEDING WORKING ON A NEW IDEA (THUMBNAIL 04) ... THIS IS FIRST RESULT (LOT OF WORK NEEDED YET):
18"X 24" SCREENPRINTED POSTER
I'm not sure about colours and texture style ... I need suggestions!!! :)
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:
other inspiring stuff:
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.
I'll work on a gigposter about the next only concert in Italy of the band ...
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
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 ....
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"
THUMBNAIL SKETCH 03
(I'll not work on this ... too similar to other things I saw)
THUMBNAIL SKETCH NR. 5
I'd like to figure my poster style very close to those below
