I'm torn on the city being reflected on the hood, or windshield. I just
have a thing for it being upside down.

FEBRUARY 13th

The poster I'm creating is for a past show – one that I fully intended on attending, but unforunately, missed. So, with my sad unused ticket in hand, I'm going to be making a poster for last November's Matthew Dear & Light Asylum show at DC's U st Music Hall.

My concept is heavily based on Matthew Dear's 'Black City', so a little background on him (from Wikipedia

Matthew Dear (born April 4, 1979, Kingsville, Texas, United States) is an American music producer, DJ and electronic avant-pop artist. Texas-born Dear moved to Michigan as a teenager, where he was inspired by the sound of Detroit Techno. Dear met Sam Valenti IV at a party while attending the University of Michigan, after which the two started the record label, Ghostly International, based on a shared love of electronic music.

Matthew Dear's fourth album, Black City, was released on August 17, 2010. It conceptualizes a futuristic metropolis that never sleeps. Dear describes 'Black City': "Well, there's a kind of timelessness to it in the sense that I don't want things to run on a 24-hour clock. It seems like a city that's always awake, maybe always dialled in electronically, and cannot be turned off. It's this imaginary weird never-sleeping town. But yeah it's full of lust, and love, and dark shadows."

I'm thinking of sticking with a black cadillac, with a very dark and smokey mood. The first sketch is pretty straight forward, a black car with a city backdrop. My intention is to have the drivers side door open... but I haven't drawn it yet. The second sketch I'm still pondering the placement of the city. I was considering have it reflected in the headlights instead. 

I want to vector this in a very geometric, dark, art deco style. Some examples of the style I'm trying to recreate. Everything will be geometric and grid-based.
