So Im going to this concert on March 1st and i thought it would be a great idea to make the poster for this class about the two bands. Im an illustrator and designer and usually draw my posters from scratch and for this class i want to combine both drawing and computer elements together, either draw it then do textures in illustrator or photoshop, or draw it all as a vector art piece.

I keep imagining the poster being a birthed animal of some sort, in a couple of my sketches theres bugs with half the body as a skull holding a bleeding rose, or a deer holding a dead red tail hawk in his mouth- this poster im imagining the antlers being covered in snow since we just had a huge snowstorm in boston, probably in dark background with silver inks. the music to me sounds sad and creepy from the singer so i always imagine creepy strange things when i listen to their music, same with man man so i wanted to take this poster on that route.
