The Shins

I'v been meaning to take this class for a long time and I'm finally getting around to it. 

For my class project I chose the band "The Shins". It's my wife's favorite band and I figured it would be a good opportunity to not only push my design / illustration skills. But also a great opportunity to create something for my wife. 

After doing some research on the band, I found out that they are originally from New Mexico. Reading this the first image that popped into my mind was a desert. I looked a bit more into any current shows that the band has coming up and it looks like they are playing in another desert like town called "Las Vegas"! Ever heard of it? Yeah, me neither.

02) I followed this with a quick digital render just to get the feeling / tones down. For now it's all greyscale.
