I’m excited to announce that I will be showing new digital prints of recent and past poster/flyer work at Platform Gallery tomorrow! I’ll be sharing wall space with Globe Letterpress's collection of Baltimore soul posters. The five editions of four will be available for purchase. Here’s a link to the Facebook event.
The oldest flyer in the set was for a Dee & the Warlocks and Baklavaa dual album release show at the Golden West in 2012. I was really excited about this show, in turn producing a larger scale, fully-illustrated flyer with hand-lettered text that unwittingly set a stylistic template for my future poster designs. I’m surprised I’d saved its line file all this time- flyer art is something I presume I’ll never print a second edition of- but I wanted to update the black-and-white file to color. I printed different variations for this set, and would have done the same with the ISIS show posters I did in February… but all seven of the color variant files were missing! I had never saved them to my external hard drive, so they must have disappeared when my laptop was stolen a few months ago. I had only one of the many posters we had printed left in my possession, two-times tacked to a wall in the Bell Foundry kitchen. I’m bummed I won’t be able to make nice prints of the other color variants from the lost set, but I was able to scan and re-print this one! I left the tack-holes on the rescanned flyer.
Oh- and Ratscape is this weekend at Hour Haus! Here’s the poster I designed in its largest scale in glorious full-gloss in the window of the venue….
Today! Come to Platform Gallery for the opening reception of Starcrossed: The Art of Baltimore Promotion. 7-10. 116 W. Mulberry Street.
