Vintage Cats.

Los Angeles based rock act Lysolgang contacted me for another show poster and I was excited to work on another project with the band.

After being somewhat swamped with corporate work it was nice to take a breather and let my creative side take over.

They were playing Cheetahs and I already knew exactly where I was going with this.  I wanted to take it back and make it sort of a retro poster feel... something you may have been handed on the street in the early 80s.

I drew the cheetah and female body in illustrator and brought the vector image into photoshop for final touched.  After that I looked through my  texture library for distressed film photos to place on top and work some magic.  Added a few half tone layers... worked some more magic and poof... the 11x17 print was born (you can't really see the outside white edge on this).

Soundtrack while creating... Röyksopp, Adele and VAST.
