The fourth of November? Well ya for this poster it is the forth.
Los Angeles based rock act Lysolgang asked me to design their poster for their upcoming record release...
They were going to use the whole Guy Fawkes theme since the show was originally set for November the 5th.
After some illustration I brought the original concept into Illustrator and started laying out the basic shapes I was going to be working with. After a few hours I had the basic concept down and now it came time for soft touches. I brought the vector shape into Photoshop and set to work.
Using my soft brushes I have developed over the last few years and my trusty Wacom tablet(amazing) I painted each line individually until I had a black and white image I was proud of...
The next step was adding color, texture and finally type of the entire time (properly set of course). I used a few different textures including a broken camera lens, film, and sand to give the image a dirties look. Using were layered effect multiply, soft light and color burn.
Last but now least was the type and logo... that is pretty self explanatory so I won't waste your time... All images on the poster are originals including the Lysolgang logo I had worked on for their record.
