CANADIAN RECORDING ARTISTS, POST STAMPS
For 2013, Canada Post put out a series of stamps on famous Canadian rock bands, Rush, The Guess Who, The Tragically Hip and Beau Dommage. The series was issued on July 19th 2013 – package includes 1 day of issue envelope, 1 pack of 10 stamps, 1 post card and a souvenir sheet, for each of the bands. Official obliteration stamps were developed for each band, inspired either by their existing brand or Canadian province of origin.
At earlier stages of the project, custom illustrated portraits were created for each bands, however, due to the fact that members had changed since the creation of the bands, we quickly ran into "political" issues and were asked to refrain from using the illustrations, and use only the bands logos. Deceiving as it could be at the time, the project was still a very enriching experience fom beginning to end, and the results were very well received by the Canadian public.
