Client: Popload Gig | Date: OCT 2011
For every show they produce, Popload Gig invites an artist to design a limited edition screen printed poster to be sold at the venues during the shows. I was thrilled to be invited to create the poster of one of my favorite bands: THE KILLS. A black beetle fashioned with golden leopard pattern and that marvellous black Hofner. I really couldn't ask for more... Or could I?...
Yes, as a matter of fact, I could. So I had the pleasure of working for the first time with Rogério Maciel
, head of Estúdio Elástico
and a master of the screen print craft. In between pots and pans
, together we spent a great time at his studio, talking about art, the beauty of screen printing and mixing colors, frying our little brains
in search for a perfect match between the petroleum dark gray and an aged metallic gold for our poster. Baby says
it's all about a few drops of yellow... Rogério is very meticulous and a perfectionist when it comes to details. And the proof was a set of stunning prints.
So, as the last day of magic
came to an end, I left the posters behind to dry as I waved the last goodbye
. All I had to do now was head back home and get ready for The Kills.
