    So thrilled to have been asked to do a Polaris Music Prize Slaight Heritage Poster and especially excited to draw Joni Mitchell’s unique face and to delve into an album that is so iconic. I tried to portray the melancholy atmosphere of Blue but still maintain her strength and joy of life as she reflects on her past in such an honest and bare way. Thanks to the Office of Gilbert Li!

My first silk screen! So thrilled to have been asked to do a Polaris Music Prize Slaight Heritage Poster and especially excited to draw Joni Mitchell’s unique face and to delve into an album that is so iconic. I hope I did it justice, trying to portray the melancholy atmosphere of Blue but still maintain her strength and joy of life as she reflects on her past in such an honest and bare way.
The Polaris Music Prize is a not-for-profit organization that annually honours and rewards Canadian music artists who produce albums of distinction. A select panel of music critics judge and award the Prize without regard to musical genre or commercial popularity. This is one of the four posters for the Slaight Family Heritage Prize. I believe there are only 50 of each of these 18×24” silk screen posters for sale at Polaris Music Prize (click on the link for Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize Posters) so grab them while you can.
Thanks to the Polaris Prize and the Office of Gilbert Li for such a wonderful gig and Kid Icarus for the great printing job!
