Satan's Lounge Band
Limited Edition Illustrated Poster
In 2011, while in New York City for their famed "Big 4" concert at Yankee Stadium, thrash-metal icons Anthrax performed a secret show at the Best Buy Theater under the guise of their other moniker, Satan's Lounge Band.

To commemorate the show, I created a limited edition poster to serve as a giveaway to the lucky fans who witnessed the stellar performance. Building on the "lounge band" concept, I decided to illustrate the members of Anthrax in a way that would feel like a light-hearted, 50's/60's era lounge act while maintaining their reputation for being thrash metal icons.

Each band member started as a hand drawing, which was then scanned and taken into Adobe Illustrator. Using simple, colored shapes and no rendering or shading, they took on a life of there own as they rocked out in the depths of hell, surrounded by an army of equally appropriate demons and hell-spawns.
