to all the bands i've made posters for before
Being a musician and in bands most of my life means I've made posters for those bands for most of life. There are countless 100's maybe even 1,000 I've made throughout the years and they make for an interesting study in the development of the technology of print media. From cutting with actual scissors and pasting with real glue to hand writing the text and OOPS you made a mistake again at the very end of the page and you have to start all over and oh my GOD when will this be done?! It's also an interesting study in personal frustration. All those bumps along the way have helped develop my skills and eyes. Plus band promo posters are just a ton of fun. They can develop the brand identity of the performer or they can be their own statement or performance, if you will, that has little if anything to do with the band they're promoting. Here are some highlights and personal favorites. I wish I had remembered to take more off the walls after the gig was done. That was before flash drives and CDRs and even 3.5" floppy discs.
