Above is a sneak peek of the poster I designed for Artcrank LAX, a bike-centric poster show.
I was inspired by the bold, fluorescent rainbow event posters that are often placed randomly around the streets of Los Angeles. Colby Poster Printing has been making those iconic posters since 1946. I hired Colby to silkscreen my gear assembly illustration onto one of their pre-printed, day-glo gradient backgrounds. Yay, color!
Come by, check it out and say hi!
Also, I have been stalking the other artists on twitter and instagram and it looks like there will be some great posters in the show. Check out my partner in crime, Alice's contribution (also flourescent).
