Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, and Cobain : “27 Club” Art Print

January 25th, 2012 // Posted by Dan in Art Print, Blog, Design, DKNG Work, Illustration

Blunt Graffix in Oregon invited us to be a participating artist in their upcoming group show “Dead Rockstars: A Tribute to the Mortal Gods of Sound“. We decided to explore the 27 Club, a meme regarding popular musicians who all died at the age of 27. What sparked the idea was the recent death of singer Amy Winehouse, the newest member to the 27 Club. After much thought we decided upon the four most legendary members; Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain.

Coincidentally, Nathan and I are both 27. Let’s hope the Mayan’s are wrong, because we already feel a bit weird for choosing such a dark and ironically appropriate theme.

Each print is a mini 4.625″ x 5.375″ four color screen print with an edition of 200. They will be sold as a set which comes in a nifty jewel case that also displays a print of your choice upright in a desktop frame (See below).

Blunt Graffix’s show will begin on February 2 and our allotment of prints will be available in our online store most likely in mid to late February. Below are some shots of the entire set with the jewel case along with close up images of the actual prints.

Wow this is really amazing work. Love the simplicity of the portraits. I do portraits of musicians as well in Illustrator, and have completed one of Kurt and Jimi as well as some other iconic musicians like John Lennon and Jeff Buckley. Let me know if you need more work for the show.

These are really great, they remind me a lot of Stanley Chow’s illustration style.
