We are very excited to announce our third poster design created for Explosions In The Sky. The 24″x18″ two color screen print has an edition of 130 and will be available in our online store starting June 28th, the day after the show. We have a very limited allotment of prints so be sure to act fast on this one.

Also, we will be releasing an art print version of the poster sometime next month. Below are some close up shots of the finished print along with our original sketch.

What technique do you guys use to create the textured halftones? Mine never come out so crisp and fluid.

Beautiful as always. I’ve purchased a bunch of Explosions in the Sky albums due to your work.

What do you guys mean when you say 2 colors? I see white, yellow, and violet(/brown?) in this poster.

The paper color is white, then we print orange ink then a dark purple ink, making this a two color (ink) poster.

Gorgeous as always. Are you able to release this design as a desktop background?

Dan says:

It will first be released as an art print most likely by next month and then after that, a desktop background.

I take it the EITS copies of this have sold out? I only saw the art print in the store.

Yes the poster has sold out. It looks like there is literally only a few art prints left in the store as well.

I see your process videos – with sketch / vector / coloring in AI – but then the halftoning in the final product? how does it go from flat vectors to the tonality in the halftoning. ESP in the two color jobs – the corvette and this one.. I’m building a poster now 2 color and would love to try this (mine is blue and yellow).

We halftone as a final step in photoshop when exporting the files for the printer. You can use vector shapes and smooth rastered imagery in your process the entire time you work. It’s only when we separate our colors that we begin to halftone each layer in it’s entirety.

Thx a ton I picked up cs phantasm plugin for ai (half toning) thinking that’s how you do it.
