Over the summer we had the opportunity to create a poster for Dave Matthews Band’s stop in West Palm Beach, Florida.  We were thrilled to be invited back for more and we’re excited to announce our new poster for their recent show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The poster is a four color print on Cougar Natural paper and was printed by our friends at The Half and Half.  We were inspired by cold Ontario winters and its wildlife including maple trees and elk.

The full edition size of the print is 575. However, our allotment is much more limited and will be available in our store early next week.  We are also creating a new process video for this poster which provides a glimpse into how we created some of the detailed elements of this print including the hundreds of branches and thousands of leaves.  Our design/illustration reference imagery, original sketch and close up photos of the finished print are below.

Just a heads up, we will be creating an art print version of this poster, which will include additional tweaks and details to make it extra special. We will most likely be releasing that print early next year.

Fantastic, I was lucky enough to go to the Toronto show and pick mine up right away.

Are you considering selling the original sketches as companion pieces? If so, I am definitely interested in purchasing one.

Thanks, and great works

Unfortunately, they are all sold out. We have a very limited amount available in a Portland gallery, but they are a bit pricey. I believe $100 or more a piece. If you are interested in purchasing one I can put you in touch with the gallery owner.
