We always enjoy being able to create a design series for a client, and one of our favorites is the recent run of tour posters for The National.  The latest addition is for the band’s European tour that wrapped up this week.

In keeping with the theme of aerial travel scenes and the band’s trip across the pond, this poster depicts a container ship docking at port with a few fun details included.

The poster is an A2* (23.4″ x 16.5″) three color screen print on French Pop-Tone Whip Cream stock and has an artist edition of 100.  Check out our initial sketch, closeup photos of the print, and a brand new process video below.  The poster is now available in the DKNG store.

*A2 (23.4″ x 16.5″) is a standard European print size. Please note that standard U.S. frame sizes may require a custom mat to accommodate.

Amazing work! And strange, as I just randomly stumbled upon this and I’ve been making tons of these kinds of top down/side view illustrations in illustrator of ships and boats for a technical presentation in my engineering class these last couple weeks. I’m totally new to illustrator, so this was really inspirational to watch!

What I love most about this piece, is the amount of depth it has. It seriously doesn’t feel 2D, more like 2.5D

Some great talent here.

I can’t seem to find this in your store. Will it be available again in the near future?

Thanks for the reply Dan. Sad to hear, but I will definitely look at those 3rd parties. So I’m guessing that there’s no possibility to buy the digital version as well? ;)
