Mumford & Sons Colorado Poster

Mumford & Sons just played Greenwood Village, Colorado, and we took inspiration from the Colorado mountains for the official poster for the show. In addition to the idyllic location, we also wanted to capture the effortless power of the band’s sound, through a larger than life bison carved into the mountainside.

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print on French Kraft-Tone Manila 100 lb cover stock, with a limited artist edition of 75 prints. Check out close up photos of the poster below along with our initial concept sketch, and a video documenting our design process. The Mumford & Sons Colorado poster will be available Friday, August 16th, at 7am PST in the DKNG Store.

USPS Military Working Dogs Postage Stamps

Photo Credit: Journey Group

It’s truly an honor to have been asked by the U.S. Postal Service to design and illustrate a set of postage stamps, and we’re thrilled that our Military Working Dogs stamps are out in the world as of their first day of issue - August 1, 2019. We had the pleasure of working with Greg Breeding and his team at Journey Group to bring these stamps to life. They feature four highly skilled breeds of working dogs: German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, Belgian Malinois, and Dutch Shepherd. Some of these breeds may be more common than others, but we’ve come to learn that dogs within each breed are important partners and companions to both members of the military, and police officers who work with these animals everyday. The outpouring of recognition and gratitude from these service members, now having a stamp to represent their partners, has been moving and humbling.

The stamps themselves include a gold metallic ink, and are available in books of 20, and for a limited time you can also purchase related memorabilia from USPS including first day of issue postmarked envelopes. The stamps also appeared in the postal services official magazine and catalog, USA Philatelic. You can find that article below, along with images of the stamps, including some of our initial concept sketches. We’ll also be attending the release ceremony for the stamps at the San Diego branch of USPS on August 30, 2019. Stay tuned for more details.

Dave Matthews Band Bristow, VA Poster

For our latest poster for Dave Matthews Band for a show in Bristow, VA, some fitting inspiration seemed to be the band’s song "Virginia in the Rain”. We were inspired by the lyrics Come on let’s go there, let’s jump right in, We will rope swing to river swim, Virginia naked in the rain. Based on that sentiment, we created a fantastical world for a couple to swim, complete with their very own rope swing.

The poster is an 18” x 24” four-color screen print on Cougar Natural 100 lb cover stock. Check out a few close-up photos of the finished prints below, along with our initial concept sketch, and a video covering our design process. The Dave Matthews Band Bristow, VA poster is available in a very limited artist edition of 60 prints in the DKNG Store. Due to the limited nature, the sale is restricted to only one print per customer, and once the poster sells out it will not be available in the future. The Bristow poster goes on sale at 9am PST on Friday, July 26.

Dave Matthews Band Boston, MA Poster

As Dave Matthews Band wraps up another year of touring, we were excited to take on another gig poster for the band, this time for their show in Boston, Massachusetts. We were inspired by a cold winter night on the Boston Harbor, lit by the famous Boston Light lighthouse, and we contained the whole scene in a classic camping lantern, complete with moths buzzing around the flame.  

The poster is an 18” x 24” three-color screen print on Neenah Paper Patriot Blue 100 lb cover stock. Check out a few close-up photos of the finished prints below, along with our initial concept sketch, and a video covering our design process.

Mighty Ducks of Anaheim Anniversary Poster

It’s not often that the gig poster and sports worlds collide, so we were excited to take on a project for the Anaheim Ducks to commemorate their 25th season. The 10 poster series includes lots of great artists and for our contribution, we were asked to pay tribute to the team's ’03-’06 era purple & black jerseys. 

The 16” x 20” giclee posters are part of a limited run of 100 numbered prints, with all proceeds benefiting local Anaheim non-profits. Available at the Honda Center while supplies last, 20 of the posters will be signed by Ducks players. Check out the artwork above as well as our initial concept sketch below.

Grand Canyon at Night National Park Poster

We’re excited to announce the followup to our original Grand Canyon National Park poster as part of the Fifty-Nine Parks poster series celebrating all of America’s National Parks. The Grand Canyon provides all kinds of experiences based on the time of day, so for this poster we attempted to capture the dusk through nightfall atmosphere at the park, capturing both the last moments of sun casting light on the red cliff faces, while also seeing the stars and Milky Way come into view at this epic stargazing location. The park’s wildlife also makes appearances at night, including the mountain lion pictured in this illustration. 

The poster is an 18” x 24” five color screen print on 100 lb. French Construction Pure White paper and is part of an open edition. Check out our initial sketch of the poster below as well as close-up photos of the finished print. The Grand Canyon at Night National Park poster is now available in the DKNG Store.

The National Los Angeles, CA Posters

We’re excited to share our latest posters for The National, for their recent pair of shows at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Our work for The National over the years has focused on aerial views of various locations, and for their stop in LA, we knew we had to illustrate a labyrinth of freeways. For the two nights of shows, we created a diptych with the maze of ramps and streets spanning both posters.

The National posters are 18” x 24” four-color screen prints on 105 lb Stardream Silver cover stock, with a signed and numbered artist edition of 100 prints for each night. We also have a very limited number of uncut 36” x 24” poster sets. The National Los Angeles posters will go on sale at 10am PST on Monday, September 24 in the DKNG Store.
