311 Reno, NV Posters

311 just kicked off their Endless Summer tour and we’re excited to share our poster for the first stop of the tour in Reno, Nevada. We were inspired by the summer surf van vibes of the tour and created an illustration of our favorite surf-mobile along with a kook-stack of boards on the roof for all five band members. 

The poster is a 24” x 18” three color screen print on 100 lb Classic Crest Cream paper, and a variant edition of 10pt rainbow foil. We produced four separate color variations in total, with two exclusive to the DKNG store. Check out our initial concept sketch below along with close up photos of the finished prints, and a time-lapse video documenting our process of designing the poster. The 311 posters will be available Tuesday, July 24th, at 10am PST in the DKNG store. Very limited quantities available.

When Adobe launched Illustrator CC with its new ability to zoom in to your composition further than ever before, they commissioned us to create a hyper detailed illustration to demonstrate the new feature. That illustration of an astronaut inside his futuristic cockpit continues to make appearances in various Adobe tutorials including the current Illustrator launch screen.

Herbie Hancock Austin City Limits Poster

A giant of the jazz world and genre-bending pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock, just performed at ACL Live in Austin, TX, and we were honored to create a poster for the show. We were inspired by the intergalactic vibe of Herbie’s early work, as well as the setting of the venue in Texas hill country.

The poster is a four-color 18” x 24” screen print on 100 lb. Classic Crest Cream paper, with a limited edition of 300 prints. Check out our initial sketch of the poster below, along with close-up photos of the finished prints, as well as a video documenting our process of designing the poster.

Polar Bears Art Print Benefiting NRDC

In the spirit of holiday giving and protecting our planet, we’re excited to announce our new Polar Bears art print benefiting the National Resources Defense Council. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the print will be donated to NRDC, which works to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. NRDC is the nation's most effective environmental action group, combining the power of more than two million members and online activists with the expertise of some 500 scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water, and the wild.

The print itself is an 11” x 14” two-color screen print using two split-fountains on 100lb off-white recycled paper. The print is a timed edition which ends at 11:59pm on Sunday, November 27. The number of prints that sell in that time period will dictate the edition size of the print. All prints will be signed and numbered by DKNG. For orders made within the United States, every effort will be made for the prints to ship and arrive prior to Christmas, pending the final edition size. Please keep in mind orders shipped outside the United States will take longer to deliver, but should arrive by January 2017. Check out our initial sketch and process video of the print being designed below.
