Leon Bridges Los Angeles, CA Poster

One of our favorites, Leon Bridges, came through Los Angeles on his current tour and we were happy to create the official poster for his show at the historic Greek Theatre. Leon has a signature, vintage aesthetic that we attempted to capture in the scene of a midcentury California fuel station.

The poster is a 24” x 18” 5-color screen print which includes a split-fountain blend in the sky. It’s printed on French Paper Co. Kraft-Tone Index Off-White 100lb cover stock, with a limited artist edition of 50 prints. Check out close up photos of the print below, along with our initial concept sketch and a process video of the poster’s creation. The Leon Bridges Los Angeles poster will be available in the DKNG Store on Monday, September 17, at 10am PST.

Jack White California Posters

Jack White is currently touring the US in support of his new album, Boarding House Reach, and we were happy to take on the poster duties for three of his California shows. For his first night in San Francisco, we did our take on a classic rusted-out hull of a car, set ablaze with Jack White blue flames. For night two in SF, we were inspired by Jack’s lyrics, combining a leather boot along with three birds lacing it up. Lastly, for Jack’s stop in Bakersfield, we took on a set of traditional locks and keys, with some Jack reference hidden throughout their decorative inlays.

Each poster in the series is an 18” x 24” three-color screen print on Classic Crest Epic Black 100 lb cover stock, with signed and numbered editions of 420 for each of the San Francisco shows, and 291 for the Bakersfield show. Check out our initial sketches below along with closeup photos of each print, as well as process videos for SF Night 2 and Bakersfield. All three Jack White posters go on sale in the DKNG store on Tuesday, August 21, at 9am Pacific Time.

Van Morrison Las Vegas, NV Poster

This past weekend, Van Morrison played two sold out shows at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and as long time fans, we were honored to create the official gig poster for the event. We were inspired by the vintage neon signs that have lined the Las Vegas strip, and created Van’s own custom sign. The entire edition of posters is printed on metallic rainbow foil which gives the neon and lightbulbs in the sign a convincing shimmer when viewed in person. 

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print on 10pt Rainbow Foil with an edition size of 400. Check out our initial concept sketch below along with close up photos of the finished print, and a process video documenting the design and printing of the poster. Thanks to our friends at Monolith Press for the stellar print job. The Van Morrison Las Vegas poster is now available in the DKNG Store.

Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals Live in San Francisco

It’s been seven years since Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals have performed together, and we were honored to create a poster series for their inaugural shows of 2015. The band will be touring throughout the year and kicked off their first four-night run at San Francisco’s historic Fillmore. We were inspired by the animalistic power of the band’s music and chose one animal to represent each night’s show, towering over the bay area’s landscape. 

Each poster is a 12” x 24” five-color screen print on French Speckletone Madero Beach. Check out some close up photos of the finished posters below as well as our initial sketches. We also created a process video for the project complete with a glimpse into the printing process at Monolith Press. These posters are now available in the DKNG Store. We will also be releasing an art print series of each animal illustration in the coming months.
