A few years ago we had the pleasure of spending a few days in Memphis for the Creative Works conference, so we were excited to be invited back for their first ever Skill Camp, to lead a two-day immersive workshop covering our entire poster design and illustration process. It was a bit daunting to plan for a longer format session, but it was a fun challenge and even more fun to see the participants’ projects come to life over the course of the two days. We were blown away by the work that came out of the workshop and are thrilled to share some of the projects that were created here on the blog. Thanks to Josh and all of our students for making this a truly unforgettable and incredibly rewarding trip!
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. The Dave Matthews Band Boston, MA 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.

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.
