Medicine Boy Poster

  • I was recently asked by Medicine Boy to take part in an exhibition to promote their upcoming album 'Kinda Like Electricity'. They asked a bunch of artists to each create a poster based on one of the songs off the album and include specific lyrics on the poster.

    I was given the first track, 'The Back of My Eyes' and the lyrics 'A burning building at the back of my eyes'.
  • Initial sketchbook concepts - the rough in the bottom right became the basis for the poster
  • Development sketches, trying different layouts / text & ideas
  • Final sketch process
  • Colour rough as a guide
  • Final process
  • At this point I tried out a bunch of different colour schemes before settling on the final below
