Of Montreal Sasquatch! 09 Poster

May 6, 2009

So finally I made the poster. I had a rough idea of what I wanted to do, I knew I wanted a Sasquatch, but I didn’t know how to relate it to Of Montreal. I made a few sketches, but I wasn’t happy with it. Here’s one example, I like the composition and the type, but it doesn’t have any references to the band.

So later on I thought it would be cool to make a reference to the actual Montreal, even though the band is from Georgia. So I drew Sasquatch with a Hockey Jersey. I liked the drawing but the composition wasn’t working on the poster format.

Finally I came up with another sketch, this time I think works with the poster format and also touches on my hockey concept. Here is the sketch.

 And here is the final version with color. Just two colors, it’s easier and I think it works well with the illo. I added some maple leaves in the back, just to give it more balance, although I like white space, it was just too much. So here it is.

As soon as I find my camera, I will post some pictures of the printing, which has been a pain. Bye for now.

ps. I realized that I put the 29th instead of 24th just in time and corrected the file just before burning the screen! pheew! so the final posters will be fine.
