This was such a fun poster to make for local musician, Ché Aimee Dorval. I started with watercolour and ink then did the pink outlining and lettering on my tablet. It’s been rainy in Vancouver and I wanted to make something bright out of the everyday (I was inspired by the hedges that populate pretty much every neighbourhood).
I have just finished the poster for J’s tour kick off, which features a colour monster and some watery word balloons. Under a serious time crunch I probably borrowed a little more inspiration than I would have liked from other show posters that I’ve seen- it feels vaguely familiar- but it was fun to make. It was a great opportunity to play with simple shape filled with a more carefully drawn pattern.
I’ve also been using gift giving as an opportunity to play with watercolour and ideas. I made some cards for co workers, finally giving myself a good reason to use rainbow washes in lettering. I also made my dad’s father’s day gift out of a frame I found at the Sally Anne’s, which turned out to be the perfect fit for some water colour post cards.
So, here’s the poster for all these bands! If you’re in Vancouver, come join!
