Why? gig poster

I’ve had this idea for a gig poster knocking around for a while. It’s for one of my favourite bands, Why? – who we saw last week. Unfortunately I didn’t get round to starting it before the show, or I might have given it to the promoter to use (Josh did this on their last tour and got his poster signed by the band!). But anyway it’s done now and I’m pretty happy with it – it’s just how I pictured it in my head.

Why? poster

The image idea came from these lyrics from the song Gemini (Birthday Song) (Spotify link)

When we’re on different sides of the globe
I thought we’d keep our veins tangled
like a pair of mic cables
And if there ain’t enough slack to reach
we’d solder them together
‘Cross oceans they’d stretch…

  1. Love the representation of those lyrics. Also, love the colour scheme and overall feel of the poster. Well done!

    p.s. your "(not super short but still) short" custom domain is the best.

  2. So great!! WHY? are one of my favourite bands too. I really love the way you incorporated that song into the image, I recognised it without reading the rest of the entry :-)
