Announcing a 3-Panel poster design for The String Cheese Incident and Conscious Alliance!
The original idea for this piece came from a spot along the Dakota Ridge trail here in Boulder. I’ve been hiking this trail nearly every day for almost 9 years now (wow time flies) and it never ceases to inspire more artwork. I started working on this piece right around the winter solstice and the full-lunar-eclipse, and there was definitely a strange vibe in the air ~
There is a view towards the bottom of the trail that is actually pretty average for the many amazing points along the way… but there is always something about it that intrigues me. Basically it’s a field of tall grass that heads up to the ridge from the neighborhood below. When the wind comes whipping through, it blows the grass and looks like ocean waves. It’s right where the hogbacks meet the plains and there’s a certain energy about it that’s hard to explain… at least in words… perhaps better through the pens 🙂
I am also very excited to work on a poster for SCI. The first time I saw them play was at a free show on the CC campus in ’97. Nobody had really heard of them before, but we thought their name was cool and decided to check it out… they proceeded to blow our minds for the next two hours, and went on to become one of the most successful bands in Colorado history. I’m honored to contribute my artwork for this poster.
Posters will be available at the 1STBANK Center on the nights of the shows. You can donate 10 cans or non-perishable food items per panel, or 25 for all three! You can also donate $10 or $30 instead of food. Donation stations will be setup both inside and out front of the venue, and tickets to the show are not necessary to pick up the posters. Please come on down and support a fantastic cause! To learn more about Conscious Alliance, please visit their website here: ConsciousAlliance.orgBuy Print
