not to argue with my esteemed collegue from texas but......... BGP requires you turn in 3-4 concepts for approval. from my experience they tend to shoot down "traditional" fillmore ideas. i think alan had gone thru the band first then brought this one to BGP.
either way killer poster.
There are a few now-famous artists that put a lot of sweat and hours into creating the legacy that Fillmore posters should be. They didn't do all that just to have it tarnished by a shitload of mediochre work some 40 years later. Bravo on this one. Sperry's work too.
