I like the "keywork" tatt peaking out. Nice touch, subtle. If you know what it is... then you see it and know it's there. I remember sitting in the Coheed merch tent at the Warped stop here in OR 2004 with Travis and Mic. I had this artwork on a Cingular "backstage pass" looking thing & I remember them saying how they were stoked and honored that you put that on there.
I haven't left my apartment or done much for 2 months....just worked on this project. The deadlines went from being a few weeks to a few days. I laughed I cried.
These are also being used as banner ads on various sites like the warped tour site. And they'll be available for download as phone screen saver things too.
I was at Dave's when I was doing the final pencil on this. He'd grab it, scream "What the fuck are you doing?" Draw on it and hand it back to me. Then I'd look at it, scream "what the fuck did you do?" Erase some of it and go back to drawing. So yeah, he had some influence on this.
This is one of 6 different posters I was hired to design. Only available at the WARPED TOUR or Cingular store. This is being made into a t shirt as well.
