The Black Keys asked Crosshair to produce the poster for their show July 6th, headlining Milwaukee Summerfest.
Thanks, The Black Keys.
I took a few pics while we printed. Edition of 465, 7 colors.
Here's the film for the first color, complete with Mat Daly's dog's hair.
Here's the paper racked up to acclimate.
The first color is very heavy coverage, getting nearly all of the foreground except for some highlights, as well as the sky.
Part of the reason I did this was, I knew we would have high and changing humidity when we were printing. Getting as much ink down as early as possible minimizes expansion/contraction. There isn't much super-tight registration to this color later on, so I could afford a little growth here to avoid it later.
The first color is a very light blue-gray with a hint of lavender.
Here is the Saturn, ready to roll, with scrap on the table.
First color down.
