    Default Poster for The Urge at The Blue Note

    I got to see The Urge play for the first time since they broke up in 2004 at The Blue Note in Columbia, MO, this weekend. It was a blast. The posters for the show were kind of boring and definitely not marketed well, so I made one of my own. I'm thinking about screen printing it as an 11x17 2 color run.

    Since I've not posted anything on here yet I figured this would be a good time to dip my toe in the critique waters. Tear it apart, please.





    Possible 2 color option?

    That's not a 2-color design. Why would you make a poster for a show after the event? If you intend to sell it, it's a bootleg. If you just want to hang it on your bedroom wall, it's fan art.

    Fair enough, it's more of a fan art kind of thing. It wouldn't really be to sell, I talked some with the band after the show and thought I might do a run to give to them, since they like some of the stuff they've seen of mine in the past. Kind of a thank you for rocking thing.

    It could be 2-color, depending on what color paper you print on.

    I don't have access to a great number of colored papers at this time, so if I want anything other than white in the background it has to be printed there.

    if you could get red paper with yellow dots in the right spot you could do it with one color.

    I was actually considering doing it on watercolor paper. Plain the background by hand that way they're all a little different, then screen the one color on top.

    Most shocking thing about this show? Steve Ewing has his head shaved now.
