I just finished this poster design for Heartless Bastards, and we printed it at Bearded Lady over the weekend. Dusty blue, deep slate, and metallic gold on Cougar Natural paper. The print came out awesome. Subtle and earthy. Here’s the digital preview. Ink color’s never exactly the same, but we get pretty damn close, and I decided to go a less saturated blue. Working in a print shop has perks! I like having the option to make in-the-moment decisions about ink color.
The band asked me to design this poster as a sort of companion piece for a shirt design I’d previously done for them – vintage anatomical chart-inspired, incorporating song titles from their latest album, Arrow.
