The Wedding Present are continuing their album tours this year with Watusi, an underrated one of theirs. I love it though and it holds some very special memories for me. I wanted to do a poster based on the album cover but not just OF the album cover. So I sourced a photo of the same Bush radio that appears on Watusi and I replicated some of the totally 90s effects. Hopefully when Gedge arrives in Dublin in November he'll get it and realize that I did this out of respect and that only a fan could have done this one.

Poster for Booka Shade who are playing a gig in Vicar Street next weekend. This is quite simple. It's just their latest album cover, Eve, with a bit of work done on it. I got a flat high res cover from them so firstly I had to paint out the small Booka Shade logo on that, then slap a big one in its place. The funky background made that more tricky than usual. Worked out though.

Crowbar is the front section of The Button Factory, made into its own bar. I got to do the logo for it. Well, my first idea was just to use the same lettering as The Button Factory. After going around the houses with designs and names we ended back at the initial idea. Then the tagline was added which is fine.
New poster for a new live music night at a new bar called Crowbar. This is not typed, rather pieced together from a nice painted alphabet, letter by letter. This was done as a million layers in photoshop but I think I can speed up the next one by using Illustrator.
