Simple poster for Magda from Berlin being put on by Subject. No sooner had this been the first draft been sent off when it showed up on her myspace page. I'd consider that a thumbs up.

Bacardi B-Live

Here's an example of a poster in progress. Bacardi B-Live is a series of full on shows that happen almost every Bank Holiday Sunday. They used to work with a pretty strict template, which is fine, but they wanted to try something different. I put together the white draft (left) and they looked for a few changes which you can see on the right. Not a disaster.

One from November 2009. Digital Mystikz' Mala playing CrawDaddy. It's a cool photo.

Antibalas 2

They ditched the afrobeat orchestra by this stage, back in Dublin in 2007. This is just an edited version of their Security album cover with a bloody awful info section at the bottom, yuk, what was I thinking?

An oldie, from 2004, Ninja Tune group Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra or just Antibalas as they're known now. I have another one from these guys too, might post that later.

Mixmaster Mike

Hey, another gig that hasn't happened yet. This is for one next week when Mixmaster Mike comes to town. This is another one that started of as a very last minute design for a larger print ad then just carried on being the design for the gig. Not the best way to work it but I don't like it when the one gig has a couple of different designs and once something is used I tend to try and stick with it. I like consistency.

Deus poster from 2008. This is just the album cover they were touring at the time. Thing is 'deus' is done in this really thin scratch on the cover. Not ideal for a poster that sometimes needs to be seen from a distance. So I took it into illustrator and bulked it out. I hope it retained some of the spirit of the original, erm, not so sure about that. So anyway, I decided to hand draw the other text too.

Adrian Crowley

"I don't believe it". That's what Adrian said last night when he won the Choice Music Prize... and here's the poster for the launch of the album that won, Seasons Of The Sparks. Fair play Adrian well done and sure, I might as well try to get some of that Crowley-traffic today with this post!

Seasick Steve (again 2)

This temporary Seasick Steve poster was a super quick one. It was done one afternoon just to be put up in the venue that night, I think the gig was announced that day. This gig and a second one ended up selling out before a proper poster was ever needed. So this is it.

Club Land Rover Ireland

Time for a non-music post? Here's a flyer I did recently for Club Land Rover Ireland. Pretty cool hobby.

Just thinking about what to post today when I read this. Guru of Gangstarr is in a coma following a heart attack. Hope he makes it through... This 2 colour billboard poster is from, I think, 2003 when they came back to Ireland for the first time in 10 years. It's a big duotone print, something I'd avoid at all costs these days.
