Matt Leunig Widespread Panic Boise Poster On Sale Details

The boys of Widespread Panic are starting up their Spring Tour this week and kicked it off in Boise, ID on Friday, March 13th. Being the first poster of a tour is always an interesting task as you want to represent out the gate and deliver something that people will still hopefully remember as a bunch of new posters are created as the tour proceeds. Matt Leunig had the honors of doing the first poster.

Here are Matt's thoughts on creating the poster:
Originally I was toying with the idea of doing something involving a Bronco or giant horse as Boise has a lot of “Bronco” imagery attached to it but thought the idea had been played out in some past WSP posters and as it started to move along I had no connection to the animal or design. Thinking of the terrain and other Idaho wildlife I loved the imagery and notion of the Elder Shaman Ram that was welcoming the coming of Spring.
The final result is a 5-color screen printed poster measuring 18′ x 24′ with a 200 print run.

Matt will have his signed Artist Proof posters on sale Monday March 16 at 10 am PDT at
