Ian Williams Bad Religion New York Posters

Bad Religion is in the middle of playing 4 shows in the New York area and Ian Williams did the posters for the shows.

Tuesday & Wednesday they were at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Thursday & Friday night they are at the Bowery Ballroom which is from what I was told down in the basement of the Bowery.

I talked to Ian about the design of the posters:
 I was asked to make some posters for Bad Religion and wanted to come up with a concept to pull them all together. An idea that the art director and I came up with was to base the designs on different gangsters from the areas that the shows were in. For Brooklyn, there's Bill the Butcher from Gangs of New York and Thurman from The Warriors for The New York City show. I thought that the darkness of the characters fit well with the music of Bad Religion and combining the two made it even more fun to make the posters.
 Only 75 of each are for sale at the shows so get there early Friday so you can get one.
