Aren Vandenburgh Built To Spill Fall Tour Poster

New artist by the name of Aren Vandenburgh contacted me about his new poster for Built To Spill's fall tour. As a fan of the group for over 20 years he was stoked for the opportunity to do the poster. 

I asked him about the idea behind the design :
Built to Spill came through my small-ish town (Eugene, Oregon) this July and sort of on a whim I chatted with Doug after the show about maybe sending him some work to look at and maybe doing a poster. It ended up that the artist they were working with for their Fall tour poster fell through and I was offered the opportunity to do it. I put the design together over the course of a couple of days and had the good folks at The Half and Half do the printing and I think it came out nice. The budget afforded for some cool, subtle minty off-white French paper (speckletone starch mint) and three colors. The imagery isn't too serious, but it's loosely based on some of the things I had been thinking about while listening to Built to Spill's new album: planets, the past, civilizations, overlapping sounds and shapes. Also - I like snails.
This poster is a 3-color screen printed 18x24 poster on some nice minty off-white paper.
