Ray Davies Warfield Poster by Chuck Sperry

From Chuck:

Ray Davies brought the choir to The Warfield tonight – he also brought his anarchic sense of humor and brought down the house. Saying this was a good show is an understatement. -

I noticed that Ray Davies used a William Blake illustration for the cover of his latest album featuring choral arrangements of his favorite songs, so I’m paying homage with this poster, using William Blake art from his worked entitled, “Ancient of Days.” I used a heavy metallic silver and tinted it with translucent layers of color on black paper. This poster shines.

William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English Poet. painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age.
