New Posters for Mogwai, Steve Martin, and The Head and the Heart by Doed Eyed Design

 Little late posting this since they dropped them yesterday. Doe Eyed Design dropped four new prints in their shop, including two new Mogwai prints, a print for Steve Martin's "The Jerk" and a tour poster for The Head and The Heart.

 For Doe Eyed Designs first Mogwai poster of the spring tour, they tried to capture some of the fire and brimstone of their older, heavier tunes. What better way to capture that vibe than an illustration of a stern, blank-faced preacher?

 Mogwai’s recently material has toned down some of the bludgeoning aspects of their old songs, opting instead for more subtlety and beauty. Their latest poster for their spring tour captures some of their new, mysterious atmosphere.

 Hey wild and crazy guyees, Doe Eyed Design recently contributed artwork to Gallery 1988’s “Excuuuuuuse Meeeeeeeee” show which included artwork inspired by the amazing Steve Martin, including his early stand-up career, his work at Saturday Night Live, his films like L.A. Story, Three Amigos, Bowfinger, Little Shop Of Horrors, Man With Two Brains, Roxanne, Shopgirl, and so on. However, they choose to base their print on their all time favoritest of Steve Martin movies, The Jerk.

 They worked with The Head and the Heart on some merch designs before, but this time they were lucky enough to work with them on their spring tour poster. They came up with a bright, cheerful, minimalist forest with just a hint of something darker than the scene seems.
