Nice Cave Los Angeles Print by Todd Slater

You might have been wondering hey what's Todd Slater up to lately ? He has been working like crazy with the summer tours in full gear and has lot's to come.

But this new Nick Cave poster is sick. Todd gives a bit of background on today's art:
There is a dark spirituality that I identify with throughout Nick's work and hoped to capture in the art.  This may be the only time I can recall beginning a piece of art by illustrating the corner pieces versus the central image.  The owls cross their wings as a parallel to the crossed bones in a skull and crossbones.  They symbolize the Bad Seeds and serve as both a warning and a Memento Mori.  Stained glass windows flank the image left and right and north and south evoking a feeling inside a sanctuary.  The trio of serpents and glowing tree is a glimpse into the outside world.
The posters are  18 x 24 inches 6 color screenprinted (1 metallic & 1 clear metallic overlay). The editions are signed and numbered: blue 100 copies & red 50 copies and silver edition of 50 to debut at MondoCon 2017. The show was June 29, 2017 at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
