Matt Leunig Leftover Salmon Estes Park Stanley Hotel Poster

For the last couple years now “Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass” band, Leftover Salmon has held an annual event at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO also known as “The Overlook Hotel” from the horror classic, The Shining. Guests are encouraged to dress up and the whole weekend is themed after the film. Matt Leunig was happy to get an invite to do the poster for the show and work with the band for the first time.

Matt talks about his approach to designing the poster:
Obviously when coming up with concepts for the poster working imagery from the film was important. The previous years posters had been more portraits of characters from the film and I wanted to try a different route.

The typewriter plays a huge roll in the film and was an easy starting point for me. I thought using it to represent Jack, especially from the “bar scene” where he truly starts to lose it was perfect and tried to use smokey filigree to work in other imagery (twins, axe, etc..) including a “fleur di lis” representing Mardi Gras.
The poster has a print run of 200 (signed/numbered) which were initially available at the show & Matt has about 25 copies (#175-200) from the run. Before people start asking,… there are NO VARIANTS of this print.
