Todd Slater Foo Fighters Seattle Poster Release

Todd Slater has released his artist edition poster for the Foo Fighters recent concert in Seattle.

Todd talks about his idea for the poster:

In 2005 the Foo Fighter's released 'In Your Honor' and it's a record that's been on my mind lately.  The band went on the campaign trail with John Kerry in a move I found surprising.  The Foo Fighters aren't an overtly political band and I'm not an overtly political artist.  Listening to that record again and studying the packaging, which features a tiny bison, some ideas for an image started to emerge.  When I think of America two symbols immediately come to mind: an eagle and a bison.  The bison, standing larger than life, represents the people of America.  The eagle is a representation of the ideas that make America what it is.  Lately, I've noticed many people staring the eagle directly in the eyes, questioning the ideas that make America the great country it is, and wondering whether or not those ideas and values are shrinking.  The arrows all point dead center as a reminder that all eyes are on us.
Poster is18 x 24 inches with 4 screens (2 metallics) 1-100 signed APs are sold by Todd.
