As I mention on my “About” page, I was in a band back in the 80’s. (I know: “Who wasn’t in a band in the 80’s?”) We were called the Contact.
Since I was the artist/graphic designer in the band, I wound up doing all our flyers. It was a blast, because I could pretty much do just about anything I wanted. You can see a few samples of my Contact flyers over in the Galleries here.
Here’s another one (which may eventually make its way over into the Galleries too). A lot of the time, band flyers tend to draw from the same sources over and over. For this one, it occurred to me it might be fun to borrow visual influences of an earlier age for once. And it was! I had fun digging up all the reference in the library (pre-internet days, y’all), then pulling all those influences together to make a 30’s style band flyer. I think I did a pretty good job of cartooning all of us too (though I’ve never played a stand-up bass in my life). It was fun to get to do something a little different, and I was happy with how this experiment worked out.
Portions of the flyer are censored here, simply because I don’t think our generous hosts back then would appreciate their home address being posted on the internet.
