Up! Scumbag cd release poster for Free Zone Radio

Up! Scumbag will be at the Melody Inn on Friday Oct 20th for their upcoming cd release bash. 
I needed a good idea for a gig poster and ran with the name "Up!Scumbag". As you can imagine, it conjures up a lot of visuals and I had many options after about 5 minutes of brainstorming. The following is a look into my preliminary creative thinking:
I remembered as a kid an old gumball machine that sold jawbreakers. On the face of the machine was an image depicting a swollen eyed bully laid out by the local tough kid and a girl in the background swooning. Another bit of inspiration were the old comics for Charles Atlas with the scrawny weakling getting sand kicked in his face. The last image I remembered were the old Victorian bare knuckle fight posters where the loser would be "torn asunder".

This is the amalgamation of all three.

Midnight Movies Fall 2012

This poster was a rush job. Sometimes you have to tap into your problem solving skills when you get into a time crunch. I feel, at times, that I could have done more if I had an extended deadline but you make due and often I am impressed with the results.

Circle City Deacons and Green Room Rockers

I like this poster style but am looking to improve upon it next time. I liked the concept but the execution needs a bit more "OOMPH".

Stay tuned...

Richard Lloyd of Television May 25th

This was a fun job and one of my more high profile posters. Television was a punk band from the 70's New York music scene that frequently played at CBGB's. Noted as a very influential group, they were well known during that era and still to this day. Client: Punk Shots

Kyle Kinane at the Sinking Ship March 4

Just finished this one for Free Zone Radio. This was the plug I received:

Kyle Kinane is a comedian that is skyrocketing in popularity, due to people getting a kick out of his unique storytelling style. His CD "Death of the Party" was a favorite of nearly every comedy entity. His Comedy Central Special is an amazing piece of work. He is generally considered one of the best, and in comedy circles, that is the consensus. Kyle's voice can be heard during promos for Comedy Central, as he is the official voice of the network. One of the hottest names in standup right now, Kinane is coming to Indianapolis for one night. He is making his return to The Sinking Ship, a new comedy venue that attracts a smart crowd that comedians love to perform for. the venue has successfully hosted Kinane, Doug Stanhope, and many others from around the country. Also on the show are Ruse Harstel from Cincinnati, and Jeff Oskay of Indianapolis. This is not a show to miss.

Indiana University Cinema Presents: Vigilante (1983)

This is a new design commissioned by Indiana University Cinema. It will be featured in the upcoming Grindhouse Series coming up in November and the filmmaker, Bill Lustig (Maniac Cop, Relentless) is scheduled to be in attendance. I love 80's crime flicks and surprisingly, I'd never seen this film before. It's definitely worth checking out if you can find it at your local video store...or just go see it at IU Cinema on November 20th!
