DAVE & TIM // NJ POSTER UPDATE

Here's an update on the poster, still very much a work in progress - still need to do all of the texture+shading work that will really flesh this out. The plan is for the grey color to be printed with metallic ink. 

DAVE & TIM REVISED CONCEPTS

Here are a few new ideas based on your feedback:

A classic telephone switchboard with the cable twisting and tangling to create a firedancer.

A dense, complicated machine working to strum a guitar - this direction has tons of room for cool little details.

A sort of 70s/80s era computer monitor - lots of chunky analog dials and a graph display creating two guitars. We could run with this idea to make a really interesting interface full of lights, switches, gauges, buttons, etc...

Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds Holmdel, NJ Concepts

Here are a handful of concepts for the Holmdel poster:

I was researching Holmdel and its where the Bell research facility is located. Researchers there won a a nobel prize for discovering CMB rays, which is leftover radiation from the big bang, I thought doing a cool, super bright and dynamic jack kirby inspired big bang explosion poster could work really well both conceptually and visually. I think this would look incredible printed up with some fluorescent inks.  UPDATE: stylistically I think this one could be really cool executed in a style similar to a Walk The Moon poster we did a few years back - I think for this though I'd like to make it less random/chaotic and a bit more defined and comic book inspired with more purposeful forms and linework. (see jack kirby link above)

The venue is right by the Hudson bay, this would be a cool graphic treatment featuring the ship 'half moon' which was the first to reach the Hudson river and surrounding areas. Two acoustic guitars and other interesting little details float in the water.  UPDATE: I think this concept would work really well in a vintage-inspired minimal geometric style with some nice textures and shading to add definition. I think this Avett Brothers poster we did is a pretty good example of this style.

This idea was spurned when thinking about the concepts of two - duality, light and dark, night and day etc... This poster would be reversible with an anthropomorphized sun or moon depending on which way you display it. 

UPDATE: this one could also work really well with a simple shape-based illustration style, but with some cool stylish geometric linework to create details and flesh out the background - maybe incorporate a frame and some other structured elements containing the artists' names, show date, location, etc... This Phish poster we did is a good example.
