JASON ISBELL CHARLOTTE NC POSTER // FINAL ART
Here is the final art for the poster - tried to give it a real authentic vintage feel like the stuff you sent over. Charlotte has a really rich racing history (nascar hall of fame is there and a few tracks) so I thought something automotive themed could be cool - let me know what you think! This is set up to be 16x20 and 3 colors.
CHARLOTTE POSTER CONCEPTS UPDATE
Here are a few ideas that are more conceptual. i felt like some of the themes of the record centered around the idea of duality - light/dark, love/death, old/new, rural/urban, etc.... I tried to keep this in mind when working on these.

Here are a few different ideas for the Charlotte poster - these were all inspired by lyrics from the new record.

I think this could also look really great printed on Manila tag (see below)
ISBELL TOUR POSTER UPDATE
Here is the poster with anchor and bird incorporated in a few different colorways - did a quick texture treatment, but would probably take another pass at it if we go with this direction.

JASON ISBELL // TOUR POSTER CONCEPT SKETCHES
Here are a few rough directions for the poster - I'm a huge fan of old blue note & folkways album art so I was pretty excited to see you sent those over as reference material. This kind of style is hard to convey in a pencil sketch so I did these digitally - but please think of them as sketches still - colors, typefaces, etc all subject to possibly change throughout the process. Let me know if y'all are into any of these and we can keep pushing in that direction. Ideally the goal would be to faithfully recreate the style, including little logos and some small filler copy like dates, names, etc...
Also worth nothing that I used some photos I found online as placeholders in these - if y'all have any photos you think would fit the vibe of the poster I'd love to have them to work with!
JASON ISBELL // CHATTANOOGA POSTER REVISED ART
JASON ISBELL // CHATTANOOGA POSTER
Here is the final artwork for the Chattanooga poster, tried to capture the same sort of vibe as the reference material without going too country/western/americana with it. I think these are going to look great printed!
This could also look really great printed with some super bright fluorescent inks:
