Curtis Mayfield for
Warner Bros.

Fellow maker Michael Coleman requested my participation in an exhibition he co-curated for Warner Bros. Records entitled GIG. For the show, designers, artists and printmakers were prompted to create a concert poster, hypothetical or otherwise, utilizing any artist from WBs vast 50 year catalog. My Curtis Mayfield poster pulls inspiration from traditional funk and soul colorways and typography. These aesthetic references were blended with experimental printmaking techniques including cut-vinyl collagraphy and custom rainbow roll gradient paper printed by Tribune Showcard.
