UPDATE: The Mogwai posters have sold out.
Hard core will never die indeed, because Mogwai is still out there tearing it up. I did another poster for one of their shows in Los Angeles at the Mayan Theatre (2009 poster) and I’m positively thrilled to be releasing it for sale tomorrow (5/12/11) in my online store for $30 each at a random time (limit one per household).
This print is a two color screen printed poster on 18 x 24 inch 100 lb Lemon Drop French Paper. All posters are signed and numbered by me in an edition of 80.
I made a very thorough process video of me making this poster, showing both aspects of the traditional drawing and inking, as well as the digital aspects.
The concert was quite awesome as my ears are still ringing. Mogwai never holds back when they play. The Mayan Theatre was the perfect place for them too, with it’s insane decor and Mayan themes, it really created an excellent mood and atmosphere. The band sold out of my posters before the show even started.
Backstage, there was a lot of celebrating. Apparently, it was Stuart Braithwaite’s (guitar, vocals) birthday that night and Martin Bulloch (drummer) had a child recently (because of that, he couldn’t join Mogwai on tour). Mogwai is super friendly and they all appreciated my poster and even signed one for me. Stuart told me the 2009 psoter is framed in his parents’ house back in Scotland. I had an incredibly hard time understanding half of what those Scots were saying, so I just nodded and smiled.
