Silkscreened Poster Show

I was invited this year to design a poster for the annual poster show to kick off Calgary's Sled Island music festival. The posters were silkscreened in a limited edition of 30 and displayed for the duration of the event at Phil & Sebastian's Coffee Roasters in Mission. I had a lot of fun getting to draw some morbid stuff for the metal band Wolves In The Throne Room. The final posters were printed by Burnt Toast Studio - great job guys! 


The photos show the final 3 colour poster as well as the initial sketches we went through as concepts for the final piece. The band provided LOTS of ideas to work from. Some of the concepts shown here that I decided to work off of include the celtic warrior theme, the dead being eaten by crows on the battlefield, human sacrifice, and cedar tree spirits.
