JAMES - Monday night was another great show, this time Yeasayer played the Orange Peel. I was on hand, selling a portion of my posters at the show, and I sold every one I brought with me. As always at shows in Asheville, I met a ton of great people. It was a blast. I have some more of these prints that are now available to buy online - get it here: www.jamesflames.com/pages/STORE-AtDawning.html
This was another poster that I drew like forever ago. I think it was late January when I finished this - and now going back and looking at my original sketch ideas brings it all back to me. You can see the succession of ideas - I really loved the posture of the creature, and I knew that's what I wanted. The rest was just figuring out the placement and the colors.
I actually kept the sketch version of the creature as-is for the final - I liked how loose he was. And so to contast it, I re-drew the clouds and the lettering on paper, scanned it in, then traced it line-by-line with vector, making those lines really clean and crisp. I used this great "Orange Fizz" paper from French Paper, and it worked out great - every single color is so bright and saturated, totally jumps out.
