Last year I decided to enter a Creative Allies contest for the 2013 Hangout Music Festival concert poster. Those contests are tough cookies considering so many people enter them. I didn’t end up winning the contest, but I think that my poster is a pretty good share regardless!
The Hangout Music Festival is held in Gulf Shores, Alabama right on the beach… like RIGHT on the beach. Pretty awesome. I decided that I wanted my poster to have a hand drawn, gritty feel to it. I also wanted to incorporate the location without it screaming BEACH. I used deep-sea elements, a giant Kraken, skulls, and incorporated a little of the boardwalk in there as well. A sunken underwater explosion of fun.
There she is, in her illuminated underwater glory.
I brought my line drawing into photoshop to add in the colors, typography, and textures.
This was SUCH a fun project! Whenever I have a chance to illustrate something like this I really try to go all out.
Thanks for dropping by & Happy Monday!
