The Dear Hunter

Fillmore poster for The Dear Hunter's final show of their 2016 US Tour. They were joined by The Awesome Orchestra on stage. Fantastic! The poster was created using only song titles from the band's first five albums of their 6-album story Arc.

Eels - Fillmore

Eels - Fillmore

Might be my favorite Fillmore poster I've ever done. Eels (Mark Oliver Everett) was dealing with so many traumatic things in his life and still manages to make such redemptive music. I thought of a man facing execution... ready for the end... then decided to show how it doesn't always have to be that way. The bird on his shoulder represents hope... and I added the "LIFE" motif to further add to that feeling. 13x19" on card stock.

Paul Weller - Fillmore

Paul Weller - Fillmore

Paul Weller at The Fillmore. Inspired by Weller's 22 Dreams album and Fellini's dream sequence in "8 1/2" 13x19"on card stock.

They Might Be Giants - Fillmore

They Might Be Giants - Fillmore

Thought The New Yorker homage (and Saul Steinberg's classic cover) worked perfectly for this clever NYC band. 13x19" on Card Stock.

Moe. - Fillmore

Moe. - Fillmore

Moe. at The Fillmore Rabbits, rabbits, rabbits... and the non-conformist turtle. 13x19" on Card Stock.

M83 - Fillmore

M83 - Fillmore

Based on a piece by my favorite artist, Francisco Goya's "The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters." The imagery was based on the aspects of Anthony Gonzalez's life... including the Smashing Pumpkins' "Mellon Collie" Sun and Moon. (That album inspired him to create "Hurry Up We're Dreaming"... 13x19" on Card Stock.

The Kooks - Fillmore

The Kooks - Fillmore

The Kooks live at The Fillmore. This art about a Brighton, England band made me delve into the the history of that city... So the background features the skylines of both San Francisco and Brighton... and in the center was inspired by Brighton's annual "Burning The Clocks" festival. 13x19" on Card Stock.

The Hold Steady - Fillmore

The Hold Steady - Fillmore

I always wondered what if would be like to redesign the Subway in NY. Here's one possible scenario. It includes a table with a few band references... The New Yorker, The Replacements' album and their own. The type for the band name was pulled from the New York subway where the band live. The band absolutely loved it! 13x19" on Card Stock.

Feist - Fillmore

Feist - Fillmore

Feist and Grizzly Bear at The Fillmore. Changed the keys on an old typewriter to only have the letters "F, E, I, S, T" and the numbers to only have "1,2,3,4"... they typed out the picture coming out of the "My Moon, My Man," as well. 13x19" on card stock.

Death Cab For Cutie - Fillmore

Death Cab For Cutie - Fillmore

After reading about Ben Gibbard's happy place after so many years of turmoil, I thought an appropriate analogy would be the guy stuck at sea for years, finally arriving back to land (Can you see the Golden Gate Bridge's shadow?). He's equipped with a no-electricity needed turntable and a few albums... along with a copy of a Jack Kerouac book. He's also wearing an old Seattle Pilots hat and a SuperSonics shirt... 13x19" on card stock.

Sia - Fillmore

Sia - Fillmore

This poster was actually created AFTER the show, so it was not handed out as usual. Makes it kind of a rarity. I've got some, if anyone's interested. 12.75x18.75" on uncoated matte card stock.

Nada Surf - Fillmore

Nada Surf - Fillmore

I was a big fan of Rogue Wave when I took this gig on... and my admiration for Nada Surf went up tenfold during the creation of this illustration. Always wanted to used the full space of the Fillmore poster with a single figure and tried to do that here. There's an "F" (representing The Fillmore) in every poster... this one was placed on the sneakers. 13x19" on card stock

Grizzly Bear - Fillmore

Grizzly Bear - Fillmore

An illustration I liked, but didn't think it was working very well... then just cropped in tight and voila... worked a lot better. She's holding a snow globe with the city of San Francisco. Her necklace charms represent each of Grizzly Bear's three albums. 13x19" on card stock.

Widespread Panic - Fillmore NYC

Sleater-Kinney Fillmore Poster

LOVE the concept. Did NOT like the execution of the art. Oh well. I only have a couple of these left... My house got flooded (ironic, no?) and I lost all but two soggy ones... saved the one signed by the band!)

Blind Pilot  Fillmore Poster

Blind Pilot Fillmore Poster

I've always wanted to use this illustration of a busker surrounded by people with earbuds not hearing the beauty of music right next to them. Printed on uncoated card stock.

Beach House - Fillmore Poster

Beach House - Fillmore Poster

I love this image, but not really sure it worked for Beach House. I came up with one particular idea / sketch that was shot down and to this day, I still think it would have been perfect for the band. Oh well...

Andrew Bird Fillmore Poster

Amazing talent... thought of his whistling and decided to bring it into the woods.
