While working on a post for the Indigo Girls’ new live album Staring Down the Brilliant Dream, I discovered that they were sponsoring a Creative Allies poster contest. My Creative Allies submission for the ReadyMade SXSW contest did pretty well, so I didn’t want to miss a chance to create what my be the tour poster for my wife’s all-time favorite music duo.
Since I’m extremely busy with work and trying not to lose a minute of our very short Michigan summer, I only had an hour or so to create this and submit it just prior to last night’s midnight deadline. This design was inspired by the album cover art and was the first thing that popped into my head when I discovered the contest. I wish I’d had longer because I think it could be better, but I’m just glad I was able to submit something.
Creative Allies offers unfortunately poor previews of the artist submissions, so I’ve included a few detail images here.
Please take a minute to give my piece 5-Stars! (you’ll have to create an account, but it’s painless)
