Poster: Illustration & Layering

In my free time, I play music. Back in 2012, I was playing drums in the band Science Made Us Robots. We’d written some songs, played quite a few shows, and had a set booked at a not-so-little event called  Rebellion Festival.

For the uninitiated, Rebellion Festival is a renowned annual gathering of punks from around the world, in Blackpool, UK. Four stages, three days, and more mohawks, piercings and beer than a seaside town should ever need to contain. It’s fantastic.

As it was quite a special show, we decided to give away some merchandise, including an illustrated poster. I gave the background a nice Twin Peaks style pattern, and the robot is modelled on an old soviet propaganda poster. Nice to think that this might still be on someone’s wall from all those years ago.
