“GIVE/PRIESTS/XANAX/H.G.J.” Edition of 40, 12”x16”, chipboard. Multicolored screenprinted background (each unique) with black letterpressed text, hand set in wood and lead type.
The line-up just rolls off the tongue, right? I have been so excited for this show. It’s been in the works for a few months. My band, HGJ, has wanted to play a show with GIVE and PRIESTS for a while, and I’ve also been dying to bring XANAX down from Philly ever since I heard them.
A few of these posters will be around town, and they’ll be for sale at the show.
The final outcome of this project, as pictured above, is in some ways very different than my original concept. This was a long, full day of experimenting and failing and experimenting again. Total emotional rollercoaster. Yesterday all my sentimental art thoughts were about the power of fully committing to ideas. But today was all about how humbling and vital it is to be flexible, to commit revise and recommit. Yeah…I know, guys. When you’re printing for 13 hours, you have a lot of time to THINK.
