New Primus Gig Poster!

by ncwinters on October 6, 2021

New Primus!

Maybe my favorite poster to date. I know I often say “I had an absolute blast working on this one” but this one truly was a total joy, and fun to push in a more natural direction. When I say ‘natural direction’ I mean that I pivoted away from my usual: a heavy focus on the technical setup of designing art for screenprint. Instead, this time I played with a new setup where I was able to focus more purely on just the art side of things. I’m extremely happy with the result.

I do have to give special attention to Isaac and Aleisha at Lady Lazarus for doing more of the heavy lifting on file setup than usual to make this pivot possible. I try to make my files as printer-friendly as possible (not always a victory) but on this one, I left more of the technical to them and they really made the final print sing.

The poster is for last Tuesday’s sold out show at the Beacon Theater in New York City (oh how I miss you sometimes, NYC). For Primus’ “Tribute to Kings” Tour, they’ve been playing Rush’s “A Farewell to Kings” album in its entirety. While AFtK definitely has a different vibe than other Rush albums, I couldn’t help but push the envelope in terms of visual madness as tribute to both bands.

I have a stack of the show copies available for sale as well as very limited quantities in two artist variant colorways: “Ice” (blues) and “Fire” (reds, natch). The foils in the variant colorways turned out extremely well. I used a white base for the main image with strategic cutouts for the foil to pop through. I built the white base into a “marbleized” pattern over the foil which gives the final foil a lava foil look. Extremely happy with the result.

The prints will drop this coming Friday, October 8. As always, to get the exact drop time, be sure you’re signed up to the newsletter in the sidebar. Newsletter subscribers get the exact drop time emailed to them in advance, I will warn that there has been MASSIVE interest in these, and there are quite limited quantities. Keep in mind that there are far more interested buyers than prints, so there are limits of no more than one kind of each print per person. No doubles of any single print available: orders of duplicates will be cancelled.

Good luck, and on to the prints!
