Post #1059 – Steely Dan poster
I’ll be honest, I never really got into Steely Dan – I’d heard stuff over the years of course, but they never really moved me and it just wasn’t my thing, no big deal – so when I was asked to create a poster for their sold-out performance at the Tower Theater this weekend, I was a bit at a loss on how to approach it. Doing some research though, I found out they took their name from a line in William Burroughs‘ infamous novel, Naked Lunch. Being a fan of Burroughs, I decide to take the whole thing full circle and do an illustration of the famous author. I hope the band dig it.
These were printed by the guys at ABNRML and were presented to the band as a gift from Live Nation. It’s a two color screen print on 130lb Black French Construction paper, size 12.5″ x 19″. I do have a few extra prints that will be available for purchase in the new online store, once I finally get around to working out the kinks. Stay tuned folks.
