Last year I was contacted to create a gig poster for The Grateful Dead’s new band “Dead & Co.” which has three of the “Core Four” members. It was for two shows at Madison Square Garden in NYC. I decided to go for a darker, mysterious look since these shows took place over Halloween weekend.
There was a tight deadline on this project. I had about four days to finish this along with another Dead & Co. T-shirt design. Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep that week.
The final illustration was well received, but unfortunately they decided not to print it.
