Primus 2014 Spring Tour Poster Series Artist Line Up

1 comment:

Details from Zoltron on the new Primus Poster Series he has put together.

I remember it as if it were a meal ago…. And here we are once again, on the eve of another glorious Primus tour.

As has become customary for such an outing, I rattled some creative cages and knocked down some fancypants artdoors® and after lots of bartering, badgering and general pandering, I convinced a number of heavy-hitting artists to each design a commemorative, limited edition silkscreen poster for one of the stops along the tour.

Each performance, excluding the festivals, will have 100 (and occasionally more) hand printed posters available for purchase from the merch booth. Like every show in the past, we expect the posters to sell out quickly. Remember.. The early worm gets eaten by the bird. (And yes, poster tubes will be supplied.)

The individual posters will be unveiled the night of each show, at the gig, on the Primus facebook page and here, at

Such a multitude of masculinity (and some very welcome femininity) could only be found in one place... So in Alphabetical Order, Here are The Artists involved in the Spring 2014 Poster Series.

Jason Abraham Smith Kadavar Detroit Poster On Sale

No comments:

Jason Abraham Smith dropped his wicked Kadavar poster for the recent show in Detroit. The poster is 18x24 2-color on Plum Punch Vivtone French Paper. It is a signed and numbered edition of 50.

I have no idea who Kadavar is so I asked Jason about the design:

I saw Kadavar live a while back and (this might sound dumb) I was mesmerized by the way their hair moved while playing. It almost put me into some sort of a trance. The drummer seemed to move his head in the exact same way the whole set, while the guitar/ vocalist moved very organically and somewhat spastic at times. It was a great show, and I thought to myself, "If I ever do a poster for Kadavar it needs to have psychedelic hair."

Tim Doyle Guitars for Pandas Coachella Print

No comments:

Tim Doyle was originally commissioned by the Coachella music festival to create  a poster at the show (Seen HERE), the art from that sold-out poster is now available as a limited edition silkscreen print!

This print, measuring 18×24 is signed and numbered by Doyle in a first edition of 150. 6 colors, hand-printed, and featuring a lush split fountain in the sky over the mountains of Indio, California- where the festival is held!

Recurring Doyle-print characters like the Panda (from Vietnam on Wheels) and the Bad Cats- Ringo and Pickles (first appearing in ‘The Camino Cats Make Their Escape‘) as well as the Penguin travelers from ‘Northbound Whale‘ all make a return here, enjoying a quiet moment in the sun.


Joey Remmers Unstable Perch Print

No comments:

Joey Remmers has released his latest print Unstable Perch at 1xRUN.

"This was actually done as a commission last year using oil on canvas. I take a couple every year and had a lot of fun with this one. Now, I should have the original study laying around here someplace. Overall I would say from start to finish it took somewhere around 20-25 hours to complete. The client I worked with was very open. They liked waterfalls and wanted red included somewhere. Once that seed was planted the rest just came to life on its own." - Joey Remmers

Details from Adam on the hockey mask print

Not many people know this but I used to play Ice Hockey semi-professionally, I was a goalie. When I was playing I always said when I stopped playing competitively and was banished to the beer leagues I would make a "beer-helmet" mask to play in. Well moving to the UK put a damper on that, I haven't been on the ice in over 10 years. So when the king of screen printing (and Canuck) Andy MacDougal asked me if I was interested in doing a demo print for SXSW I figured this was my chance to make that mask (if only in print form) since the only things Andy and I ever talk about is Screen printing and Ice Hockey. This was printed live on site at Flatstock SXSW 2014 by Andy Mac (Squeegeeville) , and Jonathan Rebolloso (Coronado Studio)

4 color layers (blue, red, metallic silver - gold blend, black)

City and Color Pomona Poster by Brian Ewing

No comments:

Brian Ewing has a cool looking new poster for the City and Color, here are the details from Brian :

Printed using a special metallic ink combo, this print actually changes as you walk around it for an optical illusion that’s not to be missed! Check out this quick TUMBLR video to see how the print changes depending on what angle you're viewing it.

I really enjoyed doing this poster. Alexisonfire was one of my favorite bands. Every year I was on the Warped Tour I'd drop whatever I was doing to check them out. I always wanted to do something for them...and finally this is my chance. Dallas Green was what made that band for me. Made them stand out and have a longer shelf life compared to most bands running the whole "screamo" genre into the ground.

I also got to finally use this image of Carol Lombard from the movie "Supernatural". I felt that it tied in visually with the music of City and Colour. It's dark and romantic and sometimes doomed. I like bummer music. Sue me.

It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the the Earth Day Network and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.

The oceans are the life support system of our blue planet. Let's make everyday "Earth Day"!

A portion of the proceeds go to support PangeaSeed's efforts to help save our seas..

Details from PangeaSeed on their Indigogo project:

Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a ground-breaking street art project created by PangeaSeed to bring the beauty and the plight of the world’s oceans into streets around the globe. By collaborating with internationally renowned artists, we create large-scale murals that focus attention on pressing environmental issues the oceans are facing.

In collaboration with their friends at 1xRUN we are embarking on our biggest Sea Walls project yet. We’ve invited some of today’s biggest names in contemporary street art to join us on our first-ever Sea Walls expedition. The artists include Meggs, Hannah Stouffer, Curiot, Nosego, Celeste Byers, Tristan Eaton, Shark Toof, Aaron Glasson, Vexta, Cinzah Merkens, Tatiana Suarez, Saner and Spencer Keeton Cunningham.

The mission of the expedition is to offer these artists the opportunity to swim with and study endangered whale sharks and oceanic manta rays off the coast of the island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico from July 20-28, 2014. Inspired by their interactions with these majestic giants in the wild, the artists will create a series of large-scale public murals on the island to help educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of these animals and the oceans. The murals will also highlight the benefits of ecotourism and long-term sustainability of natural resources.

Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a new approach to ocean conservation, marrying art and activism. The Sea Walls expedition will make a large impact and gain global media attention – with your help.

Neal Williams Graveyard Las Vegas Poster Release Details

No comments:

Neal Williams will have a new Graveyard poster going up for sale on Wednesday morning at 10:00 AM PST

I asked Neal about the design

 When I was asked to do the Las Vegas show, I remembered there is a place in Las Vegas called the boneyard where old signs and stuff go when they're retired. The connection between that and a graveyard seemed obvious, so I extended the idea to a dystopian landscape where nothing thrives. Some kind of massive dead scorpion corpse lies in front of part of the Statue of Liberty replica that is a known landmark at the New York - New York casino. Letters from old Las Vegas signage spell out the band name. I had a particularly bad time in Las Vegas the one time I went, so it wasn't difficult to picture it as a wasteland.

Graveyard at Vinyl in Las Vegas, NV - 16" x 24" - Four colors on 100 lb. French Cement Green - Signed and numbered edition of 120. $25

Escape From New York GABZ Movie Poster

No comments:

Next week Grey Matter Art is going to make a lot of people very happy with the first ever official licensed John Carpenter "Escape from New York" Poster. They are really excited about this project since they were lucky to be able to work with another one of their favorite artists, Grzegorz Domaradzki or A.K.A. Gabz to most.

The poster is a 24x36, 6 color screen print (Variant has 5 colors) but for right now you can only see the teaser image above. The full reveal will be April 29 so watch out Snake Plissken is coming for you.

Here is what GABZ had to say about the poster:

“When Mike Gregory, co-founder of Grey Matter Art offered me an opportunity to work on John Carpenter’s “Escape from New York” I didn't hesitate much. My main intention was to deliver something a little bit different from what I’ve been known for until now… something less character based more focused on the movie’s atmosphere, and true to the original poster artwork. Being a fan of the original and iconic poster, my print also has post-apocalyptic streets of New York City, gang members, and the majestic Statue of Liberty (or what was left from it) dominating the skyline. Except Snake Plissken, in my version is all by himself: tired, hurt, on the run and fighting against all odds. Perceptive viewers should also notice Snake’s plane crossing the red walls of the New York City prison and the bottom grid which is intended to be a tribute to visual effects used in the movie”.
