Poster commissioned for the Celebrate Virginia Live concert series in Fredericksburg, VA. I worked a bit differently with this piece than usual, I did all the pieces of the poster separately through drawing, printmaking and cut paper, and then combined everything digitally. Typically, my work is almost totally traditional, all on the same sheet of paper and treated like a painting. I try to be on a computer for as little time as I can get away with because it never feels "right" or physical enough for me, but for this image I felt that the sharpness of working digital helped clean up the drawing and combine the parts more successfully. Hopefully in the future I can make peace with the devil box, but I think this was a good step forward in learning to work together with the computer and the advantages that it may have.
