black keys: denver: gig poster by strongstuff black keys: denver: gig poster by strongstuff
here's my first-ever gig poster, which happens to be for a band that i dig the hell out of, the black keys.

i was approached by band management a few months back and asked to illustrate a poster in a south park theme for the denver stop on their tour. after running it up the flagpole to trey parker and matt stone, we were off and running.

i'm honored to be part of the lineup of poster artists that the band has employed on this tour.

poster specs:
5-color screenprint on cougar natural 100# cover
size: 18" x 24"
limited edition of 325
