The fantastic jam-band Umphrey’s McGee commissioned me to create this super fun silk-screened gig poster for their Oakland, LA, and Terrapin concerts in early 2020. However, because 2020 was an unending dumpster fire, these shows were canceled (along with most everything else). I’m so glad the band has decided to release the posters to the world, regardless. I can’t wait to work with them again when life returns to normal!
This design sprung from the idea of someone walking a freakish mutant pet – an amalgam of different animals and insects. The Art Director thought it would be fun to make the character walking the dog a homage to Gritty (the Mascot of the Philadelphia Flyers that I was commissioned to design).
