Adventures in Graphic Design

Some bands just make me want to draw.  I’ve seen Opus X perform for the 4 Sundays.  I made a flyer for them when they first started, and I figured it was time for something new.  I initially drafted a picture of the band members dancing on top of a hand holding a chord (the sketch is below), but I realized that there was too much going on there.  I took pictures of the band members, though, so I’ll draw their portraits for a different project.

I’ll take you through the process…

  1. “I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what’s your line
    He said it’s eatin’ purple people and it sure is fine
    But that’s not the reason that I came to land
    I wanna get a job in a rock and roll HAND”

    …get it? Rock and roll HAND?

    Okay not that funny. But you really NAILED the fingertips here
