I ran into my old friend Evan while drinking coffee at Sunergos. We use to print together at Monkey Drive; I have always have had respect for him and a secret desire to design a t-shirt for his band Young Widows. When we spoke at S-gos he filled me in on his life and later he sent me his new record which will be released sometime in the spring.
The record rules! I had to design a t-shirt.
Skulls are nothing new. But, Young Widows has always been able to execute the over done image in new creative cool ways... from such artists as Birder and Derek Snodgrass. For my approach i decided to look to both those artists for inspiration while clearly creating my own style.
In the end i feel like we have an original piece that ties into the Young Widows identity.
We are both pleased
