Tone Deaf Touring's SXSW 2013 Showcase poster.

This year I was given the honor of creating the poster for Tone Deaf Touring's 2013 SXSW showcase.  Where else are you going to see The Gates Of Slumber start a show and set the mood for KEN Mode to destroy the stage? Young Widows follow with their brand o' heaviness and Today Is The Day will be ripping y'all a new asshole. Nick Oliveri's Mondo Generator will be tearing up the stage in preparation for UK badasses, Orange Goblin to finish out the night. The whole show will rule!

The idea for poster came from Erik Jarvis at Tone Deaf Touring, who just wanted a giant squid grabbing onto a large fish that is about to eat a smaller fish. So, this image surfaced and turned out to be a feat in stippling for me. The detail on the whale alone took a day to complete. I also enjoyed free handing in all of the lettering that was based off of an old sailor font. I figured that it would fit the theme.

For any of you going to SXSW and want to see a heavy line up, be sure to head to Red 7. And, pick up a poster while you're there.
