Metamorphosis Mini-Tour Mounstraso 2018

The final graphic.

Metamorphosis asked me to do a tour graphic for a t-shirt. They asked for it to be a graphic that could be screen printed in two color.

I had talked with them a little bit about the graphic ideas. Possibly a tiger chicken bat idea, but they asked for a crab hand in there too. Here’s my process:

I started out with this collage as a sort of sketch for the graphic.

The next step was to print it out in cyan (or any color that could later be removed) to go over it with india ink.

This was my initial ink, when I saw it the next day I wasn’t that happy with it but I went with it anyways.

This was the first rendition of the tour graphic. I submitted it to the band as a preview but I told them it was okay but could be better. I thought of using some Peruvian landscape in the background printed as halftone dots, this one was too muddy as well. The band wanted me to use the logo I had previously drawn for them too, and hand-done text. We also talked about a different color scheme.

The next step was to print it out in two sheets to get higher detail.

Printing it bigger allowed me to trace it in India ink with higher detail.
Cyan removed and line art cleaned up!

This is where the tour graphic initially went, I drew the text by hand, I think this was what the band asked for. The final rendition was simplified a little bit from this, without the reflected text and the additional lines on the top part.

I made a video for a song on this release ‘Chico Song’:

We debuted these songs on our East Coast tour, our next show is in Burnt Ramen in Richmond California, it’s probably the last Los Huaycos show of 2016. There’s a couple different fliers for this same show floating around but this is the one I made:

Alternative Tentacles

Alternative Tentacles 2016 catalog

I just noticed a couple Alternative Tentacles catalogs didn’t make it in the blog a few years ago, here’s the 2012 and 2013 ones:

2013

For the 2013 one I decided to go with some Wesley Willis art for the background since AT distributes his music. He did a Bolt Thrower song and I went to see them play in Oakland around that same time.

This year they asked me to go with a little bit lighter theme than the previous year. We went with an underwater ocean scene composite half-toned in the background, my own calligraphy, and some deconstruction of the original AT logo by Winston Smith.
