The Decemberists

It's no secret I'm a huge fan of the Decemberists and I was fortunate enough to be asked by them to do a gig poster for their Vancouver BC show (occurring tonight and again tomorrow night). The concept is inspired directly from their latest album, The Hazards of Love, and visually it's inspired by the lush forest and landscape paintings by the stop-motion master, Jiří Trnka.

I'll have a small stock of these at Comic-Con, which again starts tomorrow. Whatever is left will go in the store after the show.

Don't forget! Fleet Street Scandal will be at booth #1316. See you at the show!

ps: Coraline is on DVD now. Go get it! You can even watch it in 3D, although I can't guarantee the quality of the 3D is any good.

chris, i love it! i'm at the ljc learning lab this week, let me know if i can send you some $ for a copy?

Chris Turnham said...

Glad you guys like it! Hazel, i'm so sorry! The print ended up selling out at Comic-con. But if it didn't sell out at the venue it'll probably go up on the band's website. I'll let you know.
