Finished Andrew Bird Poster
March 11, 2009
In the previous post, I put up the pencil drawing that became this six color screen print. I obviously took some artistic license with the representation of this species of bird-of paradise, and just tried to capture the overall character of it rather than being scientifically accurate. Also, I normally wouldn't cave in and use such an easy image: that of a bird for someone with the last name of Bird. Since, however, a variation of this image is part of the artwork for Noble Beast, and knowing that Andrew liked the image enough to use it on some posters for his Carnegie Hall and Civic Opera House shows, I decided to indulge a bit.
