Another commission! And this time for a much loved, nay, favourite band of mine – SHRAG! We put them on at Atta Girl over a year ago, utterly fantastic. I first saw them at Indietracks on the outdoor stage. Amelia Fletcher was in the audience so I gave her an Atta Girl zine, seeing as the night was named after one of her songs.
Anyway, the poster, I kept redrawing the girl on the right and each time it became a little bit more like Helen from Shrag, it wasn’t intentional and it doesn’t quite look like her, but I did steal her fringe! I messed about with the colouring of this for ages too… That bow tie was pastel pink for ages, just looked too sickly, there’s something grittier about a dark red bow tie (but still firmly on the border of indiepopness). Very happy with the composition of this one, it was the first sketch idea I did and it just felt right.
If you want to attend the gig this is the event: Shrag 3rd March
