It's Lucy's Night at the big theater, and we are in the ritual of getting ready. I like entering a world, presenting a way to the viewer.
I remember the girls getting ready back then and I loved sitting with them before take off. I was too grounded for Tarot or astrology, but now I appreciate their ability to create story.
I hear your voice in soaring, trancending, upward movement. This yearning expression is what gets humans "out."
I would like to honor the viewer in the electrical textures of guitar rich rock. These aren't numbered prints we're making but I took inspiration from this framed illustration by Scott Musgrove, as an object one collects, embossed and framed, and also in what this cascade of petals does for us.
I remember you telling me years ago when I worked on your logo, "We want something kids will carve into their desks." For this poster, I hope to make somethig people would hang on thier wall.
The goal is to mark this moment in time for Candlebox, in our Seattle history. For that, I like graphic elements framing the date. The moon will be a waxing cresent on the night of November 6, 2021. That fits well in the design. Here are some inspirations for a special night.
I have only blocked in the invitation on the mirror above, as a placement piece, but I will give that part more time next, as well as these points:
One of the next elements to finish are the text borders framing the mirror. A rock poster should have hand drawn lettering. I wanted you to see how the words frame the poster but these are still in pencil. As with your original logo, I am inspired by Aribic calligarphy. The newest lettering will be on the smokey side of flame.
Listening to Lucy on headphones again, I wrote down the word "Sinuous," which led me to sign waves and these amazing perlin noises.
