strawberryluna TODAY Show 2015 Toyota Summer Concert Series Posters!

http://www.today.com/popculture/today-summer-concert-series-2015-see-full-lineup-t17861Around these parts? Sometimes we have big announcements, and sometimes we have BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS.

This news counts as the latter. We have been hard at work for 4 months (and counting) on a dream project that’s really hard for us to believe even now is a reality. We are beyond honored, excited, thrilled and delighted to finally be able to share that we have been working with the iconic TODAY Show this year to create posters and identities for each and every one of the TODAY Show Toyota Summer Concert Series performances, broadcast live from Rockefeller Plaza all throughout the entire summer. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the TODAY Show Summer Concert Series as well. And both of us being lifelong fans and viewers of The TODAY Show, it’s an amazing honor to be an official part of the show’s history.

Below are our posters for the first 8 of more than 20 musical artists who will play on The Plaza this year, with the designs that we created for The TODAY Show being given away to fans as posters, used as VIP pass art and t-shirts for VIPs on Rockefeller Plaza during the TODAY Show Toyota Summer Concert Series shows. We will be sharing each of the posters and designs that we created for each musical artist appearing in the Summer Concert Series throughout the rest of the summer both here an on our own Facebook Page, Twitter and Instagram accounts so you can follow us there, ask questions and learn more about this super fun project. And you can follow along with The TODAY Show’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts too for behind the scenes photos and videos as well.

New release: Inara George silkscreened gig poster!

Inara George silkscreen poster: 2 color, all hand printed. Click for more info or to purchase.

Brand new releases are always exciting around here. Sure. But I’m *superduperextra* excited this month to share one of the new pieces that we’ve produced for Inara George, of the amazing band The Bird & The Bee, just one of a few new things we’re working on in collaboration with one of our favorite bands around this Fall.

This poster is a two-fer print, in a number of ways. First, this hand silkscreen printed poster covers 2  LA shows for Inara George this Fall on September 23rd at Bootleg Theater in and also at the Getty Center on November 5th with Van Dyke Parks. Second, we’ve used tricky overprints to get 3 bold colors from 2 screens. That’s our way! That’s what we love. We hope that you do too.

Simple, sweet but not always straightforward and deceptively complex. Hand silkscreened poster for 2 shows for the incomparable Inara George of The Bird & The Bee.

Mid-century throwback style always seems fresh, just like the lady herself. This is our all hand silkscreen printed poster for Inara George with hand mixed scarlet red and transparent cyan water-based acrylic screenprinting inks. Edition: 50, each of these limited edition posters are signed & numbered (by me, strawberryluna) Size: 16×22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

This poster will also be available on tour and at shows with Inara George throughout this fall, and especially her show at The Getty Center on November 5th, as well as also from my website here and also in my Etsy shop here.

New poster released: Sara Bareilles Tour poster & merch suite!

3-color silkscreen Tour poster for Sara Bareilles, click for more info or to purchase.

Oh yeah! We’ve got another set of new designs to share today, and this is a fun one for sure.

Back in the late spring one day I received a convo in my Etsy shop from the lovely Sara Bareilles about doing some new merch pieces for her upcoming tours. Holy smokes! What a sweetpea. After a few backs and forth talks with the team she has, and having the pleasure of seeing her play live as well as have a meeting in person with her in Pittsburgh we were able to get to work on a suite of designs for this amazing artist.

Huzaah! We worked to create a series of pieces, including a new Tour Poster, tote bag and tank top for Sara Bareilles’s lively merch table.

The Tour Poster (above) is available with Sara on tour as well as in her web store here, and we have a very limited number on our site for sale as well here.

New release! Bright Eyes silkscreen poster

New! Our 4-color, hand silkscreen printed poster for Bright Eyes, Click to purchase or for more info!

 

Brand spanking new and fresh off the press, it’s our new poster for Bright Eyes for his show at Stage AE in Pittsburgh,

The music of Connor Oberst and Bright Eyes is like a beacon of individuality, sweetness, anger, and passion, at least that’s the way I hear it. When I first began printing at the community studio Artists Image Resource (AIR) in Pittsburgh, Bright Eyes was on heavy rotation during Open Studio nights and his voice still reminds me of that awesome time toiling away in that funny early stage of learning printmaking where you learn to love mistakes as much as you do successes.

In homage to all things organic, wise and bright this fella is our all hand silkscreen printed poster for the singular sound of Bright Eyes with hand mixed midnight black, teal, acrylic screenprinting inks. Edition: 150, each of these limited edition posters are signed & numbered (by me, strawberryluna) Size: 16×22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

Now available at my website here or also in my Etsy shop here.

New poster released: Ingrid Michaelson at The Fillmore, San Francisco

 

Poster for Ingrid Michaelson at The Fillmore in San Francisco, by strawberryluna. (Click for more info or to purchase.)

 

Hey smartie-sweetie-cuties, what’s up?

Here is a “new” poster release! I say “new” in “quotes” as the show date was from way back in November of 2010 (that’s like a lifetime ago!), but I didn’t receive my copies of the poster until just a few weeks ago, and somehow posting this little baby up slipped from my to-do list. Apologies!

Onward & upward: We were commissioned by the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco to do a special show poster for Ingrid Michaelson’s show there on 11/1/10 with The Guggenheim Grotto. In the classic Fillmore tradition, they print and give 1,000 copies of the posters created for their shows away at the end of the night to the fans as a big thanks. And this is that poster for Ingrid Michaelson’s show.

And it’s now available for purchase from my website here and also from my Etsy shop here.

More about this poster:

The Fillmore hosted the multi-talented musician, signer / songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, and as their tradition, which dates back to the 1960s, they handed out copies of this poster to the audience at the end of the show. We’re so proud to be a part of this incredible legacy and are tickled to do this poster for The Fillmore & Ingrid Michaelson.

This poster is an offset print, not screenprinted, it was printed by The Fillmore for the show. It’s a 3-color, design with an edition of 1,000. Of that 1,000 given to the fans at the show and to the bands’ members. Artists’ Edition of just 75 posters, each one hand signed & numbered by me, strawberryluna. Size: 13w x 19h inches (33 cm x 48.3 cm). Paper: thick and heavy white stock.

This poster was given away at the show in San Francisco and I have just a portion of the run available (less than 70!) for sale here, so they will go quick!
