Drive-By Truckers Poster Sacramento 2008

Concept and Process

In 2008, I went through a period where I wanted to sharpen up my compositional skills. I had noticed that one of the most frequent compliments my work received was “great colors.” This is of course not a bad compliment to get, as a good sense of color is as necessary as any other tool in the box, but I wanted not to rely on it so much. So I did a number of single color (often black) pieces in a row, to focus on composition more than anything else. This Drive-By Truckers poster is one of my favorites from that era. A single color print on heavyweight paper with a good tooth to it, its also designed as a bit of a jump-ft from the band’s song “Monument Valley”.

Above all, I wanted to give the band something a little different than the posters they usually get. Something with a 1920s silent western appeal.

Patterson Hood really liked these and complemented me on making them a piece of “fine art.”
