After designing three posters for Kings of Leon‘s summer tour (which you can see here), the band asked me to come back and take a swing at a couple of their fall dates. This was a bit of a challenge as I felt like I had exhausted every good concept I could come up with to incorporate cherries, a visual element that the band really wanted to include in all the posters for this tour. While it would be easy to simply add a cherry here or there just to meet that goal, I’m always driven to attempt (at least) to be clever. So I went back to the well and came up with two concepts: this one, where I imagined the band in a paint-by-numbers scene poolside in the location of the show with one marker (Cherry Red) left open to give the composition some depth and direction. Further, I left the coloring mostly unfinished to bring the viewer in to it and make it feel a bit more energetic and interactive.
