May 2014 Art Attack poster

I was asked to make something with nostalgic music imagery, so I went back to the 1940’s. Don’t remember the name of this particular group, but the photo had a lot of detail. I think I found it at Wikimedia commons, which is a great resource for all kinds of random imagery.

I am influenced by ’40’s poster design ( google “OWI posters”) but the band posters from that era had their own look and feel. There was a lot of angled text, stylish type faces and music notes so I incorporated all three. Extensive hand-coloring on this one.
