I made this poster for Dead Beat, who specialize in all things music in Dallas, Texas.

This will be the first in a new series of concerts at the historic Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff. If you don't know what the Texas Theatre is, one quick history lesson is that this is the theatre Lee Harvey Oswald went to after he apparently shot JFK and then Officer Tippit. This place has been extremely close to being demolished multiple times. Thankfully it is still around and I've gotten to see some really great films there, like Enter the Void and The Conversation.

When I was asked to do this, I was given complete artist freedom to come up with just a summer themed poster. I immediately thought of bad surf genre films and the greatest surfer to ever live, Satan. So here they are combined. I drew out everything with pen and ink, then added the color and text digitally.

I am unsure if there will be any posters printed. If so I will post info on how to get one. If you are in the area, check out this show.
