Said the Whale is definitely one of my all-time favourite bands. I find their music so visually inspiring, especially when working on a painting or another piece of art. Recently I created a poster concept including some lyrics from Said the Whales' song 'Lucky', as a Christmas present for a friend of mine who is also slightly obsessed with them. I used mixed media on cardstock, including a variety of papers, markers, as well as some silkscreening. I included pictures of a few of the steps I took, as well as the final framed copy. Hope you enjoy!
