Warpaint | Elephant

Recently I was asked by a promoter to create a poster for an upcoming show featuring the band Warpaint. I knew the name, not the music. Usually, I do a little research into the band, their sound and what not to come up with the poster. However, for Warpaint... I mean c'mon, pretty easy to come up with something. Yeeeaaaah... I got shutdown and asked to come up with something else. Part of the gig? Yes.

So, I checked out their tunes and was blown away, I was pretty off the mark with what I had created. But, upon listening to them I fell in love. I heard "Billy Holiday" first, then "Elephant." Charming, mesmerizing, minimalist and right in my wheel house.

If you like that you should check out their song, which I'm 99% sure is a cover, "Billy Holiday."
