I've Got Eyes All Around....

I'm not normally one for the "oooh look at the famous people I met" type photos, but this night is one of those exceptions. I had the supreme honour of designing the posters for Devo's first trek through Toronto in 25 years. It was both a scary and amazing experience. They're doing two nights in town, this particular night (Nov.23) was devoted to the classic "Are We Not Men", night two (Nov.24) will be based around "Freedom of Choice". The perks of being a part of this is that I was able to get into the meet and greet which was also a scary and amazing experience, but I got to meet a band I've been a fan of for a number of years and they were a swell bunch of fellows (regardless of my extreme nervousness and lack of clear communication ability). As for the show, it was an amazing experience-end of story. Looking forward to night two...

Thanks abound foremost to the band for letting me do this, Shawna Samboceti at Warner Brothers for all her work being the liason between the band and I and to Bianca and Mike at Studio Number 19 for their usual top notch printing work. I'll have the second design for night #2 up tomorrow...
