The Black Keys asked for a bluesy poster that captured the authentic roots of Beale Street, Memphis. My poster: a moment from the illustrious history of Beale Street, the roots of blues and rock and roll, with the texture and warm colors of an approaching May night as the shadows lengthen along the front of the pool hall on Beale.

I’ve updated this post with images below of the actual poster. The digital image which was previously in this post is at the bottom of this post (should you like to reference it).

FYI – I sometimes post a digital image before I have a chance to photograph the actual poster. This digital image is used to create the poster and is used to show the band what I will make – before I make it. When possible, I like to show the actual photograph, like the one just below, so people can actually see what the poster looks like. Enough said. The show was awesome last night!

“They wanna get my
Gold on the Ceiling
I aint blind
It’s just a matter of time
Before you steal it
It’s alright
Aint no guard in my house.”
I’ve been playing Gold On The Ceiling – and it’s become a sort of theme song.
With the Firehouse’s innovation of the use of Gold and Silver metallic inks, which we started using almost 18 years ago,
the gold on the ceiling lyrics have a special place in my heart. The Black Keys are written across the gold ceiling in my poster.
I also created a custom Black Keys wallpaper and dress pattern which works throughout the design:

Here’s the Black Keys poster release. Posters will be released tomorrow on this post.

I reserved 70 posters from the regular edition of 260 on pearl silver paper, to be specially released as uncuts. I’ve noted which numbers in the edition of 260 are cut and which are uncut (below).

I am also releasing two rare variant editions of 30 which are only produced and released in uncut form.

I left a little room around the edges for these uncut versions – as the cut versions left some of the image off – so that explains the difference in sizing.

I will be making a very limited release of this poster (cut and uncut, and variant uncut editions) on Sunday, February 12, 2012 at a random time.

ATTENTION: Click for link to Poster Release – Sunday, February 12, 2012 at a random time.

Tonight is the first show of the SOLD OUT three night stand at Alexandra Palace in London. Chuck Sperry did a poster for each night, and he here’s what he had to say about the set: “I was inspired by The Black Keys song ‘Gold on the Ceiling’ which comes across to me as a song about fate and success.

The posters depict The Three Fates – Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos. Clotho spins the thread of life, Lachesis measures its length, and Atropos cuts the life thread at the end.

I printed the lifework in Eye-Fry Blue on the Fluorescent Red figures. The optical effect is very bizarre. There’s an illusion of depth in the figures that looks like they are floating on the paper.”

I will be making a very limited release of this poster (cut and uncut) on Sunday, February 12, 2012 at a random time.
