“Summer Print-athalon 2011” culminates with my Soundgarden, San Francisco poster. There’s so much symbology in the details of this poster, that I think it’s more fun to let you figure it out. So I won’t say anything here. Overall theme is a soothsayer; I feel a lot of Soundgarden’s lyrics are broad and mystical – having a prophetic quality. The figure is one of my Evil Masonic Voodoo Zombies (perhaps a more serious, 33rd degree version).
God this show rocked! I love when the poster and the stage coincidentally (or synchronistically) match. During “Black Hole Sun” the eye in the forehead of the skull grew into a big black dot like the poster – and then turned into a film projection of the sun with an edge of coronal mass ejection – it was veeeeeery cool.
