Mark Pedini gave me the opportunity to make a poster for rock legend Steve Miller Band for his live appearance on the television program “Austin City Limits” on Saturday, February 26, 2011. What immediately comes to mind for Steve Miller is Stanley Mouse’s Pegasus logo, so with Stanley Mouse “the man who drew the face on rock music” inspiring me, I looked for another archetypical big rock image to chrome-up Steve Miller Band with, and landed on the scarab. The scarab rolls Ra the sun across the sky each day and transforms bodies and souls, meanwhile, Steve Miller rises every day like the sun from a 1,000,000 radios. I colored the Ra symbol with psychedelic EyeFry blue and magenta, and overprinted with two separate coats of very translucent interference blue which catches the light ever so delicately and refracts in prismatic rainbow sparks, ever so gently slanted toward blue. I’ve included two detail photos below.
