Street Dogs


For the uninitiated, the Street Dogs is the current band of the original singer of the Dropkick Murphys. Now, I loved the shit out of that first album in high school, so I was pretty excited to do a poster for this new group. In fact, it was probably because of my fond memories of being a nerdy scene kid that I decided not to go my usual conceptual route with visual puns and silly references, and instead tried to create an iconic image that would appeal to the fans of the genre. No real cleverness this time around, but hopefully it's still cool just the same.

It's hard to see, but the map in the background is of Boston, a requisite reference for a band that spends so much time time singing about the city. I've got a few friends in various stages of moving to Boston, so I would like to formally dedicate this post to them.

Jordan, Liz, and Sara: enjoy the city, and I'll see you all soon.
