Longtime readers (i.e. my parents) have no doubt noticed my poster concepts usually take some element of a band's history, style, or trivia, and play on it in (hopefully) clever ways. Well this one is a bit of a departure from that strategy in that I wanted to pursue some more abstract, less-literal subject matter. All of the big names do it, so I thought I'd give it a shot too.
I have always had a fondness for monsters, folk myths, and cryptozoology, but thus far, I've only expressed that in art a couple times. In the brainstorming process I began playing with Silly Symphonies-style, impromptu-woodland-jamboree imagery, and this was the resulting experiment. More of a detour than a new direction, probably, but fun nonetheless.
