MELVINS - Dublin 2008 screenprinted poster
Was pleased to get the opportunity to design my 3rd poster for the rock behemoth known as The Melvins. Whenever I think of Melvins artwork, my defining image is Kozik's "Houdini" cover...kids playing with freakish animals or bugs (my last Melvins print before this was very much a nod in this direction).
Around the time of this however, I'd been listening to a lot of earlier releases, such as Ozma, Bullhead etc. Although I love the recent Melvins stuff, I think there's a darker vibe to these releases, and I wanted to do something that reflected this yet still seemed "playful" in some way. However, what started out as a homage to the "Ozma" cover ended up as Crowley with shades flanked by goats....go figure!
