I did this illustration for my good friend, Meher Steinberg. He had just finished his solo album using the pseudonym “Parkdale Vigoda” and in addition to designing the CD sleeve I put together this poster to accompany various music and t-shirt bundles.
As a youth I was a comic book fan (still am but in a less dedicated fashion) and I had a great time recreating the look and feel of a Marvel comic from the 1970s. I incorporated the song titles into the image as graffiti and took some liberties in my portrayal of Parkdale (I’ve never come across a burning trash barrel in Meher’s neighbourhood).
Subsequently, I was gratified to see the poster up in the bathroom stairwell of a local bar, it’s not the Louvre, but you have to start somewhere.
