Gillian Welch Poster

Gillian Welch Poster

Medium: Digital; including various pencil and charcoal textures.

Size: 10×12”

Problem: Promote a recent musical artist by means of a vinyl album cover or a poster.

Solution: I created a poster for the album, The Harrow and the Harvest by Gillian Welch. The music gave a haunting southern folk feel, and I alluded to the motifs of change and death by illustrating the content of a key song Six White Horses. The song begins with the horses coming to take the artist’s mother at her death. By the end of the song, the horses are coming for the artist herself.
