The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Every time Jon Spencer keeps in touch with us for a poster we feel like we’ve to set our minds on a cool thing to come.
A lot of different inputs come to us from him and there’s a lot of brainstorming around ideas for the poster to realize.
We’ve just finished the printing of the upcoming European tour of JSBX that will start in a few days (check HERE) and we’re very happy about the result.
The inspiration came from a movie of 1971, “Blood from the Mummy’s tomb” featuring the wonderful Valerie Leon.
Then Jon suggested to create a sort of “extraterrestrial touch” to the idea around it mixing elements of the past with a sarcophagus in a Giger style.
So, we worked hard on the final image for what will be “Blood from the ancient ones” tour.
We already talked about the printing process, one color was missing, so let’s go with it.
Last color has been a very dark brown, we wanted something warm but not black to give more prominence to the metallic inks we used.
And thanks to a lot of color overlays we had a lot of chromatic solutions.
And details, lots of things to discover in the sarcophagus and print.
There are also 4 different inscriptions for the name of the band.
The first 2 are on the right side of the poster.
One is “The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion” on the wall, like an engraving at the top of the wall.
Then, the hieroglyphics behind the tour name (Blood of the ancient ones) are, again, the name of the band.
Read them vertically and You’ll see.
If You look at the Sarcophagus You’ll see JSBX at the bottom of it.
And last one is very hidden in the golden belt of the Queen
And this is the final look of the print.
It’s a limited edition of 135 pieces.
100 copies will be on sale at the merch table of JSBX during their European tour.
20 copies about will be on our webstore once the tour will be over, after the 29th of may.
