The Growlers rolled through San Francisco (The Warfield) last week and Matt Leunig accepted the task of recording this moment in history via a kickass poster. This is the 3rd poster he has done for their current tour and he was really happy to do so for a local show. Matt has enjoyed his run of prints with these guys and have tried to make them trippier and trippier each time.
Matt on the design:
The Growlers have always had a sloggy surf-rock sound to them that feels like a soundtrack to a trippy lagoon and what better character to have front and center then something reminiscent of “The Creature from the Black Lagoon“. I always thought he was such a badass cool looking character and had hoped to someday work it in to a poster.This print is a 5-color screenprint (18′ x 24′) with a run of 90 for the band, and Matt has available a small Artist Edition of 35 prints (signed/numbered) There will also be a very small run of 8 super hyper “foil” variants available as well as a couple BW’s for those interested in participating in the COLORING NOOK,
