Hatch Show influences
These new illustrations were influenced by the Hatch show style, which is an American letterpress print shop that traditionally produced posters often for country artists', and have included work for Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams and more up to date, REM.
The first illustration - Steve Cropper came very quickly - often the best designs do - but it helped that I had a clear and bold idea of what I wanted to do. The second, a little more subtle, but worked just as well.
