So last week Baltimore was hit by a totally badass thundersnow. The accumulation wasn't much by most standards, but it was absolutely crippling by the usual Maryland standard. I spent my two days off working on this poster, while watching Tears of a Black Tiger and Django on Netflix. The inspiration is pretty straightforward in this case.
There's something about the combination of punk music and the outlaw imagery of spaghetti westerns that I really love. I don't think I've got it entirely out of my system yet, so let's see where this goes. I really tried to loosen up my inking style with this one. I want to be able to capture movement and energy, while maintaining strong, iconic lines. Hopefully this is a good step in the right direction.
If you're in Baltimore, and you are a fan of rocking out, I suggest you make it out to the show as well. Maybe I'll see you there!
