Natural Pragmatist Growth

Here's the flyer for the Yukon show at The Tower on June 14th. The colors came out way lighter and happier than I ever thought I was capable of. It's very SUMMER-ISH. I'm actually really happy with the whole thing for a lot of reasons.

The request for this flyer was pretty insane and awesome. I was going to paraphrase it because I thought it was gone forever, but I found it in my trash folder, so.... here it is:

Oh man, you're totally going to hate me after reading all this. I'll totally understand if you don't want to take on the job, but this is what I have in my head...


Clan of the Cave Bear
Self Destruct Button
Double Dagger

Thursday June 14
Tower 2012
9512 Madison Ave


Okay, I actually have ideas for this one. It's going to be based around this series of prank calls. They are done by a dude called Longmont Potion Castle. You can easily find his stuff through googling.

The main image should be a guy on a telephone (not a cell phone) who is cracking a big ol' bull whip. He should look something like the guy in the orange shirt in this picture.

If any of these things can make it into the background, it would rule.

A peacock
Simms St. / Oak St. - Intersection street signs
A giant squid
A UPS truck

Let me know if you're up for it!

There was an addendum that he had to be wearing cleats. I actually had a lot of fun trying to figure this out. The biggest issue was the five mismatched difficult band names. One really short one, a really long one, a bunch with multiple words... to make them all legible and look cool, I played with that the most. I had to draw the dude maybe six or seven times before settling on that pose, which only now I realize it's somewhat similar to the guy in the Sleepytime Gorilla Musuem flyer. Here's the link to Longmont Potion Castle.

This show is going to be great. If you haven't seen Clan of The Cave Bear play live, you're missing out. Ditto for Self Destruct Button. It's kind of old news, but they have a new split 7" out. I don't have one and haven't heard it yet, but I'm sure it slays. If you're reading this you should come to the show. Especially if you live on another continent. North East Ohio has open arms. Embrace.

The Gomez calls from LMCastle are the best ever.
