This Poster/Flyer is a fun project I took on just a few days ago for a friend..
He is a great singer/songwriter and after seeing his performance (with might I add, open mouth and sparkly eyes) I just had to know his name, and then by chance we all bumped into eachother and well after a few beers and more guitarrcords on the moonlighted beach it was settled, I was going to do a fun'quick'poster for his humble gig at 'the round cube' at the palolem beach/goa/india. "Just whisk something togheter" I remember him saying. I ended up sitting hunched by a mosquito infested lamp and adding, removing and swearing at my icabillity to do something good. Trendy, clean, not to much details I said to myself, but then again that is my total opposite. When the fellow designstudents at school where busy making tone in tone cotton khaki dresses out of a catalouge of 'nordic' news I was making vintage brosch looking 'insects' to sew on pockets, sleeves and god knows what.
Anyways, just fun to show off how the 'humble' quite low budget, not to say free flyer turned out. He never even used it, the star that I was so proud of working for. I met him later the following day, kind of a bump in to eachother again and he was busy eating a (what is seemed like, extraordinary wet coconut). While he was wiping his chin, chewing and half spitting I showed him the flyer. Was that a spark in his eye? I studyied him for a moment, waiting for a sign. He was smiling, this uber trendy great voiced man! And then, clearing his throught "can I hold it, wow, alice, he he"a moment of silence and then his voice again(deep brasilian I might add)"it's so cool".
"But the gig never happend, I mean they cancelled it last night" I tried to hide my disappointment not willing to tell him that I had dreamt about becomming 'miss flyer girl' at the beach, getting orders from left to right and maybe even making a career out of it. What if I could have stayed at the beach, combining suntanned skin with straw hats and a pencil in my hand, well placed under a palmtree?
It was time to make a smooth and 'cool' exit, and I managed to do so, pretending that this was something I just really whisked up in an hour or so and leaving the 'star' behind me with his coconut.
