SOPHA Poster by laresistance SOPHA Poster by laresistance
Poster I made for an upcoming concert in youthcenter Kavka in Antwerp for Antwerp-based band SOPHA. They make sexy brass pop with hints of jazz, hiphop and funk. check them out here:

I used horns ( because they use a lot of horns ) and a botanical garden ( because their band pictures have been taken in a botanical garden ) and combined it into this. I chose funky retrocolours to add to the funk-element.

I like the motifs in this. Using them in this way makes you realize how relatively absent they are in music related illustrations.

I really, really like this. I've probably said this a few times recently but it's one my favourite things I've seen you do. It seems quite mature compared to your other work, which isn't to say that your other work seems immature. This just seems like a really neat piece of design.

thanks so much, man! yeah, I know what you mean. I try to get better, pay more attention to design. Learning more.
A lot of my stuff IS immature, but I feel I'm evolving and try different things and approaches. But I know what you mean and appreciate it a lot. The birth of this piece was kind of natural and easy. After 6 or 7 hours contraptions kicked in. When I heard the band, I thought: horns. Their band pic was taken in a botanical garden so that had to be in there as well. and their guideline was: make it funky. so I went for retro colours. I took a shower and saw the image immediately in front of me. exactly like this. Deadline was a bit sharp as usual, but it went smooth nevertheless. I like how it turned out and how the poster is all over the city now. When I see it it's like somebody else made it. weird, but fun too.

I also dig your latest cover a lot. also getting a lot more mature, man. tight compositions !
bliss bliss

Oh wow, that's pretty cool. I'd get such a kick out of seeing my work plastered up all over the place like that.

Thanks a lot man! Glad you checked that out. I kinda wanna post that elsewhere but I'm saving myself for when I can post the full spread, because it's way more impressive than just the cover. I'm pprrreetty proud of it.

actually, my girlfriend told me first you had a neat new poster on your blog, I didn't even know yet.

I'm totally on the edge of my seat with popcorn, eagerly waiting for what you created ! looking forward to things is so much fun
