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 !

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.

and then I had a look and had to agree.
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

if there's anything I've learned it's to never compromise about your work, your vision. not too much, that is.
if you change your own work in a way it doesn't look like your work anymore, just to suit the wishes of your client, then you might as well draw the simpsons all day in the korean Simpsons studio between 200 other colleagues that have the same job.

headbanging thank you !

Whiskey ice cream, or plain whiskey? Because whiskey ice cream would be -delish delish-.

Japan has squid and ox tongue flavors.

laresistance Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2010
no, really, whiskey ice cream ! ( otherwise I would have to freeze whiskey first before I could eat it :) )
it was really delish indeed ! never tried it afterwards, just hard to find

Japan is probably a beautiful country but they have some fucked up ways of life too, that's for sure
an Asian supermarket in my city sells Fish Lemonade. enough said.

I will go to the ends of Italy to have a taste of that. Italy pratically invented food.

Fish lemonade? That's pretty intense. But then again, the Japanese are the undisputed, if culinarily weird, masters of seafoo.

Italian food is good, but don't fall for the fancy nature; they probably sell crap too. everywhere there's good and bad food. But I admit Italy has some of the better ones :)

the japanese are no doubt the masters of seafood. I don't share their love for fish, but learned to appreciate a part of it.
everyone their own fancies

why thanks a lot, I spend quite some time on the color palette, glad it shows :)
I wanted to make the design even more simple, less detail, but I like it anyway now

Oh, and this looks a bit like Yellow Submarine. :D

thanks, yeah perhaps, but simplicity can be so powerful, I've learned
and haha, you're the 5th or 6th referring to Yellow Submarine ! thanks ! that's so cool.
I actually didn't see it until someone mentioned it, but those horns totally look like submarine-stuff and I bet the retro colours are important to :). there are worse comparisons
Reply
:iconpalomadyz:
PalomaDyz Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2010
Yeah, if course simplicity is important. I agree. But you have to find the middle ground between some much needed details and the abundance of them. You manage really well :)

And it's not a bad comparison. It's cool :D

tee hee, you're not the first one who mentions that reference :). I just love the deliciously retro psychedelic colours of the yellow sub. although not a direct reference here, it's a general influence on my life, which doesn't mean I'm walking around like an LSD creature of course

thanksies !
