Pearl Jam Poster

There's a story that goes with this piece.  First off, I'm a HUGE Pearl Jam fan.  One of my all-time favorite groups.  I have over 300 of their songs on my ipod.  Yes, 300.  I have dozens of live & bootleg stuff over the years.  Plus I'll buy any single or cover they do.  Songs like "Last Kiss", "Solider of Love" and "Fortunate Son".  And I love classic rock like the Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, etc. etc.  I also surf the web looking for various art sites, font sites, design & trend sites.  A few weeks ago I came across the Ames Bros.  A design group from Seattle that did Pearl Jam concert posters among many, many other things.  I then googled "Pearl Jam posters"- and I was amazed.  Wow. There were tons of them from artists the world over dating back to 1998.  I thought: "I have to get in on this!"  So this is my first sketch of one of my favorite Pearl Jam covers.  I hope to have many more concert posters in the coming year(s).
