The Magnetic Fields - A2 silkscreen concert poster
Screenprinted poster designed and hand printed to commemorate The Magnetic Fields' performance at End of the Road Festival 2022.
Back at the start of lockdown 1, I was still recovering from illness, things were super stressful and there was a lot of well deserved anger at our government's actions. The wife and I were spending an evening doing a jigsaw and listening to 6 Music.
A song was played, only short, the lyrics of which were: 'Billions laughed and no one cried, the day the Politicians died.'
It gave us both a good laugh and released a lot of tension, just at a time when it was really needed.
Anyway, this poster is me trying to convey that mixture of momentary calm and joy during a period of uncertainty and stress.
Paper size: 594mm x 420mm (A2)
