It’s been a while since I posted a mini-music poster. The frequency of posts was intended to be every other day, but in hindsight that was way too ambitious for my schedule. And then sometimes life throws you curve balls while you aren’t even looking and interferes with your best intentions. I’m not saying this to make excuses, but to say that I still intend to finish all 50 posters, it just won’t happen in 100 days.
Anyhoo, on to today’s poster:
A friend turned me on to the Canadian singer/songwriter Hayden shortly after the album Skyscraper National Park was released in 2001. I loved the bare simplicity of the songs on that record. There must be something about the cold mountain air in Canada that produces the brand of music made by artists like Hayden, Neil Young, and others. Quiet, brooding, simple, catchy.
I was playing around with some Cinema 4D tutorials and created this low poly landscape which I thought with some tweaking could make a cool mini-poster for Hayden. I changed the trees into scraggly Canadian pines, added some mountains and a black bear, and placed some 3D text coming up out of the lake. Done and done.
This is mini-poster #10 out of 50. One
every other day whenever I can get to it + a blog post about each. For a rundown on this project, go here. I’ve also created a Spotify playlist where I am adding tracks from each of the bands as I create their Mini-posters. Subscribe to it here. Follow me on Instagram to see occasional in-progress work on the mini-posters.
