KMFDM 2013 promo poster

KMFDM TOUR POSTER (War Bus)

As part of their promotional campaign for their upcoming tour, industrial group KMFDM commissioned me to come up with something appropriate.

Inspired by WW1 armoured mini tanks and modern anti-riot vehicles, I set about creating a hybrid more suited to the band’s image than the traditional tour bus. After creating a collage of elements in Photoshop, I then warped and re-shaped the chassis before re-drawing the finished product in ink. Final artwork layers composed in Illustrator.

For KMFDM‘s 2011 US tour, I was commissioned to create my own interpretation of Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’, using band front man and industrial legend, Sascha Konietsko, as inspiration for the main figure.

The illustration was subsequently used on a range of merchandise currently accompanying the band across the U.S. of A.

Media: Sharpie, Japanese calligraphic brush pen, Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator.
