Richey Beckett's Thread

General art-related discussion.

Postby FrankBooth on Tue Oct 10, 2017 5:57 pm

I'm extremely proud to announce that I'm taking on the role of 'official poster artist' for ROADBURN 2018! Here are some words I wrote for their official site.. ""Being invited to create visual artwork for this year's Roadburn is a tremendous honour. Roadburn isn't just another heavy music festival, it's something that over the years has evolved into a pilgrimage of a worldwide community; a celebration of music, the creative spirit and camaraderie.

The artists who've gone before me are some of the most talented and passionate people I know.. so to be handed the torch, knowing how much it means to them, is something very special indeed. I'm very excited to create and share the ideas I have for Roadburn '18 over the coming months leading towards the festival." The image above is a small teaser I created for the announcement and I have a lot planned for the months building up to the festival. Check out their page @roadburnfest where you can read about the incredible bands who've been announced already. This year's line up is to be curated by the great @jbannon and we're being treated to two incredible sets from the mighty @converge. Much to look forward to!

Richey Beckett Pixies :pint:

I’m honoured to have been invited to create a poster for the legendary @pixiesofficial for their show tonight in St Louis. This is a six colour screen print including silver ink on speckletone paper. These are available at the show in strictly limited numbers, and I’ll have a small number of artist copies available at a later date. Thanks!

Travelling home after what has been an incredible few days in London.?? Thank you so much to the @metallica family for their kindness and hospitality! Being invited for a sit down interview with James - which became a long form conversation about art and the nature of creativity - is something I’ll always treasure. Thank you @papa_het_ ! An honour, a pleasure and always an inspiration. Topping off the day with round two at the O2, the show was UNREAL. A metal masterclass to the largest capacity crowd the venue has ever seen, it truly blew my mind - fists in the air and jaws on the floor! (Thanks also to Samwell Tarly for taking a well deserved break from the Citadel to join in the fun

A little time lapse of my pen and ink work for @mastodonrocks ‘Cold Dark Place’ artwork. Dip pen with real walnut ink. If you haven’t gotten around to checking out the record yet, I encourage you to do so - it’s incredible. Also, picture disc vinyl was released a few days ago - it’s a limited run so if you want it now’s the time to grab it!
