NO THEFT x Trevor Davis

(click to zoom)

I love working for the Q cafe. Have I said that enough? I just finished my first all hand drawn poster. This concept came to me while I was looking at my old 1st grade lunch box that I littered with outer space stickers and decided to draw a couple planets and this space ship. I then saw in my head a special 70's type treatment and the colors worked perfect. The whole time I was bringing in the drawings into illustrator I was thinking to myself 'what would my friend Malachi do?' 'how would he do the composition?', this was an experiment of sorts that I had no idea of the outcome. After a couple friends looked at it and gave me their thoughts, I decided to commit to it, EVERYTHING would have to be drawn.

I'd say the oddest thing about this piece is that outer space is suppose to be dark! BUT I like that at the same time. I've started to keep little odd things in my work, things that kind of bother me, things that I wouldn't think perfect because it adds new character & it makes me look at the print in a diff way. I know it will expand my design perceptions as well. I'm always in for buffing up my theory.

Give Mr. Trevor Davis a listen HERE !

I've never seen anything like this from you. Dude, having outer space white might breaking the rules, but that what will set your design apart.
