Back in 2015, in one flight of madness or another, Alisha Jade decided to run their own damn Comic Con. With
blackjack! and hookers! cheap tables and free entry!
Being a friend, I helped out a little, which included coming up with the key/poster art to advertise the event. I was given the freedom to just do whatever so long as it worked, so that’s what I did.
Perhaps it’s a smidge abstract but it worked well for us. A few of the little airplanes got cut out and posted around the event space to serve as guides to attendees (the SLQ Edge is a really great space but somewhat buried amidst other government-owned blocky concrete buildings)) and a little hue shifting gave us an assortment of colourful posters to spread about. They were quite eye-catching so hopefully that did the job!
There was only the one event ultimately but I suppose knowing it could be done did eventually lead to Comicstreet. I even reused this art shifted to yellow for Comicstreet when I needed some announcement art real quick! No effort is ever truly wasted. 🙂
