Lustmord/Neurosis NecronomiCon Show Poster 2013

In 2013, I was asked to design a flier for the Neurosis / Lustmord show planned in conjunction with Necronomicon.  Joe Shea aka The joey Zoneeditor of the NecronomiCon Providence 2015 Program Bookhead and curator of Ars Necronomica art exhibit threw some ideas at me.  I riffed on them until we came up with something that pleased us both, a clutch of cultists hailing an old god from the abyss into the new world.
It was an honor to create the artwork and poster for apocalyptic soundscaper Lustmord and masters of doom, Neurosis, two musical groups for whom I've much love, appreciation and respect. The show was a rare treat for Americans, since Lustmord rarely performs on US soil.
It was like a baptism of sonic joy being in attendance and bearing witness to these two crushing bands doing what they do best in the company of fellow weirdlings and fanatics in the birthplace of the Lovecraftian mythos, Providence, RI.
