Art480 Poster Project

This was a poster based on works we learned in my history of graphic design class. The assignment was a
"first-hand understanding of an historic period in graphic design & creative application of that knowledge." With that being said my group chose Wes Wilson's "Captain Beefhart & His Magic Band,"1966. The piece is a combines psychedelic and art nouveau styles. 
We appropriated the poster and did a Michael Jackson Thriller concert poster instead. 
Done in Illustrator and Photoshop.
