Monterey Jazz Festival Poster

This design takes its inspiration from the Miro exhibition I visited in the summer and a chance encounter with an old man who has been hanging around the jazz bars of Soho for most of his life. His story conjured up images of smoke filled cellars brimming with hepcats and beatniks.

I wanted to get a feel for a genre which influenced a lot of great 20th century artists like Miro, Pollock, Matisse and Mondrian, so I donned a beret and let the music guide my paintbrush.
