Anchondo is a local Omaha ska/rock band. The band was quite popular in the early 2000s, but these days they only get together and play for special occasions. The night before Thanksgiving is one such an occasion. When creating the poster I wanted something that had a bit of a retro/ska vibe while still bringing in a touch of the Thanksgiving holiday and the rock/party spirit that the band would bring to the occasion. Using the drum head as a half eaten “Thanksgiving plate” was a fun way to tie in the holiday, combined with some traditional ska patterns, the poster was a hit and the show was a party to be remembered.
To accompany the poster, I also created a cover photo for the Facebook event page using similar graphics.
