From the artist:
I haven't done many prints for shows in NYC and wanted to consider the location more than I usually do for this piece. I was looking at blue note record covers and the line quality those illustrations have. The vibe on those covers feels close to the Black Keys aesthetic to me. I thought about places I've visited in the city, and how drawing the tenements could represent the band's beginnings more than the bright lights. The patterning in the fire escapes also gave me something to work with graphically. The cerulean blue background is especially powerful in person and this is one of my favorites for this year.
