Here's the latest in the posters I've been doing for the Someday Lounge. My contact there said to make it sound like it was really cool that the band was from out of town, since nobody here would know who they were. I took a listen to the headliner's music and they had a good rock sound with some roots rock influences, so I felt like the state tree of Illinois (the white oak) would be a perfect illustrative element. Beyond that, I wanted a look that felt a little bit like old broadsides. I hunted through my fonts and found three that worked well together to achieve that look.

Big thanks to Daniel Soucy for all his help on this.
