Entry for LP/ Gary Clark Jr. Lollapalooza after show poster


As a rule, I, like many other Graphic artists/illustrators, am opposed to the crowd sourcing business model.

But as with most rules. I tend to bend or break them on rare occasion. One such occasion arose recently when I took part in a Talenthouse gig poster contest to promote a Lollapalooza after show featuring a couple of fast rising musicians, singer/ukeleleist LP and singer/guitarist Gary Clark Jr.

LP: New Artist, New EP, Amazing Voice

Chances are you might not recognize singer-songwriter LP by name (or initials),  but you've no doubt heard her unforgettable voice belting out her just released single "Into the Wild" in the Citi Bank commercial with the girl rock climber. Though she's already achieved some success as a songwriter and released several smaller label CDs, her just-released breakout EP featuring audio & live video versions of five new songs, and recent stories in Rolling Stone and on CNN confirm that she's an artist on the rise. From her recent live appearances at Austin's SXSW festival and on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, it's clear that LP delights in performing for a live audience. It's also clear that her voice doesn't need any studio wizardry to make an impression. LP is scheduled to appear at Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 4th.
