MUCH BETTER PHOTO ATTACHED!
Wow, first thanks to David Pache for this great rebound idea. Damn, this makes me feel old and I wish I had a better photo of my first design job, but this will have to do. I drew this poster for Panic when I was in college. The poster was done entirely by hand - no computer used until the final drum scan. Let me preface this with the fact that I was majoring in English and Philosophy - a career as a graphic designer hadn't even crossed my mind!
I was going for something like an early Fillmore poster. To me, a dragon standing on top of the world was 'Widespread Panic.' I had been going to see the band since I heard them on the radio on 'Peach Jam' in the late '80's and really wanted to do a poster for them. I created the poster using art markers and it went through many revisions. It was my first design job and I can't think of a better way to kick-off my design career. I was paid in tickets and backstage passes, worked for me!

awesome to see this, and great job!
Thanks @Neil Tasker, amazing how much things change. The thought of doing a 24x26" poster entirely by hand right now seems very daunting!
What you all can't see by this photo are the frequent uses of white-out, used to cover up the rounds of revisions and suggestions by the band themselves. Love it Steely!
I had a ton of art classes, but absolutely no design classes at this point. It was funny to design something and have no idea what I was doing, but knew what I wanted the end result to be. There are layers upon layers of paper, just to get this poster to the proper size. I laugh at it now, but it's still one of my favorite design pieces, because it became such a labor of love and although it didn't end up EXACTLY how I wanted, it was close enough!
