Here is what they had to say about the process...

Canyons of Static are a West Bend, Wisconsin based instrumental band who play epic, melody drenched rock. This posters offered a pretty unique challenge, in that the band only wanted their name listed on the poster, no show dates, etc. That’s right, just a straight up band poster. We thought it was a great idea and still can’t believe more folks aren’t doing this! The print started with a basic structure. The bottom 2/3rds of the print was filled with repeating 5 inch squares. The squares where filled with fine textures and a photograph that Nadine took in my hometown, Dyersburg, Tennessee. Once the structure was established, we broke away from the system, adding large blocks of texture and some unexpected colors. The end result is a massive cluster of structure and disharmony.
