Watsky Live from the Regency Event Poster

I wanted the illustration to feel vaguely like an urban city setting with light poles, wires and buildings to match the tone of some of Watsky's tracks.

To add some texture and depth I used a halftone pattern to mimic light coming from a street light.

The decision to use a varnish to "hide" some typography was to add an element of surprise that would require closer inspection to see what is there.
Check out the final varnish in action.
