When the infamous Zoltron asked me if I wanted to make a Primus poster this season and Green Elvis was mentioned there was no way I could say no.  It was 24 years ago in 1994 when I made my first Green Elvis rock poster …for Primus at the Fillmore.  It’s always been one of my favorite posters, complete with Day-Glo inks – if Green Elvis was going to make a comeback Day-Glo had to be included.  Green Elvis is again portrayed as a classic Christian icon, but in this new version I got in pretty deep with the classic geometry and symbols which is more related to my recent artwork and icons.  Its a nice hybrid of my old and new art.

I was having a great time making the image, I knew immediately it had to be a special print too.  I needed metallic, fluorescent, and non-fluorescent inks and and some unique printing & color know-how to make this poster – I called Chuck Sperry, he’s the master of that recipe, he’s printed Green Elvis before, and we’re old friends.  I really need to thank Chuck here.  He accepted the project and squeezed it into his crazy schedule, he also turned it up to “11” with the technique – meaning these are some really beautiful prints.  We had a blast making the posters over a few days, the inks and color are perfect – sizzling but scaled back fluorescents, the famous hi-test Hangar 18 silver, and a slightly transparent black.   A huge thank you to Primus, Zoltron, and again, Chuck Sperry for making this poster possible.

This poster looks awesome in blacklight!

I designed my Donald Trump Stop Hate posters for the 2017 Women’s March in Oakland and San Francisco. The original posters were hand-made silkscreen prints distributed to the crowd at the Womens March, stapled to sticks and used as signs. I have received a lot of requests for this poster and thought I would share the image for free. Please print-out for personal or protest use, but don’t sell them – thank you. www.chrisshawstudio.com
