A conceptual poster for the New York Halloween Parade. The main theme was about how New Yorkers leave their inhibitions at home and bring out their “wild” side during the famous Halloween parade. The wild ‘beast’ emerging out of a man in a suit stresses this point. On closer look, the man’s silhouette is actually the skyline of the city that exists along the route of the parade. The beast is metaphor for several things including the historical implications of how the event had begun as an artist’s parade that developed into a parade celebrating alternate sexuality and which had later degenerated into a commercial marketing exercise.
Hand-drawn illustration and type, and printed with silk-screen, every print is different with limited prints still available on request.
