“We’re not good at being dark,” explains MUTEMATH singer/keyboardist Paul Meany about the band’s latest release, “so we wanted to see how far we could go into creating something glaringly bright.” Reedicus captures that creative spark in his high-spirited rendition of MUTEMATH’s Odd Soul with vibrant colors and a brilliant sense of spontaneity.
MUTEMATH was releasing another album and was going to make a stop in my home town on the Odd Soul album tour. I wanted to create a poster that would be an attempt at illustrating what an Odd Soul would look like. I wanted to bring out the band’s New Orleans roots and since the band always seems to take the stage dressed in ties, a figure in a suit seemed fitting. The soul is in the middle of transit and not sure if it’s coming or going in an effort to add to the tension of what an odd soul would look like.
Be very clear when getting a third party to trim the posters down. Had a mishap that reduced the margin by 0.5”. Posters still turned out great but wont fit in a standard 18×24”frame. Life goes on.
