festival poster

2020 is a strange year in history. Many festivals around the globe was either cancelled, or at least heavily modified. The Aarhus Jazz Festival managed to morph into the Sommerjazz festival, which i had the pleasure of illustrating the poster for.

The usual festival is massive, and reverberates all through the city. This year was more modest, but i wanted to invoke the feeling of a musical city.

The roofs of the city made for a fantastical Aarhus skyline. I had to change up the cityscape a bit to fit a few notable landmarks. It is a fun challenge to make a charicature of a city instead of a person! The musicians on the rooftop are both young and old. The festival has always been a meeting of generations for me. Everyone with an interest in living music, audience and musician alike, comes out on this magical time of the year.
