I dig on Slater's line work but whenever he does a project for JW it just comes across as a Rob Jones knock-off. Silent Giants stuff to a similar extent.

At the risk of bastardizing this thread, has anyone documented other merch on this tour? It's been a long time since I've seen a Jack tee I'd actually wear and I need another poster like I need a hole in the head. It's also possible I overlooked it.

Did you read his explanation of the art work for the print:
It's meant to be a cross-over of sorts with Rob Jones's poster for the LA show. Both depict a Sisyphean Jack continuing to push his shifting sonic endeavors embodied as a giant moon. It always feels like Jack is somewhere else relative to the rest of the pack musically. Each new album is a letter back to us, hence my decision to place the gig info within the semblance of a stamp.

Ah, no I hadn't. And looking back at Todd's other JW prints they are distinctly his. Aside from that blasted monochromatic palette. Must everything serve a false god?

Nah, I think that is one that refers to himself as "Elduderino" well according to Merriam-Webster anyways.

Were posters from this tour, sold at the concerts, numbered? Specifically the Vancouver one?
