"Klausen's left-field philosophies and twisted narratives beautifully underscore the stunning large-format artwork and contribute a greater depth of expression. A must-have for any music fan, artist, or aspiring graphic designer."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review, Pick of the Week

"The artist’s eclectic style choices, combined with a variety of computer-aided typefaces and hand-drawn graphics, make the posters exciting."
--Library Journal

"Stylized, suggestive, gorgeously composed, Klausen's art is the work of a metaphorist who sees the world from an admittedly skewed angle."
--The Seattle Times

An extensive look into the creative process through which artist Brad Klausen generates imagery for rock posters for Pearl Jam, Built to Spill, Queens of the Stone Age, and others. Included alongside the image of each finished poster are sketches and detailed commentary of the story behind the execution and concept of the individual designs.

Brad Klausen grew up in southern California and moved to Seattle in 1999 to begin a nine-year career as the in-house graphic designer for the world-famous rock band Pearl Jam. In July 2007 he launched Artillery Design, his one-man design shop where he continues to make posters for Pearl Jam, Built to Spill, Widespread Panic, and many other bands. He still lives in Seattle.
