A tribute to Daft Punk by Eric Torres.
  • Tribute to Daft Punk
  • Listening to LCD Soundsystem’s “Daft Punk is Playing at My House”, it hits me - I need to draw up some art as a tribute to Daft Punk! So to celebrate the release of Daft Punk’s album Random Access Memories, I’m proud to present this listening party poster series.
     
    There are three versions – one for Thomas, another for Guy-Manuel and one featuring both. I kept the color palettes minimal, color contrast high and worked towards lots of directional geometry throughout the pieces. I wanted to create something different as a tribute for these guys, so I went with a “playing” card design as a way of emphasizing their iconic nature as artists.
     
    In recent times I’ve had the privilege of working with local musicians and bands on a variety of projects ranging from consultant work, art direction and design. Music has always been an important part of my life, so I’m always energized about the prospect of working such projects.
  • Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter (top) and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (bottom).
  • Daft Punk Tribute Screenprint / $40.00
    Each print is signed, numbered, sealed and arrives ready to party up a wall or office space.
  • To celebrate the release of Daft Punk's new album Random Access Memories, I decided to create some art based on this iconic duo.
  • I'm a big color freak, so the goal was high energy, high contrast, blinding intensity. Mission accomplished. Just take one of these prints into the sunlight!
  • Some of the detail work.
  • The design of the screenprint was created to be orientated one of two ways. King of Hearts at the top, or...
  • ...King of Clubs at the top.
  • Guy-Manuel
  • Thomas
