Preston brothers band banner

A new Project = many possibilities….

I’m considering on making band banners and selling them. There is quite a bit of planning
that goes into designing one. so this was definitely some good practice.
I decided to design a banner for my husband whom is in a band called, The Preston Brothers Band, based out of Frederick Md. The Preston Brothers Band consist of two musicians, Greg Ross and Bob Magers. Occasionally they bring in other musicians which consist of drums, acoustic, horns, you get the point. I was anxious to
do a favor and make this banner and age the appearance to give it that old circus banner look. I’m still trying to master it. But thought I’d share what i ended up with.

Enjoy !
Hope to see you at a show sometime in the future.
Check out downtown Frederick Md  for listings of performances.
The Preston Brothers Band  just recently performed at The Cellar Door in downtown frederick MD.  The preston brothers will be playing at Barefoot Bernies in Hagerstown Md.  Friday March 23rd !

on scraps of canvas till i did the final thing.

    Measures 6ft tall? WOW that is insane! Looks amazing though! Awesome job, keep it up. I’m sure they will sell well 🙂

    Thanks ! it was so much work but well deserved. I have already discussed some
    commissioned work with another band. I’ve told myself I must put aside two weeks so i have that extra cushion to prep and re-prep anything.
