I’m not saying we caused the Coronavirus pandemic, but 2020’s SXSW was the first major festival to shutter under the weight of the outbreak. The poster I did for that year, without any prior knowledge or sense of what was coming now, seems oddly prescient… so it was a sheer, cathartic delight to be asked to come back and capstone this weird and terrible time and create a new poster for Comedy in 2022. Something we all so very much need in our lives, Since we had time to see that last poster in context of the times, this one had to be a bookend response to it. There was just no other way, and the concept was immediate: explosive growth and blooming flowers everywhere. A laugh hiding in the chaos like a little frog wearing a crown. He’s in there waiting for you to find him too.
