In 2021, I worked with Stephanie Aubin, a graphic designer and teacher at Montreal's Dawson College, to create a mandate for her students:  "design a band/album poster promoting a real show or tour that took place (or will take place) in Montreal. You may choose any musician as long as the venue is local. The show can be virtual show if hosted locally."

I offered to print and sell the four winning posters, and each student will receive 50% from the proceeds of each sale. The posters are available in limited quantities. 

Stephanie's students created a variety of posters, each reflecting their personal approach and style. This one, by Johanna Gamarra, for the band Death Grips, was one of the four finalists. Death Grips is an American experimental hip hop group formed in 2010 in Sacramento, California

I asked Johanna for a bio and this is what she said:

"Johanna Gamarra is a graduating student from the Illustration program at Dawson College. She was born and raised in Lima, Peru and later. immigrated to Montreal, where she resides. She specializes in gouache and watercolor illustration, although she is very comfortable with digital mediums such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. As an artist, she believes in conveying a story in each illustration and aspires to one day make her own graphic novels."
