Those guys in Sundress are pretty talented dudes, ain't they? They really are -- and not just on the music front.

Guitarist Kennon Talley, who also plays in Western Giants, is the man behind the above image that promotes his band's show on the all-Denton bill of Sam Robertson, The Hannah Barbarians, The Hope Trust and The Lindales at Hailey's Club in Denton on Sunday night. Hey, if the music thing doesn't pan out...

It's just an eye-catching design, what with its pretty, pastel colors, slight white-space background starburst and, um, revolvers? Sure. Why not? Sure gives the otherwise softy design a little added edge, no? Maybe a little irony, too.

Either way, nice stuff. And, hey, maybe if more revolvers came in pastel colors, there'd be fewer gun-related deaths. Or, conversely, maybe more because then kids would be even more attracted to them...

We digress.

Point is, it's a nice design. Nice work, Kennon.

Think your poster is better than this one? Want to see one of your designs get honored next week? Drop us an email with an image promoting an upcoming show right here. Cool? Cool. Thanks!

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
