Stanley Donwood for Glastonbury 2011 PrintJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 31 May 2011
Stanley Donwood, the man behind most of Radiohead's imagery, has finished his annual Glastonbury Festival print and its available on his website as we speak. You may or may not know, Glastonbury in England is the biggest (just in name value) and probably best music festival in the world each year.
This year's headliners on the Pyramid Stage over the 3-night festival are Coldplay, U2, and Beyonce. Maybe if Radiohead was playing we would have flown over.
As Donwood notes of the image, "It ended up okay, or so I like to think. As usual it was very difficult to get right, and some of the pictures I made whilst trying to get it right were so bad they surprised even me, and I'm used to the sorts of horror that I'm capable of. I've been making artwork for Glastonbury Festival since 2002, and the pile of rejects is considerable. Last year I did the thing with the big glow-in-the-dark moon, which was fine, but an earlier version looked like a fucking beer mat. Anyway. There's this year's, coming soon to a t-shirt and a programme cover. I hope people like it."
The Glastonbury Festival 2011 edition is printed on uncoated 200gsm Edixion Challenger stock, on a massive Heidelberg Speedmaster press. Each print is signed, numbered and stamped with the Slowly Downward Manufactory pointy-toothed bear.
