Red Run Art Series

PureGrainAudio.com Launches Red Run Art Series (No Blackout Dates) By Damon Kardon

Canadian-based music authority PureGrainAudio.com is proud to announce the launch of their Red Run Art Series (No Blackout Dates), a mixed-media collection created by artist Damon Kardon to celebrate the traveling circus that is the music tour. Kardon has various bands and solo artists whose music and words have influenced him and his art over the years. He set out to encapsulate in these works everything that a band or artist puts forth with a new album and accompanying tour. What better way to convey the creativity and excitement of travel than in a postage stamp representing this new voyage?

“Red Run” is a postage term describing an assignment to handle registered mail and “Blackout Dates” is a travel term meaning no time off from travel. These terms represent to Kardon, a clear vision each band or artist delivers in their new album and then expresses 24/7 in their subsequent tour.  Each piece he creates starts with a painted portrait of the band or artist. He then incorporates colors and elements of their new album into the background. Next, he takes that image of the finished painting and digitally alters and adds text through Photoshop.

The text seen on each postage stamp design incorporates new song and album titles as well as the names and dates of the tour. Each completed stamp design is a mixed-media collage representing the artist/band and their music. You shall see a new finished piece featured every week on PureGrainAudio.com for the entire run of the series. Through their boundless creativity and determination, these artists/bands have put their musical stamp on the world.

Package #1 of the series this week is based on Killswitch Engage and can be viewed at the following link: http://puregrainaudio.com/reviews/red-run-art-series-no-blackout-dates-package-1-incarnate-tour-stamp-ft-killswitch-engage
