Craig Oldham Poster

We recently had a brief to create a poster for a visiting talk about art direction, which will be given this coming Thursday by Music design agencies art director Craig Oldham. The brief was to create a completely illustrated A3 poster that focuses on a detail or concept from Craig's website:
My idea for this poster came from a minuscule aspect on Craig's website that said he was a prince fan (I hope  he didn't mean Prince William or that's this post knackered). I thought it would be fun to create a characterture of Craig in full Prince attire and imagined the title being a bone of contention between artist and designer. I really enjoyed working with a limited colour pallet for this project and think It might be a way that suits my style in the future.
