We could spend days looking at the hundreds of faces in Brian Butler’s epic SXSW Show Drawn zine.
If Brian Butler isn’t already on your radar, here’s the deal: Brian live-draws shows, brilliantly illustrating bands and fans with his quick and precise hand. He manages to capture the feel of the crowd in collages of wacky people. Austin’s South by Southwest draws a particularly eccentric crowd, so these 29 drawings truly are some of Brian’s best.
The zine’s cover is a two-color screenprint on gray French Paper, and the 16 inner pages are high quality digital laser prints. The folded zine measures 9 x 5.75″.
Bands featured in the zine include Little Dragon, Dirty Fences, The Shrine, Power Trip, DJ Shadow, DJ Sober, Trash Talk, Cerebral Ballzy, Donovan Wolfington, Mozes and the Firstborn, Liquor Store, Cherry Glazerr, Machine Drum, Bent Shapes, Black Lips and more!
The first 25 zines come with a miniature print and three pins featuring images from Brian’s sketchbook—perfect for the pocket of your jean jacket.
