Episode 73: Chelsea Beck Brings Her Badass-Children’s-Book Style to Show Posters and Tour Tees

Chelsea Beck illustrates show posters, t-shirts and other items for musicians like Mitski and Diet Cig. She brings her signature style into all of her work, which is a bit whimsical and could be called “badass-children’s-book”; she also includes dog “Easter eggs” in her pieces. In this episode we talk to Chelsea about developing her style, her inspiration and process, the downsides of working in an area you love, and what requests from clients she’ll refuse.
