Arctic Monkeys Poster
Illustration honouring Arctic Monkeys, an English rock band formed in Sheffield in 2002. The group consists of Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Nick O'Malley, and Matt Helders.
The hand-drawn print is based on two singles from their very successful album AM. Multiple award-winning, it came out in 2013 and has become one of Arctic Monkeys' most successful to date.
The illustration is inspired by the lyrics of Arabella matching her description in the song. You can spot the Helter Skelter around her little finger, the seventies head, the fact that she's made of outer space, her lips like the galaxy's edge, cheetah print coat, organic cigarettes and the Mexican coke.
There is a nod to Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High, with Arabella on the phone at three in the morning.
The typography is inspired by the album cover itself, featuring AM written out of the sound lines.
