Cricket's Epic Sweater Party

Cricket is the patron saint of Jumbo’s Clown Room. Now, at this point, you might be asking yourself – what is Jumbo’s Clown Room? Jumbo’s is a small Rock n’ Roll bikini bar located in a strip-mall (no pun intended) in Hollywood, CA. Jumbo’s is famous for many things: Courtney Love used to dance there, lore has it that David Lynch was a regular at one time, and that he even penned the script for his film Blue Velvet in the back corner booth. Storied history aside, Cricket is currently one of the most popular acts at the Clown Room, and celebrates her birthday there each year. This past year, it was an ugly-sweater themed birthday party, and she asked me to do a poster for it.
My immediate reaction was to make paper-dolls…
(I know, I’m super-macho.) This idea would allow her
fans to draw and color unique sweaters for her paper-doll
to wear. We aimed for low costs and mass distribution,
so I designed a single color flyer which could be easily
photocopied on the cheap, on a variety of colored papers.
