The UM Bowl is a very unique annual gig that Umphrey’s McGee plays in their hometown Chicago. The band plays four long sets, each a ‘quarter’ with innovative interactive features catering, as always, to diehard fans. Read a thoughtful take on UM’s pioneering efforts to cater to their most loyal and enthusiastic supporters about it here at mtvhive.com’s breakdown of the evening.
This was probably the most challenging print run I’ve done to-date, for a variety of reasons both expected and out of the ordinary. Adding the flesh color was a late stage decision but made a big difference. Changing from a 65 lines-per-inch halftone to a 50 LPI also proved to be a good audible both for practical print-run reasons and to achieve the vintage colorized sports-card look we were going for.
Huge thanks to handsome lad Michael and my homeboys Keith and Ryan for helping me get through the print run faster to minimize paper expansion (and keep me in good company during what would have been a lonely weekend of printing).
