Hugh D’Andrade for Burning Man

Artist Hugh D’Andrade created a number of illustrations for Burning Man 2015.  Burning Man is a desert event that takes place once a year.  It has been described as the following, “Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome” (taken from their website).  These installations were 20 feet tall, and they were featured as the entryways to the pavilion at the base of the Man.

Here is a video on the printing process:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apyAnA7m5Lk&feature=youtu.be

Hugh D’Andrade has experience in illustrating everything from skateboard designs to book covers, and his style was perfect for the Burning Man aesthetic – there is something delightfully whimsical while simultaneously creepy about it…
