Hand-drawn poster in tribute to The 1975, an English band formed in 2002 by Matthew Healy, Adam Hann, Ross MacDonald and George Daniel.

 

The band has a solid and loyal fan base who love their dreamy lyrics. They sing about memories and metaphors set in meaningful nostalgia. This collection of treasured moments is represented as kept on someone's imaginary shelf, where one keeps their secrets.

 

A tribute to their songs about the sensations you feel when you are deeply in love, we have the illustration here of a past lover sitting in a Russian doll, portraying the repeated heartbreaks that bring you to The One. The lover's face in the illustration is hidden, that way she can be interpreted as anyone you'd like them to be.

 

She is reading Jack Kerouac's poetry book that has "1 June, The 1975" written on the back, this is what was the inspiration behind the band's name, itself is written in smoke, as an ode to their biggest hit, Chocolate, a euphemism for cannabis. The 1975 Ford Consul car from the music video for the song can be seen as a toy car in the background in the print. 

 

As the whole illustration depicts the melancholia of precious instants, what is more relevant than a vintage camera? This particular one captured the four band members, locked in time in an instant in their own deep meanings and surrealism.
