Hand-drawn poster honouring The National an American rock band of Ohio natives that formed in BrooklynNew York City.


Matt Berninger, twin brothers Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner, as well as brothers Scott Devendorf and Bryan Devendor. 


The talented band really took off with their albums Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers, Cherry Tree and Alligator.


As an ode to this success, all three are part of the drawing.The alligator is holding the collection of songs in front of the cherry tree.
The cherry tree has an important role in the print because it represents the community of fans of the National, which holds the same name. 
The dreamlike narrative with the alligator is a nod to their brilliant album Sleep Well Beast. He is wearing a cloak as a direct reference to the fact that Matt Berninger is often called "the Dark Lord" by his bandmates, gaining that nickname thanks to his deep baritone pitch.


The band's name here is in a spiral of stardust, adding magic to the illustration, something else which is close to close to the band's heart, themselves fans of fantasy.
