American-based graphic illustrator El Jefe Design was recently commissioned by Lou Reed to create a visually compelling poster for his July 2011 UK and European tour.  Each of the 500 screen printed posters are individually numbered and available for a limited time only from Reed’s official website – www.loureed.com/posters.

“Reed’s music was the inspiration,” says El Jefe Design’s founder, Jeffrey Everett.  “It had to do more with the whole story, his legacy, and the vibe about him. He has a truly dangerous aura around him, but he crafts this absolutely stunning and beautiful music. That was the mixture I wanted – beauty, love, desire with the feeling it will all go wrong in an instant.”
