Best Show-Poster Artist

Frida Clements

By day, Frida Clements is the senior graphic designer for Seattle Theatre Group, doing concert posters, among other duties, for the Moore and the Paramount. She spends her spare time the same way, supporting the musicians she loves most. This year the lucky artists benefitting from her work included The Tallest Man on Earth (aka Kristian Matsson), whom she portrayed on a Sasquatch! poster lazily slumped in a canoe with a guitar dangling in his hand; and, for a show at the Moore this week, Joanna Newsom, rendered in pen and ink in a flowing red dress plucking the branches of a weeping willow like harp strings. The Moondoggies commissioned her for their merchandise—she drew a night scene with the band's name stretched across it; the "oo" depicted as an owl's huge eyes. Her style is clean, svelte, and intricate; foxes, hummingbirds, buildings, and railroads are captured so beautifully you'll want to hang them in your living room. And you can! She'll be showing at Bumbershoot's Flatstock this year; her work is also available at Sonic Boom Records and Annie's Art and Frame in Ballard. —Erin K. Thompson drawntotheleft.com
