Poster for Odd Future, known for the manic vibe of their live show as well as their aggressively weird and weirdly aggressive lyrical themes, amongst other things. Particularly inspired by the mental image of EarlWolf, the image is meant to feel violent, off-kilter, and entirely comfortable with its own grossness.
