Man, I'm eating up these graphic designs with minimal washed palettes. Those are fantastic man, the last one looks so official and professional. Really good work. I've always envied people who can nail that clean style. My own work is so rough and gritty and dirty. Some people say it is my 'style' but that is bullshit. It's because I lack the confidence to do work like you're doing there. Fantastic work, sir.
If you are interested in acquiring a cleaner style then I highly recommend playing around in illustrator, I am really starting to enjoy that program. For a long time I tried doing stuff like this in photoshop, but it is just a bit too easy to cover everything in soft shades and textures, and you tend to forget how your basic shapes line up and actually work on the screen..
That being said, I think you go absolutely nothing to be ashamed of friend :)
Here is something new. It was just made as an exercise. I was not hired or anything. I wan't to make a few more fake band posters, just to get a better grip of making typography and illustration work together and then I plan to go out and do some pro bono work for some up coming bands. Perhaps corner that market.
