All this poster talk has made me think of my favorite posterist:
These are only a few of my many favorites. Jason Munn is the mastermind behind The Small Stakes. I admire him tons and tons. His designs are simple/brilliant. Gosh, in my dream world, one day I will be able to design beautiful posters for all my favorite artists.
I won’t bore you with a list of my favorites, but I feel it appropriate to mention the designs he did for The Decemberists:
Oh, by the way, The Decemberists are currently holding a poster contest for their SXSW gig. Did you know that? Check out their site and pick your favorite! [p.s. your favorite should be the record player one.]
So much badass art errrrrrywhere. Love it.
