Wow, it’s been a while! Sorry I’ve been a lazy bag of bones when it comes to these gigposters. They’re a bit of a time suck, buy cialis 20mg and now I’ve got a little time to suck, so here’s this week’s installment! Welcome to the letter “G“.
I really love the off kilter way the type is set on these posters. They’re delightfully grungy…
There is only one poster under Gentle Mystery but it’s a great one. The colors and rough shapes are really beautiful.
Ooooo! The hand drawn lettering makes this poster. Genesse only has a few posters up, and this one was by far my favorite. The way the ascenders follow the lines of the buildings in the background is very sweet.
Rebecca only has these three poster up but their clean lines and sweet images caught my eye. I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with.
Has a bunch of posters up. He plays with different combinations of type, letters, color and sizes. Everything looks like it’s been letter pressed (whether it was or not is almost moot because the look is so successfully mimicked that it passes as letterpress for me… if it isn’t actually).
All of her posters have the same zany colors and use of type… if you’ve ever listened to the band Animal Collective, this is what their music would look like if it was translated into pictures.
I love the hairy texture on the C in this particular poster. I can’t imagine how long it would have taken to draw it… so long. Everything about this poster rocks my socks… it’s telling a story and at the same time it’s conveying the information really well.
The beard… ’nuff said. If you know Iron & Wine you know how perfect this poster is for them. It always tickles me when I recognize the band and can see how well or how badly the poster suits the music.
Reasons this makes me happy
1.) This lady can DRAW!
2.) There are three panels with text at the bottom spanning all three (great layout)
3.) Hand lettering always makes me happy.
There is an arm, a shadow and text. Simple, and yet the combination of hand lettering traveling up the arm and the type following the outside is a really difficult trick to pull off. Not only is there good hierarchy here but it’s also a beautiful poster that I would totally hang on my wall.
This is a really beautiful poster. The typography fits those spaces so well… oh I just wish that this was a better picture! It pays to take good pictures of your work, folks.
I have no idea who the Watson Twins are, but these sweet little faces and the proportions of their limbs makes me want to find out.
It seems like there’s always one artist in each section that I fall deeply and irrivocably in love with and Eleanor is that person for the “G” section. Every single one of her posters is so gorgeous and, even though there are animals in most of them, she manages to make them feel like they totally belong on a gigposter. CHECK OUT THE REST OF HER WORK! Gotta gotta gotta go see it!
Again, I’m such a sucker for hand lettering. The colors work really well here and ever square inch of this poster is makingme want to dance. Can you see the little pipe-smokin’ man in here? Little details like that are sweet surprises…
