Gig posters are a fantastic blend of typography, illustration and print technique. The hand printed process has a raw honesty, giving the works a certain soul and character.Today screen printing is still a popular form of printmaking and we believe it is the leading gig poster artists who keep the humble artform alive.
What better way to celebrate movie and band posters than with fictitious bands that made their debut appearance through the lens of pop culture. Bands from the silver screen can taken us into outer space where we hang at the local cantina, snapping our fingers to the latest jizz track. Or imagine going back to the 70’s where we catch The Carpenters supporting the infamous Ziggy Star Dust, then jumping in the Dolorian to take us back to get our honky tonk on to The Soggy Bottom Brothers. Only these gigs didn’t happen in our world... but in another realm.
