Adam Hancher

This week’s poster pick is a chilling landscape entitled Villages I by Adam Hancher. Adam is a talented illustrator based in Bristol, England whose work is often inspired by folk tales and legends. You can read about his process in this interview with Ape on the Moon where he explains his methods of layering scanned textures to create the look and mood he is aiming for. Villages I is available for purchase at the Poster Cabaret.


Alberto Cerriteno

Inspired by pop surrealism and alternative cartoons, Alberto Cerriteno’s work is filled with rich textures and fantastically imagery. This print entitled Recuerdos is no exception. We see a small group of birds perching on branches sprouting from a somewhat distinguished gentleman’s head. The man appears to be crying and I hope they’re tears of joy. Recuerdos was originally created for the latest album of Mexican indie band Hello Seahorse, but is now available for purchase here.

Octoberama by Charley Harper / 30 inches x 30 inches

The Poster Cabaret is now carrying select pieces by the late Charley Harper, including this print entitled Octoberama: a fitting title for the approaching Fall season. Harper was a master in his use of color and ability to reduce elements to their simplest form. These are reflected in the warm, subdued shades of orange, yellow and red seen in the leaves above.


The National Concert Poster by Doublenaut

The National at Massey Hall / 18″ x 24″ print

Doublenaut serves up a haunting piece of imagery for this concert poster created for the National’s recent show in Toronto. The artwork was inspired by  “Anyone’s Ghost” and “Terrible Love”, two songs found on the group’s latest release. The poster sold out fairly quickly at Doublenaut’s shop, but there are still a few available over at the Poster Cabaret.


Trey Anastasio Concert Poster

Trey Anastasio & Classic Tab at the House of Blues | 18″ x 24″ Print

For this week’s poster pick A. Micah Smith (@amicahsmith for the twitter peeps) serves up a slice of 80s retro-ness. Forget the 1980s, he’s taking back to the 1780s. The illustration features a character with all the proper colonial trimmings marinated in a tasty tan background glaze. If it catches your fancy, you can pick up a copy right here.


Rupert and Leonard Print by Matte Stephens

Rupert and Leonard wait for the tram on their Swedish holiday – 13″ x19″ print

This week’s poster pick was created by the ever playful Matte Stephens. In this scene a young boy and his distinguished bear colleague attempt to board a cable car (tram) filled with mod haircuts and big smiles. This seems like a bad move as it appears that mister snazzy bear’s umbrella is holding up the cable car wire. If this painting was animated, I would love to see the next frame. Catch the tram here.


Broken Social Scene Concert Poster

This week’s poster pick was designed by Concepcion Studios for a recent Broken Social Scene concert in San Francisco. The grainy dots used throughout this poster add a nice vintage feel. The fluffy clouds in the background are not as realistic as the rest of this scene, but happen to work well with the overall playfulness. I can’t think of a better way to escape from Alcatraz than with a fistful of brightly colored balloons. Get carried away here.


2010 Sasquatch! Music Festival Poster

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2010 by Invisible Creature

Every year at the end of May (since 2002) the Sasquatch! Music Festival rears it’s hairy head in a small town along the Columbia River in Central Washington. The three day bash features bands like Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Massive Attack, LCD Soundsystem, They Might Be Giants and Camera Obscura just to name a few. The promo poster for Sasquatch! 2010 (created by grain edit fave Invisible Creature) features a whale whose blow hole juice magically controls Abobe’s text wrap feature and a giant furry beast that can easily touch the esurance logo found floating in our atmosphere. If you were unable to make the show you can still pick up some of this poster sweetness right here.


The Swell Season Concert Poster by The Small Stakes

The Swell Season Concert Poster by The Small Stakes

This week’s poster pick was created by Jason Munn of The Small Stakes. It’s incredibly simple and yet so clever. I like how Jason used the the bars from the sheet music to form a bird’s nest. If you’re interested in purchasing this poster, you can pick up a copy here.

Rabbit Print by Leandro Castelao

This week we’re excited to feature this Rabbit print by Leandro Castelao as our poster pick. Castelao is based in Buenos Aires and has previously been featured on grain edit. Rabbit is presented in Castelao’s signature style and I must say that I am once again blown away. The lines look like wires creating some sort of robo bunny with a CD drive on steroids. Good stuff. You can pick up a Rabbit print here.
