So I have been on a bit of poster kick lately. Well, let me amend that statement, I have been on a design kick lately, and that has manifested itself into a poster kick lately.
I used to do a great deal of design work when I was at the CC Ranch (Clear Channel). That was really the one aspect of my time there that I genuinely do miss. The thing about web design is that is has a shelf life. Sometimes years. Sometimes months. Sometimes even days. But as sure as the sun will rise, a website design will change. And then, you are left with a whole lot of nothing.
But, enough rambling about my design aspirations. That can be an entire (lenghty) post all to itself. Bottom line, I have been kinda into posters lately; but posters that put a new, interesting spin on a concept or topic I enjoy.
Right now, that is Star Wars. There are a ton of pretty run of the mill posters for Star Wars out there. The ones I gravitate towards are real art pieces.
The first ones that I LOVE are these three by Ant Lucia. They are WWII Pin Up Style (which I love), and when displayed as a set, they color and design should be simply stunning. You know them must be good posters if my wife actually said I did not have to isolate them to my office.
I am in the process of getting them framed. When that is done, I will be one happy man for sure.
The other one is this set of 6 that I found on Etsy. Mondo did a set of posters that have some similarity to this (which were unbelievable, but also stupid expensive). But I dig these as well..
