Fair enough. Moving along - What are you favorite sites for buying posters from?



I know you didn't ask me, but here is where I buy my stuff from.

gigposters classifieds
eb
Lonestar Posters
Philaarts

And of course you can buy direct from most artists from their own websites which is what I do 95% of the time. You can also find some great information on OMG Posters about upcoming prints/posters/shows.

I love Shepherd Fairey! He is a little more political than I am, but I think his work is really cool. I just wish it was more affordable, now that he has hit a higher level of recognition over the years his costs are high right away, that I find. Not too bad for artwork, but a lot for a poster.

This was the only one of Fairey's that I ever liked. I couldn't even get on the site to try and order it.

The art nouveau lover in me loves this one.

I'll stop there. I don't want to devote too much to him if others are not real interested.

There are a bunch of newbury comics around me, it's nice to just stop in and flip through their posters. I wish we had a poster shop or two around here, though. I just want a poster show around.

Don't stop. Who cares if others don't like it? It's cool to see what others dig.

Some of the ones you posted aren't bad. Some of the new ones I've seen have a little too much going on. They leave very little empty space on their posters.

Yeah, I find myself more drawn to the simple concepts he does. If it just the patterns or like the image you posted. I am not a political person so his really political pieces are a bit much for me. And some of his newer pieces look like old money.

Hopefully you experts can shed some light on these for me. They are up right now on ebay. I bought them a few years ago. I love them, they are hung on my walls in beautiful frames but I am just curious to know more about them:

Monkey with drums

and

Monkey with guitar

All I know is that the posters were made by Henrik Walse for multiple shows and venues in 2002.

Okay thanks the mystery of your poster collection is finally solved. Very nice collection I want your Paris 07's, Rome 07 and Pomona. I will trade you a Rob Jones Honky for all three, just let me know.


Is the Honky signed in blood?
ewww.

I remember Rob proclaiming that to be a good example of a sniffer print in the run-up to the gigposters auction.
double ewww.

For those unsure of the reason to be ewwwing, clicky for piccy

I wanted Toru Okada for quite a while and when I finally saw it in person, I was disappointed. I thought it looked better on my screen than it did right in front of me. You needed to catch a lot details in the right light. After seeing it and realizing that I wouldn't be framing, I traded it.



I always kind of wondered if it did not look as good in person. I will mark that one off of my list then and move to getting some other Danger's that I would really like to have.

I agree it really does not matter who likes what, I am sure that I love some posters that everyone else on here would absolutely hate. Did not mean to say that I do not respect Sheperd Fairey as an artist he is just not one of my favorites. Everyone keep posting this is a good subject for a dead time on the board.

Died Young, Stayed Pretty is a candid look at the underground poster culture in North America. This unique documentary examines the creative spirit that drives these indie graphic artists. They pick through the dregs of America’s schizophrenic culture and piece them back together. What you end up with is a caricature of the black and bloated heart that pulses greed through the US economy. The artists push further into the pulp to grab the attention of passersby, plastering art that’s both vulgar and intensely visceral onto the gnarled surfaces of the urban landscape. The film gives us intimate look at some of the giants of this modern subculture. Outside of their own circle, they’re virtually unknown. But within their ranks they make up an army of bareknuckle brawlers, publicly arguing the aesthetic merits of octopus imagery and hairy 70s porn stars. They’ve created their own visual language for describing the spotty underbelly of western civilization and they're not shy about throwing it in the face of polite society. Along the way, they manage to create posters that are strikingly obscene, unflinchingly blasphemous and often quite beautiful. Yaghoobian shows these artists for what they are: the vivisectionists of America’s morbidly obese consumer culture.

People in the film!
Brian Chippendale • Art Chantry • Print Mafia • Andrew Bird • DMBQ • Clyde Jones • Ron Liberti • Tom Hazelmyer • Stephen McClellan • Bryce McCloud • Seripop • Ames Bros • Methane Studios • El Bado/William Ballard • Tyler Stout • Rob Jones • Jay Ryan • Mat Daly • Nick Butcher • Keith Herzik • Steve Walters • Shawn Wolfe • Noel Waggener • Jeff Kleinsmith • Mig Kokinda • Dale Flattum • Mike King • Dan Schlissel • Stainboy • Uncle Charlie • American Poster Institute



Looks like this will be pretty interesting it is about time some of these guys started getting some attention.

I posted this in a different thread, but thought I'd post it here too.

Have you guys ever bought the Art of Modern Rock? It's a truly great book with so much insight. I'd highly suggest picking one up. If you aren't a condition freak, you pick up a decent one for around $30-35.
