Chris Ware’s beautiful poster art for the 2012 Small Press Expo.
I have no words.
The mega sized version lives here.

Chris Ware’s breathtaking poster for this year’s Small Press Expo. Just look at that lineup of names, and that’s not even getting into the titular “small press” exhibitors, which the show is ostensibly about. And which number includes not one but three Drawnists.

My first poster :D I am soooo thrilled!! Still missing all the text but I love it! Got me wanting to do more in this style and more not for kids images once in a while :)

Genevieve Kote is on Tumblr, and I love seeing her try something new.

Go now, and have your mind blown by the work of Alvaro Tapia Hidalgo. I have been bookmarking artists whose work I wish to buy and you can be I’ll be spending a few dollars here. Lovely stuff.

I have a bit of a hate-on for the torrent of minimalist movie posters that seems to have become a tired trend over the last year or two, especially when done poorly, but these smartly designed and illustrated Hitchcock tributes are another story.

Wow. My friends and international rock stars of the rock poster scene (not to mention the all the packaging design, identity design, and graphic design in general) have achieved a major milestone. Aesthetic Apparatus has published 500 posters in their twelve years of existence. An amazing accomplishment worthy of hoisting a few celebratory beverages from afar: Here’s to 500 more, Michael and Dan!

John Pavlus at Fast Company Co.Design articulates the conflicting thoughts running through my own head about this. People have understandably been quick to attack John for this, but I believe it’s still an important conversation to have (although I agree he chose a terrible title). 

Let’s say I did buy one of these posters: what on earth am I supposed to do with it? Hang it in my living room like some overly aestheticized/sanitized symbol of a blindly horrific natural disaster that I had no direct experience of? Or, worse, as some sick, bragging monument to my own willingness to “help”?
(…)
It’s not impugning Signalnoise’s motives to ask these questions, but it does make me wonder if the designer fully thought through everything that the project implied before starting it. If not, we can hardly fault him—the first response to any tragedy is always emotional, for better or worse, and the urge to just dosomethinganythingNOW is a powerful one.
(…)
But then, shouldn’t our desire to donate come from actual compassion, not as a side effect of our fascination with pretty artifacts? Indeed it should. Of course, there are a lot of things we should do out of basic human decency that often go undone. So maybe projects like these are just coldly efficient, making lemonade from lemons. Yes, the actual product is unavoidably, fundamentally grotesque if you look beneath its tasteful surface.

Star Wars
My take on the original Star Wars Trilogy. Officially-licensed, limited edition 24x36” screen-printed posters available through Mondo Tees on Monday 20th December. A small number of signed artist-proofs will be available from me on Wednesday 23rd December.

I pronounce Olly Moss: KING of movie posters!

Malcolm McLaren’s JLA (by Felipe Sobreiro)
Felipe Sobreiro’s version of a 1977 UK version of the JLA, because Warren Ellis said so dammit: 

1977. London. You have been tasked with producing the poster for Malcolm McLaren’s JUSTICE LEAGUE film.
