this is pretty much what rock postering looked like in the 70's. at least in seattle, where this is from. it's done as a silkscreen cardboard showcard style by an outfit called zeppelin studios.
- (at least i assume. it could have been done - if it's early enough - by an actual showcard company that did rodeo posters and such called the 'washington poster company'. they were an actual old showcard company like hatch and actually did a hendrix and a joplin poster that are highly collectible).
zeppelin studios were a bunch of hippies turned professional designers and were the shit in the 70's in seattle. they did some really great work - and some really bad work, too, as they got old and bored. by the end of the 70's they were a signpainting company and pretty much quit on the poster stuff.
this poster looks like prime zeppelin studios work to me, though.
thank god punk came a long and fucked everything up. imagine a world where this was the height of cool..
I'm just saying that there seems to be a lot of work on this site that incorporates distress patterns from various scanned items and applies them to seperate, clean images. And I guess I was assuming that's what you've done, and maybe it isn't, but I've used you as a launch pad sor such a discussion.
I actually dig this poster, it reminds me of some kind of disembodied elixer label. I agree with the sexy chocolat in that I would love to see another color. Dosen't even have to be much.
