April was an especially rich month for rock gig posters. Some are freshly minted pieces, others just surfaced outta history during that period. I'm continually amazed at the talent brought to bear.
-
Note that Tara McPherson is one of this country's brightest fine artists, now working out her studio in Brooklyn, NY. Her poster was done around 2003, and came as a result of a brief fascination with Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion-series cars.
-
Many will recall Frank Kozik's famous poster for The Nomads (ART OF MODERN ROCK, page 188), but it's nice to see our European friends doing such great work for one of Sweden's top groups. The poster artist, Lars P. Krause, is a close associate of Danny F. Criminal (see earlier blog).
-
When I spotted Jeff Boyes' poster at http://www.gigposters.com/, many of his fellow artists commented that Jeff's work is reminiscent of fine artist and printmaker Evan Hecox's automotive explorations in Mexico.
-
Dirty Donny is closely associated with the West Coast hot rod scene, and has done many illustrations (including covers) for Mike LaVella's GEARHEAD magazine.
-
Finally, altho Jon Smith's poster here is an homage to Ralph Steadman's work, he may be the most innovative rock postermaker going. Go to http://www.gigposters.com/ and check out his latest piece, for Widespread Panic, and tell me he ain't da sh_t.
-
So, on to May and all the imaginative work, both historic and brand new, that's about to dazzle our eyes.

Good morning Paul,

Do you know the artist (or how to contact him/her) that created the Fu Manchu 'Skull Van' poster that you showcased within your gig posters post?

Thanks for your time and I look forward to your response,
