Honoring our good friend Alton Kelley, the great rock concert poster artist who passed away, here are the posters-of-the-month for May.
Note that some are brand new, for May and June events, and others surfaced from the archives--and of note, the ZEKE poster, which Billy Bishop in Austin, TX spontaneously created by overprinting on some especially cheesy pre-printed stock. Kudos, Billy! Still one of my all-time favs.
Also gotta give special props to CAD designer Craig Howell, selecting a car much like that which Mike Ness drives; Jeral Tidwell, for continuing his own tradition of excellence; and VonDada (aka Kirk Diedrich) for his inspired DIRTBOMBS poster, who wrote on www.gigposters.com "these are 4-color screenprints (grey, red, "flo" (fluorescent) green, and black) on 110 lb. bright white stock, supertight printing done by Nick at Tugboat Studios. Edition of 100. These sold out at the show for $30 a pop. Crazy!"

Yeah I have to say this, I had $199 discount on his concert, means all free and at the end I had to pay this asshole for nothing because he sucked...
