Gig posters have a long and beautiful history. Moving from simple block lettering in the '50s and psychedelic text in the '60s, modern gig posters are often gorgeous pieces of illustration and places to experiment with the weird and wonderful.
In this gallery, we've pulled together a collection of gig posters by a variety of comic artists, from small indie artists such as Inés Estrada and Maré Odomo to some big names like DeForge and Adrian Tomine. Feast your eyes!
Hi there, everyone. How's your weekend going? Relaxing? Ready to have some eye-searingly awesome art dumped straight into your brain courtesy of the Internet? Good, because that's exactly what Michael Olivo has to offer in his amazingly lurid work.
An illustrator and cartoonist from Oakland, CA, Olivo's work has appeared in the New York Times and the Russian version of Esquire, full of popping colors, twisting limbs and creepy lines that's highly reminiscent of Johnny Ryan, and even the occasional happy sandwich. Check out a few of our favorites from his gallery below, including collaborations with fellow artists Niv Bavarsky and Jesse Balmer!
Niv Bavarsky's editorial illustrations take us to more familiar corners of the human animation: San Francisco's SantaCon, Pokémon, the domed residences of our post-cataclysmic future and visual representations of anxiety. But his own drawings and paintings depict otherworldly scenes that feel genuinely alien, as if we are peering into another dimension that sits slightly outside our comprehension.
