From old analog ads to gig posters

I like designing gig posters for my band starting from old analog adverts, propaganda posters, and other vintage creations

I’m not good at drawing, at all… So when it came to doing posters and flyers to announce gigs with my band I decided that the best solution was to hijack existing stuffs, mostly vintage advertising and propaganda elements from the 1910’s to 1970’s, and mix them in a new form so that it fits a concert announcement, and ideally the ‘philosophy’ of the band.

In this period all ads and visual elements were done in a very analog way, meaning these were only paintings, or patchworks. Each one resulting in a unique piece of art, whatever it promoted…

Unfortunately – from what I know – it’s not possible to import external images here, so you’ll have to copy-paste the link below to see my creations, but it would be nice to have your Lomographer’s and analog lover point of view on these :)

Here they are:

Hope you’ll like them and let me know (and especially if you don’t, so that I can ge better at it!)

    those are way cool. I especially like the first one in the series with all the colors, the nu generation with the ape in the suit and the black and white series with the animals.
