Illustrations today from Labpartners, two illustrators from San Fran. I came across Labpartners when I has on a digital shopping spree on Etsy. I love the 50’ties style illustrations with the classic colour palettes of cream, fleshy pink and faded blue. I am so in love with the one with the whale, I want it on my wall immediately!

Studio 18 Hundred does fantastic silkscreen printed posters. I noticed them when they did a poster for the band Brian Jonestown Massacre, a crazy bunch, but a really cool live band. Studio 18 Hundred is founded by Chris Rubiano, Roger Bova and Sean Donnelly and you should definitely also check out their private sites.

See the posters here.

I think you’ve noticed by now that I have a weakness for silkscreen printed posters. And The Heads of State is no exception. I first noticed them at a Death Cab for Cutie concert where they’d done the poster. Great sounds combined with great visuals…mmmmmm

I love the posters by Hammerpress, I am not sure if they are screenprinted but they definitely have a sensory feel and a lovely retro style.
