Just because I named the category gigposter of the month, hope you didn’t took it literally and expected a post every month…
Anyway, this month selection is from one of my favorite studios: Patent Pending! A Seattle based design studio which is operating quite a while and made a couple of beautiful screenprints. The studio is run by Jeff Kleinsmith and Jesse LeDoux. Both have their own style, making gigposter. Todays selection was created by Jeff. It is a silkscreen poster with an edition of 75. The show was at the showbox in Seattle, on July 2nd 2004
Besides cool rock poster, they also do quite remarkable movie poster. Especially the poster for “The Godfather”, “North by Northwest” and “The bridge on the River Kwai” are outstanding.
For me the MUM / Calexico print was one of my first gigposters, which I added to my collection and bought it at www.postercabaret.com
Poster Cabaret is an Austin, Texas based gallery, specialized in gigposter and modern poster art. The webshop offers a wide range of poster. The service was always very good and they arrived in Germany at perfect condition.
