Big delay but we’re still rolling on this tomb… er, tome. Whichever.
The Meat Puppets poster by the good fellows at Aesthetic Apparatus has long been a source of the feelings of both love and hate within my peer group. Basically it’s a poster-child (no pun intended!) for meaningless, clip-art driven design, and yet you can’t deny the thing is a beauty, and it kinda looks like the mask is made out of hamburger. So that’s hot. So for me I have days that go one way and days that go another, but I’ll bet you never knew what he looked like beneath that mask. As the piece that I can most directly tie to the resurgence of the gig poster as an art form, I have no trouble putting it along side the other works in this story, that’s for sure.
