If you haven’t heard of the Keep Calm And Carry On postercraze, you’ve either been living under a rock for quite some time, or you’ve been living under a rock for quite some time. Only with the latter you’ve done so on purpose. Because let’s face it, we’re all terrible sheeple sometimes. Not pretty.
It’s been fun for a while, the phrase is ironically fitting. But come on, is it really necessary to buy a Keep Calm And Carry On tee and prance around in it??
My answer to that is..
If an original piece of art goes way beyond your budget, there’s always the screenprinted posters to look out for. There are so many brilliant prints and posters out there – of which most of my favourites turned out the be gig posters, go figure! – that I owe a couple of them a post at the very least.
Let’s start with Strawberry Luna. Last year I was googling images when my attention got caught by a Tori Amos poster, created by her. It turned out to be part of a post on the More Ways To Waste Time blog, where I wound up snooping around for the next hour.
This coincidental moment inspired me to start blogging, actually.
So here’s a little round of applause for the talented Strawberry Luna and a selection of her work.
Some more eyecandy for ya:
