ah - I should've clarified. I just purchased this one. As I am as much of a collector as I am actual designer.

But its so good, I had to share it.

The desinger is Andrio Abero from Seattle.

that arcade fire one is really fucking cool. I recently acquired Jermaine Rogers 2003 Radiohead "Pay Attention" silk screen. Pretty cool...

I've got that one....been wanting to frame it for a while. Wouldn't put it in my bedroom...too creepy. There was a big discussion with Jermaine about this poster on another forum I used to go to. There's some golden spiral shit going on. He explained pretty much the entire poster. Very cool

any chance you have the link for that discussion? I have it framed and in my room along with a few other choice silk screens from shows I attended.

I'll ask around...it's probably a 3 or 4 year old thread.

got it (directly from Jermaine himself):

OK...

Look at the image, as it has been sectioned out.
The very main-outer border of the poster...the ENTIRE POSTER is one approximate golden rectangle! See it?

http://jermainerogers.com/images/posters/03_radioheadPHI.jpg

Note the obvious centering of our 'protagonist', the little guy pointing. Through this method, unconsciously, you see him first. The fact that there are some superficial aspects Ive added to the image that suggest that the little guy might be 'me', you immediately have a personal interest in him. I've backed this up with 'phi'...centering him in this huge golden mean. You then connect with him through his eyes...and through 'color' (as someone mentioned earlier). Note that his finger lies ON a golden mean line. This makes it key in relaying contrast: a very solid 'us and them' vibe is immediately established. 'We' the viewers dont even have to ask who represents 'us' in this picture. The 'golden mean' has figured it out for us. You 'knew' before you knew.
Clearly, in the top half of our rectangle (the residual area outside of the golden area), we see, seemingly battling the 'finger' of our hero, the eyes of the 'protektor'. The large breasted, scantily dressed women (symbolizing sex) and the 'money-men' and 'media man' are mere perihperal characters. Their placement guarantees this.
Note, tho, the word HOLLYWOOD is perfectly set on a golden line...along with the 'eyes' of the 'protektor' and the pointing 'finger': it all screams of visual manipulation. Eyes, TV, a pointing finger. See it?
In our 'heavy' area of the golden rectangle, we have all of our REAL villians enclosed in one rectangle all their own: parents, and priests/preachers/etc. THIS is where your corrupting often begins. I see this group seperate and distinct from the 'protektor' and the 'media' and 'entertainment' groups...as I feel they are more responsible for the horrors of this world than anyone else.
Now, take the entire golden rectangle...and follow the spiral. It goes from our hero...through the 'university', past the false religion and the parents....and spirals on and centers in on what?
The Twin Towers. Its as if everything in this poster leads to this eventual outcome. The smoldering WTC towers are the real 'star' here...the idea on which this entire poster is anchored. The real power of this image, if theres any power at all, comes from the inclusion of the Towers. Its something each one of you knows about, and a topic each one of you have strong opinions and emotions invested in. Thats your conscious mind at work. Because of the geometric placement of the Towers in this image...WHERE they are placed...then PHI totally 'shakes hands' with your present convictions. Your CONSCIOUS mind and your UNCONSIOUS mind have just been UNIFIED.
And you see this poster and have such a reaction to it.
'Its SO true!'

It's just a unification of what you KNOW and what you are PROGRAMMED by your nature to 'know'. Does that make sense?
Through learning how nature works...and copying it...
Ive played a little 'man behind the curtain'. Its nothing important...its just a concert poster.

But do you get what Im saying?

nice - oh yeah I won the MCR contest - I dropped off the art yesterday - let's see how it comes out - it gets printed while I'm at Coachella - so there's a chance of a screw up.

For those interested - here is some of my poster collection (about 60% of it really) Only a few are up framed (!!!, Libs, White Stripes, AF and Franz) If you wanna know who did what, or if they can be had, just ask.
