In 2012, I decided to challenge myself by composing a series of posters for the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. The theme of the poster series was inspired by retro or ‘cheesy’ advertisements, with a nerdy twist: a Star Wars-inspired “Discount Droids” poster in the style of newspaper car ads; an ad for beans featuring LSP from Adventure Time in the style of ‘50s Campbell’s Soup ads; a poster promoting a bar and brothel from Game of Thrones featuring the friendly ladies of season one (and a nod to a famous patron). For this project, I taught myself to screen print and hand-printed limited editions runs of 75 prints for each of six different poster designs, creating an original, tangible, and authentic feel to each piece. A series of six of these posters can be viewed or purchased on my Etsy shop.
