Art Chantry

Art Chantry is a great artists I like his unique style that he creates on each individual poster. He puts the time effort and love that should be placed in poster making. Last semester I went to hear Art Chantry speak at the AIGA meeting, he stated that he had little concept of Graphic design but he understood the process of printing his unique style of screen print posters propelled his art to the top. He only worked with specific people who were really interested in creating posters that were visually appealing and artistically intoned. 

He mostly worked with rock bands, if he liked there music he would create their poster and CD cover for them. He was very selective as to who he wanted to work with or stamp his name on. Each of his posters pushed the envelope for other posters artists to go in a different direction. 


The GigPoster site is a site where you can post or buy posters. I love the art that is on each poster. You can see the uniqueness of each artists. The top posters of the week are amazing every week its always new and something fresh. The artists really get into there craft of creating something that is so beautiful and unique. These posters remind me of art chancery posters, he uses the unique space within the posters and takes chances on each of his designs. GigPosters is a great site for graphic designers who love poster art and also those who are poster collectors.

Johnny Cupcakes

This designer Johnny Cupcakes,  is my favorite t-shirt designer. He started out at the bottom and slowly making his way to the top. Johnny sold t-shirts out of the back of his toyota. From that point on he created a lucrative business that has 5 chains open in the Virginia and Maryland area. He continues to grow his business by traveling around the world and speaking at different colleges to promote young people like him to follow in his footsteps and also to work with his company as well.
