Even if some of the type is hand lettered it is traced from fonts that just don't go with the whole feel of this poster, this poster is still damn cool but a different font would have put it totally over the top
This was my most sought after piece at FS2, & I'm proud to have walked out with one. Despite the appearance, I'm pretty sure this type is hand drawn. I've stared at this thing for a while, and still can't figure out how it was printed. You can literally feel the ink like a painting, and it's on thick-ass stock. Really, really well done.
the originality of this is striking...aside from being a beautiful poster! one of my all-time faves for sure.
don't know if you can tell, but there's all kinds of layered "texture" going on as well as hand overpainting.
as far as the text: i think it works great. looks like one of those old magazine ads where the illustrator left a blank banner for the typesetter to fill in.
