Flatstock 24 (Part 1)
Pictures of API’s Flatstock 24 at this year’s SXSW in ATX. More than 80 poster artists from around the country are in attendance, showing and selling work Thursday, Friday and Saturday. A lot of familiar faces and some news one. There’s no way to get pictures of everything but this should give you the general idea…
Furturtle had the first booth as you walked in the door.
Texas’ own Charlie Hardwick
From a distance I thought for sure this Swell Season poster by Santa Monica’s DKNG was digital but close inspection reveals the dot pattern. Tight screenprinting. On a sidenote, it seems like everybody had a Swell Season poster so I asked around… apparently, the band rather than using just one or two poster artist, commissioned a different artist for each date of a recent tour.
Strong and bright graphics from Dan Stiles (Portland, OR).
Lure Design Incorporated from Orlando had some nice work.
F2 Design from Lubbock were letting people print their own letterpress Flatstock posters. Thanks to Matt Flick for clarifying .
Chattanooga’s Young Monster.
Wall of Lil Tuffy from San Francisco
Close-up on a Deerhunter poster by Lil Tuffy. This poster gets my vote for best poster featuring an eyeball. Awesome.
