Vuela Print

Posted by Scott

People often ask about the origins or significance of my posters so I’ll be posting the stories behind them from time to time.  Pictured above is the "Vuela" print, a variation of the "1971" print.  I created this after I first visited Spain; Vuela in Spanish means "Flight". I saw this word everywhere in the airports and it stuck with me. I spent most of my time on that trip in the city of Barcelona which is filled with design and art, it truly is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.  This poster was meant to evoke the same sort of feelings I got from the people and places I encountered on that trip.

Gallery+Show – Saturday in Sacramento

Posted by Scott

I’ll be doing a poster show at Sacramento’s Artisan Gallery this Saturday, 11/10/07.  There will be large format Giclee versions of many of my prints on display as well as a lot of 12×18" show posters.  All will be for sale along with prints from the shop and t-shirts. Afterwards I’ll be doing a Tycho set with visuals and all.  Try to make it out, it’s free and it’s a very cool venue so should be a lot of fun.  This will be part of Sacramento’s "Second Saturday" art walk which is always a great time. The show runs from 6-11pm.

Today is the final day of the OFFF festival in New York.  I want to thank everyone who came out to see my talk on Friday and the workshop on Saturday.  I’ll be around all day Sunday so if you haven’t already, stop by the ISO50 booth (right in front, no OFFF ticket needed) and say hi! I’ll also be playing a Tycho set Sunday night at the OFFF after party.

1971 – Reprinted

Posted by Scott

The 1971 Print has been reprinted and is now in stock at the ISO50 Shop.
A lot of people have asked me what the significance of the year 1971 is (no, it’s not the year I was born). Hunter S. Thompson’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” first appeared as a two part series in Rolling Stone magazine that year. Wikipedia sums up the main theme of the book which was based on these articles:

“It explores the idea that 1971 was a turning point in hippie and drug culture in America, when the countercultural movement no longer had momentum and its innocence and optimism of the late 1960s turned to cynicism.”

This print sort of juxtaposes the design ideals of the 60’s: the earth-tones and swirling, psychedelic, patterns; with the harsh, solid forms of the gothic lettering.
Oh, and also 1971 just looks badass all stretched out like that.
